I found a file on Thingiverse of a really small sling that was very similar to a MGG Tyton. I got into slingshots after the time of MGG, so I was really happy to find something similar to a Tyton. Of course I had to print one to try out.

2-3/8" (60mm) across the forks, with just over 1/2" (13mm) fork tips.

It was great as a bb shooter, but I wanted something a little more meaty. So, I scaled the model up, but I printed it really thin to create a template. Then, I built one out of wood.(Walnut I think. It was another roadside brushpile find.)

This one is right at 3" (76mm) across the forks with 3/4" (19mm) fork tips. I am really happy with how this one came out, especially the shaping on the fork tips.

I like them both, but the walnut version is the winner in my book!

That looks like a very comfortable design!

Thanks for sharing that!
