The short story is my 13 year old daughter picked up my SPS and hit the golf ball twice in ten shots. Then she did it a week or so later with my LBS.
She is blood, not worthy to own my SPS not LBS. So I went to the shop with four things in my mind:
1. Her hand size
2. Slings by Skarrd
3. Slings by MattW
4. Slings by Percy.

Summary. She likes it. She'll shoot it in the morning. Funny. I decided to hack out a couple more including one for myself. I somehow forgot I shoot RH and made them all LH!
I figure I need to practice my LH shooting, so guess which one is for me? Yup. The Wart Hog. I needed a little more meat on the bone so a wee bit-o-walnut and epoxy with a hidden pin is the solution.
Honestly. I have fun, and we have a lot of handmade things in our home. However, I really think my kid should shoot a factory made sling. I mean I wouldn't build a Harley for her, or a shotgun either. Am I off my meds again IBjoe..?!

Very Cool designs! you are a creative one!
I always dig your designs man, clean, simple, effective!! These will be dedicated 1632 shooters for clay ammo in the back yard. While I was hacking away I could tell she benefit from the ergonomic, but she did flip the LBS nice and smooth!

Great looking frame. Can see Skarrd's influence in that one.

My 13-year-old daughter stole my own made cool scatedeck Lil Plinker...
Using your 4mm hole stick-n-loop band attachment formula is just too smart and easy man!!

Go on build her a Harley Trike lol That is one gorgeous slingshot
Funny...I was just thinking!! Beware of Purple heart or whatever they call it in the 'BS'....aka Big City! The stuff is sappy, and purpley, and hard as metal too. I'll use my other pieces for Palm swells me thinks.

Dude it looks like you might loose that one nail. lol!! Stay of the meds my friend, that's a very cool frame
So far, so tomorrow I like to say. Seriously though IBJ. Is there a 'go to' sling for kids?? Actually an authentic dumb question I am thinking...should actually detete it. Gamekeeper John has his kid shooting a Chalice OTT I believe. Maybe I'll get her a Colt45. instead?
