Hi all,

I have been doing a sort of my slingshot items and came across a PFS frame that I must have put to one side after one to many fork hits. I want to give it another go and was wondering if anyone has ever put tabs onto their PFS with tubes and if this helped alleviate fork hits.

I think it helps. Especially if the tabs are thick and stiff. I think it lifts the shot away from the forks a bit.

Twist and tweak every shot. Try to practice with soft larger ammo first and then go from there.

I prefer to shoot gangsta. As far as I understand it, I should turn my slingshot 90 degrees and tweak the pouch.

It's tough to get a good tweak shooting gangster without a long draw and floating anchor.

I have done a little pfs slingin'. I draw to cheek with short bands and twist N tweak... but occasionally mess my release and get a forkhit.
Thick old belt tabs have pretty much ended the hits and save my bands a bit.

But I mostly shoot flats.

I have lately gone to chunky little gappers and love 'em. Ain't no bigger and no fork hits and I sling bigger balls. But I have too many special pfs's to leave them behind.

I will look for some pics and try some tabs N tubes. I also want to make aluminium bean ammo for pfs training. Anyone got any?

So I'd be best to start traditional upright and twist and tweak the pouch?

Maybe, or keep it sideways and draw back over your shoulder.

This is the best picture I can get of how I tweak when I'm shooting sideways and anchoring at my cheek. I press my thumb nail up against my cheek bone, so my thumb can't move out of the way when I release. It took practice with a wider fork to get this down.

Best for me might not be best for you...

Dannytsg, that is correct and make sure your thumbnail is facing you. I am no expert, but this is what works for me.

Here are a couple of pictures of how I hold the ammo in the pouch with a standard sized type ammo and 3/8 steel. That tweak of the thumb causes the ammo to go over up and over your thumb clearing the top of your slingshot. These pictures are taken of a top view if shooting gangsta.

When I draw, I draw to my right cheek bone. My thumb is bent in a 90 degree angle. The first knuckle of my thumb is bent and resting on my cheek bone.

Hope this helps.
