    Some Good Catties On Here

    Of course they work! ... whether they are practical...thats matter of opinion. A catapult...whether it is multiplex...or a natural... Is only as powerful as the bands you put on it... And only as accurate as the shooter. IMO multiplex is a strong material to make a board cut catapult from.... ive taken plenty of game with one... And them ones in the link are nicely made.

    Here you go baw... Check out this thread... Ive just tested the strength of a hardwood catty...over multiplex.... Think it was ash..or beech... The hardwood split...dangerously...http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/topic/315331-the-strength-of-multiplex-over-hardwoods/?p=3556490 that as absolutely no bearing at all on the quality and superiority of a natural hardwood seasoned fork . firstly if used properly a fork would never be struck like that and secondly if looked after properly seasoned hardwood lasts a lifetime .those home made forks to be honest wouldnt last two minutes out side in winter time and would be very difficult to use in the field . As far as i understood it... he was talking about a board cut 'Y' thumbstick shape cut from a board of hardwood... not a natural fork...which we all know is as strong as they come... And if baw is an absolute beginner... then a fork hit is likely..

    If youve got it for the longrun... then thats ofcourse the best outcome... Maybe you should have let it settle a while before taking it out... could have fecked off on you... a complete stranger... But hey... people do things different ways... good luck...
  10. Better with a multiplex core... and the nice wood on the outside.. ...

  13. Next was the multiplex... 2 direct fork hits... and only 2 small dents... The third hit split the wood on the fork... but didnt snap it... I then hammered it a few times... and it split and 'cracked' off.... notice how it didnt snap completely... The difference is... the multiplex wont snap and send the fork tips back at your face at a dangerous speed...whereas the hardwood...will split down the grain...with ease... and cause damage.
  14. Today i routered out some multipex blanks... and started a router on a hardwood blank... only the hardwood blank split... Ofcourse due to some error on my part with the router... But the way the hardwood split...with ease... Made me want to test it further... Id routered out 8 multiplex blanks with no issues at this stage.. Ill post 2 videos..of the 2 woods..in the same situation... The first is the hardwood (missing a fork...as it split on the router) ... possibly ash or beech? ... Clamped in... and hit with 12mm steel...from about 2/3feet away... as close as i could... Double theraband gold...25>20mm tapered... The hardwood split...dangerously easy on the first shot... If that would have been a fork hit... youd be sure to have a lump if wood lodged in your face....well...a sore face anyway... ...
