Behold. My vision of a Custom Re-Cloned Dead Ringer. Without the metal muscle of MakoPat this little project would not have been possible! Also thanks to SimpleShot for copyright reasons!

I didn't intend for the extra grip in the beginning, I was just working around the material. Then I realized I had a Sharkfin! Luckily my first life career was that as a scuba instructor. This was I can avoid odd questions from the wife about carving little fins for my online sling relationships including some 'hag named Pat'.

I added a photo which included El Big Phatty which is a fatted up Dead Ringer!

Thanks again for the inspiration. Also HUGE respect to the professional sling artists. I understand why Custom Slings start at $150.00. Time alone is that much. Add $50 in material, and another $100+ if you have learned your craft and turn out a physically and functionally perfect sling!!

Wow! I like it. I'll bet your wrist is pretty straight when you shoot it. Awesome swells
It is comfy and fills my hand. I just tapped a yard sign across the street with a 1/4" ball. However, I know that shot very well with my Dead Ringer. El Big Phatty is the one...a fat Dead Ringer. I shot it today with 2040 SS tubes and some 3/8" steel. Great in the hand and on target too. Don't like the shine though. Now I need a tip on un-shining aluminum!

The Norseman pointed out that I've got 'no business shining up a tailgate made slingshot!'. And he is correct. Aside from reflecting back into my face, it doesn't fit the vintage look I was hoping for.

The upside is the numerous hours of sanding and buffing was remedied with 5 minutes with some steel wool.

Just Shoot It!
