Here is a pictoral story of my jig education. I copied Jig-Maximus from somebody here on the forum. It was a good start to give me confidence and my hands the working room to attach a pouch.

I also copied the Jig-Minimus from here on the forum. As long as I could anchor the Yellow Paracord I became adept enough with the help of my 3rd hand (teeth) to tye a pouch to rubber.

I found Jig-Perfectus on eBay for $5.00. It gives me tying room, and is teeth free. The stretch is adjustable if needed, and is pocketable too. It is cool enough that I may copy it with an Alu-Core and some wood scales....just because. I could also make it a tad wider and add a lanyard just to make y'all jealous.

Thanks Again to The Forum for the inspiration! Mo

Very cool, my brother has one of them little ones and loves it. You might have just changed them for the pic, but I think you will find it much easier if you hold the elastic on the fold in the clamp. So fold it, clamp it, then stretch it out and clamp the pouch. Forgive me if that’s wha you already do. But by looking at your pics it doesn’t look like your using them for there full potential.

Yes I just flopped some premade bands in there for the visual. I WAS going to add a footnote to my post so that y'all didn't think I was a sling-dumbazz.

Haha I figured as much lol. No one would have though of you as dumb Mo!! I actually tried to delete my post after I posted it, but all I could figure out to do was edit and remove it all and I didn't want to do that.

Well then you are the only one my friend. I am a young 56 in two weeks, have lived in 4 countries (including California), am on my 3rd wife, and ate Wheaties every morning since 76' until I saw what it did to Bruce Jenner. The upside is that I have a happy dog that has just finished a year of training me to do whatever it wants me to do.

Could jig perfectus also be used as some sort of pocket shooter?

Jig maximus looks like part of the rigging on an 18th C British ship of the line. "Make fast the leather on the f'ward mizzen mast, and don't over-stretch the elastic, there's a gale over the bow." (I am re-reading the Hornblower series, so right now everything looks like part of a sailing vessel).

And, with visions of pitched naval battles in my addled mind, Jig minimus looks like a crude ship's surgeon's tool for tying off arteries of amputated limbs with cat-gut ligatures.

Rediscovering them in my dotage. Great yarns and highly recommended. You can learn a lot about aiming by reading Forester's descriptions of shooting a naval cannon.

Rewind. Jig-Perfectus is a Pain in the Assucus! No more screwing around for me. I dropped Fiddy on this beauty. My Mom is 75 and she still gives me a Fiddy for my birthday, mostly because she still thinks I am 13. Put on your sunglasses before you view this new banding jig. I am going to call it Jig-Amazingus!
