Hey guys, getting my first natural almost done here....

I need a little advice in deciding wether or not the forks are too long, and how to attach bands, looking most likely to shoot TBG if i can find some locally. The current fork width at the top of forks is just about 3" on the inside edges of fork, and the forks themselves are slightly under an inch in width, possibly i could thin them more still?

Anyone, all critiquing is welcome, before I finish it.

cheers

That's a lovely looking fork. Looking at it the way you have it now, if your thinking of running your tbg over the
top of the forks, (OTT), then you could stand to cut them down some more to reduce wrist strain. Then you
would want to round off those edges a bit to keep band wear to a minimum.

Its a matter of personal preference. Try it and see. If not try something else. Look at how Rufus Hussey's forks looked and how he shot. The fun here is in the tinkering ,trying and figuring out.Your gonna have more than one sling shot anyway.That's the fun and the insanity of it all.

yuppers the taller the forks the more strain felt both on the shot and in your wrist, but keep the forks fat, the meatier the fork the less felt recoil. better grip...... but as TF says, it is after all individual taste.
