Nice build. I think it was on Popular Mechanics where I saw a design that put the elastic inside the handle so you get more pull and thus more power. This type of construction might lend itself to that.

Brings back memories when I played with slingshot. Ofcourse it wasn’t so sofisticated. Nice cocncept.

Neat! Is that a single band with a floating pouch and how does the band attach to the forks?

Nice slingshot but watching that video was scary maybe it was just the angle of the camera of something glad it did not end up a bloody slingshot during the making

I’m sure that a lot of us had one of these once upon a time. Nice work.
