Metro Made | The Spanish Cafe Racer Slingshot

The best thing about slingshots is that it is like a very large pie, each slice a different flavour. One particular slingshot flavour is the legendary Spanish target style shooter. The Spanish Target Style has more in common with Olympic style free pistol and recurve bow target shooting than slingshots. With ergonomically shaped handles, adjustable […]

Metro Made | The Molly Pick-Nick Slingshot

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate to come across some new materials gifted to me by a fellow slingshot crafter, something called GPO3. GPO3 is a loose fill fibreglass composite, commonly used to insulate electrical installations. Like all things that are flat and tough, most times knife makers will use it to graft onto […]

Metro Made | The Wormhole Attachment (Lumbri Tyton Slingshot)

I recently bought a new Chinese cast aluminum slingshot called the Tiger Scorpion, while the attachment system wasn’t new (I have a few frames with the same style tip), the shape was kind of neat. So I banded it up with some bb tubes and played around with shooting it..it was neat! I had set […]

This project, titled the Taser PFS, couples a number of things that I love: machining metal on a lathe, working with stabilized wood and using leather tabs for attaching rubber to a sling. This all started when I was poking around YouTube trying see what other country’s slingshot tournaments looked like. I came across this […]

After doing some tests, all the […]

Tuff Udder Hero

Metro Grade Tuff Udder Pouches

When building custom slingshots, there three key areas of focus, the frame, the bands and the pouch. The last one often overlooked but it’s one of the most important parts of the slingshot. We’d like to introduce the first Metro Grade Tuff Udder pouch: The Big Bertha. Holding the ammo correctly, catapulting it forward, retaining its […]

Plexiglass Capuchin Face

Metro Made | Video – Plexiglass Capuchin Slingshot

Acrylic Plexiglass is one of materials that has so many uses and finishes that it’s hard to miss when used correctly. Often mistaken for polycarbonate (Lexan), Plexiglas isn’t the bullet proof plastic, it’s the hard, semi strong material that can be made completely clear again after being machined. Unlike Polycarbonate plastic, acrylic CAN be cut […]
