The classic wooden slingshot, now in Technicolor! Carefully airbrushed with acrylic paint in a slew of roy-g-biv hues, these neon slingshots are our most colorful mischief-makers. Each one-of-a-kind slingshot is handmade in San Francisco from forked tree branches and outfitted with a leather projectile pouch made from natural latex tubing and imitation sinew. With its smooth wooden body and eye-catching color, target practice never looked so good.
Details: Because each slingshot is one of a kind, dimensions vary. Height will fall between 7”–10", width between 3”–6". Slingshots are not toys. Adult supervision required. Ages 5 and up. Please read my safety guidelines and disclaimer before purchasing.
Slingshots are not toys
Even though slingshots are not restricted items in most places, children should always be supervised by adults when playing with slingshots.
Always wear eye protections. You can get them from from any hardware store
Know your target and what's behind it.
Make sure you have an adequate backstop for your target. Especially one that can absorb the projectiles energy enough to render it harmless on the ricochet.
Do not shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. Slingshot ammo may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone or something you had not intended to hit.
Never shoot at a 90 degree angle towards your target and backstop.
Always shoot at an angle to your target so that the ricochet will not bounce back at you. Inspect latex tubing before each shot for any signs of wear, brittleness or breakage. Do not shoot if latex tubing is worn or damaged in any way. Replace damaged or worn latex tubing immediately. You can order a replacement slingshot bands from me or many other retailers.
Give the forks a good hard squeeze to check and see if they are cracked or too weak to use.
Slingshots will last longer if stored in a cool dry place. Latex left in direct sunlight will dry and crack more quickly. Tree branches left in wet dark spaces can mold.
