The "Tex-Shooter Classic" is a great slingshot. Few designs have been copied or modified as often as this one. Its simple shape makes it usable for almost everybody, its wide fork prevents fork hits and the clever use of a Forstner Drill allows you to produce the slingshot with minimal effort. I hold this design in high regard, and wholeheartedly recommend it to beginners and experts alike.
