I once owned a pro diablo it was my first choice also but after a short while I soon discovered it was not for me it is to big and bulky.I sold the diablo and bought a pocket shooter from dankung, I also make and sell pocket shooters on ebay if your interested they are called the trophy they are 4 and 6 strand slingshots.

WOW!!! .....great looking stock of slingshots Hawk, you really have a unique style, and a very good one at that.


I don't know if Hawk sells those beauties, but that any one of them would be a great one to go with to start off My Plague.

The frame, and the Chinese tubes will serve you well without a doubt, I'll have to try some of those tubes myself one day.......

Cheers - John

Yes I do sell on ebay all the slingshots are not on at the same time just three or four and rotate them around as they sell.

Nice slingshots Hawk! How do you like the MDF for heavy bands? I've been looking for some material to make my own with, if mdf works then that would be good! am I right in thinking mdf will bend and tear a bit rather than just snap IF it breaks after much use.

Cheers,

Baz

Never had one break although I did shoot 9.5mm steel at a peice of mdf to see what would happen, it took several hits with only small endentations it took 12 shots from 26 feet to finally break /split it. I also put them in the microwave for 45 seconds to take any moisture out before I coat them in beeswax and varnish them.I dont think you will have any problems with them breaking.

hawk slingshots are great I own 1 and love it. I shoot very accurate with it and most of the time have to have it with me when I shoot so I would recommend 1 of his as the price is good the frame is solid the bands last a good time and it's just fun to shoot

The tubes stretch 6 times their length thats why they are short but I can make the tube sets to fit your draw length thats not a problem.
