    I wanted to further enhance my "Cutlass" design, with a solid plate against hand slaps. I also looked at the way Bill Hays stabilized the grip with a backwards directed "hook", and liked that idea a lot.

    The result is a slingshot that is basically a "Phoenix", but with a front and back part laminated to it. The front part holds the shield, the back part the hook. Both parts thicken the handle and give it the "Cutlass" palm swell.

    I also added a "Baumstamm" style lanyard.

    This is a great shooter.

    Pretty cool design, I like that hook guard on the back.

    Good explanation on the video.

    You're using a .8" ball on the big one? Dayum...

    The little one is cute. :D
