A plywood or HDPE pfs, I suppose.
When you're trying to shoot a slingshot with no fork gap, the frame doesn't matter nearly as much as paying attention to your technique.
I was thinking along the lines of HDPE or equivalent,style question is mostly for large slightly arthritic hands, thanks

Its a very easy to cut out of plywood if you have a scroll saw ect . You can buy an aluminum one on the Pocket Predator web site also .

I recommend the opfs or the arber. I have very arthritic hands, but small.
I have a few in the works in 3/8" aluminium and I cam knock one out in hickory or hard maple that is scaled up a touch for large arthritic hands.

Oh and I am working on a conus or two.
