Post nominations for the slingshot of the month for February here! Potential nominees must be custom slingshots created in January. Be sure to post a picture of it. After we have at least 5 nominations we will create a poll where everyone can vote.

PS Sorry about the delay. I forgot to create the poll in the beginning of the month.

There's a lot that I like. I hadn't joined in Feb and I confess I haven't browsed through properly.

I like fish's glow sights; it looks just the thing for night-time sight-shooting hunters.

JoergS's compass is an instant classic, but I prefer his new versions' tie on points. Likewise, his slingbow demonstrates workmanship better than even his usual work.

pallan65's maple is a design I found myself accidentally copying earlier tonight - because it must have stuck in my subconscious. It's just about perfect ergonomics while maintaining symmetry.

Jim Harris' Osage Natural is just good ol' old-time quality.

jephroux's beast is a super power techno-monster that looks like it could punch through two sides of a Volvo, as does Frodo's Friedrich's W

However, all considered, I'd like to nominate Tom (bunnybuster)'s laminate. The use of laminate on a board cut is both visually enhancing and I am sure greatly increases the strength of the board, especially its ability to resist splits along the grain. I am sure it will catch on with many makers and I think it's the biggest single advance I have seen posted in February.

Well, Pallan's bamboo shooter came out one day too late, otherwise that would have been my choice.

I like Hi Tech slingshots. So the "Beast" by jephroux is the one I would like to nominate.

Regarding my own designs, the one I really liked in Feb is my "Delight of the Blacksmith" creation. I really love its Gothic look combined with the High Tech ball bearing equipped handle. It is a favorite piece of my collection as it combines functionality and art. Will bring it to Alverton!

Greetings, Jörg

Are there any more that haven't been mentioned? How long do we wait before voting. Not that voting's really necessary, it's almost foregone at this point.
