Making a slingshot

I watched 100 video and this design seem to be the best way too shoot . Here is the 1st pics . It is made out of plywood and I just fitted it to my hand , sanded it , stained and polyurethane . Now I'm waiting for paint harden so I can to put the bands on and shoot it .

That is the strangest looking slingshot I have seen. Is it comfortable to hold?

Looks like it would be efective, what are you using for the bands"

The design makes sense to me. I can see how it would be much more stable than the usual skinny post.

That design keep your hand locked in place and when you pull the band back It can't twisting or bending back when you pull on it back . I will post a target later when I get it dialed in

The 1st pic is with old camera Canon power shot A520 with 4.0 mega pix . I haven't used it in over 5 yrs . The second pic is with my Fuji with all bells and whistle on it . It is16 mega pix , 24 x 720 MM lens with a 30 X digital zoom . It take 4 AA and eat them up . My canon take 2 AA and last for ever . I can't see a different in pic .

The resolution of even the best computer screen is far less than the resolution of even a cheap camera, so unless you actually plan to print out your pics, most of those megapixels in a camera are window dressing for the sake of marketing.

Here is a target I shot this morning . Nothing great but I'm learning . The grip , sight picture , anchor points and release like a bow in super important . I have a swollen knuckle in try different grips , anchor points and release the steel ball hit it . In the pic you can see that not hard to do . A learning curve

That is great shooting. Thanks for the picture of you holding it. I wasn't sure how it worked.

You will note in the 1st pic my grip is at both finger joints and 2nd pic the little finger is in the hole . So right or wrong you must grip it the same way every time . When you pull the pouch back to full draw it can't twist or bend back . That is the reason for the design of slingshot . So your sight pic , anchor point and release is all that is left ... Sound like a piece of cake .
