Looks like it might have some flex during the cast (AT).  Nice work!

nice job! i really like it! first look and it thought it was bone lol

one thing is i believe that a basket maker is dug into the thrower but no doubt that that will throw darts!!  (AT) (AT)
Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

you should post some pics!

I throw a lot of unfletched darts. It helps me tune them and practice my release.  I finally added some fletching to the darts I take to the meet.

Yeah the first time I threw this atlatl it snapped my dart in half and half flew over into the neighbors yard and it was interesting to explain why there was a spear stuck in the dirt in their backyard
