Recently, I traded a Dankung "Dancing" model tube shooter for a Bill Hays Tubeshooter. The trade was with MJ and I understand that his wife, Jodie (sorry if I spelled it wrong), has laid claim to it. I recieved the tubeshooter the Saturday before a benefit sporting clay tournament, so I made a couple of tubesets and took it with me, along with a few pounds of marbles.

First off, I have to say that anything made by Bill is top notch, and this is no exception. This frame is a little smaller than a lot of Bill's work and fits me very well. I like the fact that it is made of G-10 and almost indestructable. That way I don't have to treat it like a showpiece, although it does qualify, at least to me.

At the benefit, I shot at least 4 pounds of marbles, a fist full of steel, and some paintballs, and all hit the ground with fail. I never hit a moving clay bird, but we had a lot of laughs and I had a lot of fun.

Thanks for a great trade MJ....and thanks for introducing me to world of tubes!!

Only person I've seen do actual wingshooting is.... Wingshooter. His target launcher makes me crazy! No offence to Darrell or anyone else who can hit a tossed item, but Roger does it from considerable distance. Like 30 and 40 feet... If you want a lesson, go see his vids. ( Rkyleh 1) is his ewetube moniker.
Go now! Be floored and humbled by a legend!

That's physically impossible, Pop. Although, Mom used to threaten to slap my lips off my face pretty regularly... So I guess it would've be possible then.
Who knows? I wouldn't have found out until I woke up "next Tuesday." You remember that whole '"I'll knock you into next week!" thing..

Nice shot, dude! What'd he throw up there a bottle?

It really is a fantastic slingshot! I was sorry to see it go but I never shot it and wanted it to go to someone who would appriecate it

Glad you're liking the tubes! They take a little adjustment, especially to shoot them in a looped configuration, but once you're on their wavelength it's easy to get hooked.
Jodi loves the Dancing! She shot it all day and is getting really good with it. It's a good fit for her dainty hands
