"Hex Box" - No Handslaps, guaranteed

OK, following the "Cutlass" and the "Shield", now I completed my first 100% efficient no-handslaps slingshot.

The frame of the slingshot is made from thin 6mm plywood, now very stable due to the hexagonal construction. It is a box now, completely shielding the entire hand.

The handle is made from round rod and there is a long M8 screw that runs through the whole slingshot. The "forks" are M8 screws as well, forming the cores for the round 20 mm wood rods.

Due to the thin wood, it weighs about 450 gramms only.

It may look strange, but it is a very good shooter.

Now my wife wants a new bird house for the garden :-)


  1. Where do you get the rubber from?

  2. Thera Band Gold, from ebay. You need to cut it into stripes, as it comes in 14 cm wide rolls.

  3. Thank you for answering.

    Happy new year!
