Well I got myself a birthday present and it arrived today a classic Slingbow from Weber. It came on the card with the original shrink wrap never opened. Of course I had to open it, what good is a new toy if you don't play with it. What amazed me was the condition of the tubes, they are like new, not dry, no cracks, I don't know how this thing was stored all those years (I would guess at least 30) but it's pretty amazing. The leather pouch is also in like new condition. Of course I will replace the bands before I shoot it but the way it looks I could take it out right now and shoot a few rounds. This slingshot looks good and feels great in the hand, who ever designed it did a fine job.
