    What do you guys think of these?
    Made from 12mm Tufnol with a snake skin cammo job.
    Double theraband gold tapered from 25mm to 15mm and tuned for users draw length, lightweight leather pouch.

    This one has an asymmetric frame for a more ergonomic fit.

    Thanks, one is for me, one is for Mike Armstrong of Bushtruck and one for Andrew Price of Dryad Bushcraft. All three of us are a bit into catapults at the moment.

    Thanks guys much appreciated. I think you must have seen Mikes catapult as Andrew wasn't there. Mike was standing in for me at last minutes notice as I had had to attend a c section of our twin baby girls who came a little earlier than we expected!

    ah ok, that would explain why he looked nothing like the guy Google dredged up. he'd bagged a pigeon with it so its certainly effective. Nice bunch of guys, is Mike a BCUK member? I saw their hammocks and started preaching about whoopie slings...

    Congrats on the twins!

    Indeed, just got home to catch up. Was on my way to a bushcraft job on Friday and ended up camping out the weekend on a NHS floor!
