Free: User's Manual for the "Panther"

I wrote a very picture rich user's manual for the "Panther".

Download the pdf from google docs

The manual also contains a detailled explanation how to make and attach flatbands. This part can be used for any kind of "Over The Top" slingshot. Many of my followers have asked for something like this, so I included it into the Panther Manual.

The manual also shows detailled pictures about nice modifications, much like small tutorials.

Hope you like it!

  5. That was really informative! Knowing how to make my own flatbands will be really helpful, and all the different versions are awesome. I especially like the full tang version. It has such a unique look to it.

  10. Good manual, 1 question what you think is better: using the Cons knot or just flatbandstrips for the pouch attachment ??

  11. I use rubber for the fork attachment and string for the pouch. String weighs less.

  21. I am in fact working on a book in the style of that manual, lots of pics, not many words.

    PowerPoint style! To me, that is the modern approach to handbooks.

    The book will be downloadable free of charge.

  25. Finally got to read the manual you put together, simple and straight-forward. What do you use for tubing? In a vid you posted a while back you used square cross sectioned tubing, what kind of velocities is that capable of and where would I be able to find it?
