Keep it simple

Recommended Posts

So these days it's easy to get lost in the catapult world,, different frames, why cut of elastic, what taper etc etc. I've been there myself. Today I wanted to go back to what I enjoy about catties and what it's really all about, nice and simple, no power tools, just a few things about the house. I got some old leather bits I had, some fishing braid, and cut a pouch. The fork I found last week, dead fall. Cut to size, rounded off with some sandpaper and a quick run of linseed oil. Tabbed on the leather and fitted the bands. I've had many more kills with a simple fork like this than anything. Don't get lost in the madness, the essence of the slingshot is its simplicity.

Ahhh, when I was about 8-12 years, you would have hardly ever seen me without a slingshot in my pockets..

I urgently need to make me one (or for my kids so I have an excuse ;))

Nice one!!!
