I've been shirking my responsibility as a forum member by not showing off this fine slingshot I got from the Harpersgrace factory a month or so ago. I've been busy! Anyway, here it is:

It's a pretty big fork but very comfortable to shoot. Scott has it banded up with some Tex latex cut 3/4" straight. Shooting it a bit this morning, I was struck by how much it reminded me of my favorite ergo slingshot: the Flatband "high grip" Ergo-

Don't see the resemblence? Check out how they look from the shooter's point of view:

The natural has a bit of a dip on the top of the thumb-side fork that the thumb locks into, just like the Ergo. Likewise, the index finger wraps securely around the other fork. This shape, if you get a good one, is just as comfortable and repeatable (for consistent target shooting) as a good ergo boardcut.
Two great slingshots from two great guys, I reccomend both very highly!

Thanks MJ for the write up, it's always nice to hear what people think of your work, The bands actually come from Gary, I've never tried Tex's flatbands but Gary's are a treat to shoot as I'm sure Tex's are as well.

Naturals come in every style imaginable. I always say that if you look hard enough you'll find whatever it is that you're looking for. Almost all my designs come from naturals I've found.

Looks like maple to me, too. The Flatband is a laminate of some sort.
