eBay UK SlingFind of the YEAR at a few quid plus shipping!!!? Possibly a fake, a clone if you will, but a TREASURE regardless!

I've heard loads about this 'original' design of this frame that a teenager in New Mexico came up with. Upcycling a skate deck is brilliant in my opinion.

About the design, I was surprised to see and feel the comparison to my Modi-DeadRinger, my best little slingshot!
Me thinks I should look closer at this little board sling. My hand tells me that if the "LBS" had a fatter tail for my giant paw, let's say an overall Hour Glass shape is what I am saying would be a keen fit for the x-Large hand?

That would maybe give a little space for a 'WinnieSlot'.
I still think it is a nifty idea to have a round in the pouch ready to fling at the drop of a dime. However, I have not incorporated the slot into anything I have so perhaps a moot point.

Still happy with this find! Now time to shoot some flying aspirin and see how good of a clone it is!!!

Cheers,
Mojave Mo

I didn't understand anything except the picture. That's a highly sought after frame! Your a lucky guy. Signed and everything!!
I've got a couple of his builds but alas...... None are signed
I was channeling the Jolly Roger, apparently poorly I might add.

So BpC what is the magic about this fork width......??¿?

Personally I chalk it up to Joey having found the perfect balance between height and width; leading the tubes or bands to shoot just north of the knuckles but dead in line with the wrist.
