Hey Dutch ! Great slingshot. For your next one try laminating at least two different hardwoods together before you cut out your pattern. Laminations make your slingshot much stronger against breakage by alternating the grain pattern. Walnut, Maple, Pecan, Cedar, etc. any hardwood will make a superfine shooter for you.
Try to keep the fork height low for less wrist strain and design the fork width to fit the distance between your thumb knuckle and index knuckle the way you will be holding the forks. A nice wide fork is very easy to shoot, but not so wide that you have a problem holding it.

All out performance is found when bands are fully stretched at your anchor point. You can find this easily by stretching just the rubber between your hands. I don't really recommend this because it will severely shorten the life of your bands. Try finding the length of rubber that will be fully stretched about two inches past your anchor point. This will give you solid performance and better band life.
