I thought carbon is stronger than wood&metal.
Actually, it is different, not always stronger.

You can apply tremendous bending force to carbon fibre, but only in the fibre direction. The boards Baumstamm and I used are "woven", so there are fibers in both directions. So for a slingshot the material is ideal, as the bending force is the main one involved.

I think that a fork hit would dent the shiny surface, but probably not break the fork arm off.

But I won't try it out!
