I received my hdpe feihu shooter from Aliexpress today. First impression out of the package (besides "why am I the only one who doesn't get extras?") was that it was heavy and bigger than I expected. It's also a bit of a beater with its rough finish and mold release lines.
It came with some green bands and a tiny pouch, as well as itty-bitty tubes to tie the bands on with.
I banded it up expecting to hate the bands and the pouch. I actually like them both quite a bit. I also very much like the shape of this slingshot in the hand! I good ergo curve without being a straight wrist design. It makes full contact with the hand and transfers the torque from the draw in a very manageable way.
I took it out to shoot and was very pleasantly surprised. I was immediately hitting my 1.25" spinner very consistently. As consistently as I have with anything in a year, actually. It almost felt pre-aimed as long as I kept my form tight.
Lots more evaluation to come!

I does look like it fits your hand perfectly. The champ deffinatly had his bands right, I love em. So the frame he used is probably awesome as well. Glad you like your new frame.

Those look like the thin green precise, given their bright color. I've received several cheap Chinese frames with the same bands and they do seem fast. Is your pouch tied on with ribbon or the thin thread? I've found that the elastic thread they sometimes use or include can lead to premature band failure so be careful. I often retie the included bandsets for this reason.

For a inxpensive budget shooter..it will serve well as a pocket shooter...that pouch like's 5/16" steel.....3/8" if you watch ow you load the pouch...

I my self like using 5/16" ammo......Enjoy the peg head shooter......pick up some amber thread ribbon...5 or 6 tight turns on the pouch & tie any kind of knot..

you will be good.....I have read reviews on Percise Yellow & Apple Green..are some great choice's....some people like using tapper cuts...

3/4" x 1/2" length would depend if your shooting full butterfly...I know the materical really streach's...

The one I've got is smaller, I will post pics later today.
Anyway, it is a very intuitive frame style, I like it too!

That looks like a nice workhorse Feihu! After shooting Feihus, I kinda wish for all symmetrical slingshots to have an ergo curve like that. The contact and comfort in hand works really well.

The pouch does seem better suited to 8mm, but the bands are stout enough for 3/8"...
I have a bunch of 8mm from when I was injured and couldn't pull hardly any draw weight, maybe I'll shoot that some today and see how I like it.

That sounds super fun, but I like my teeth and my neighbor's windows right where they are, so I'm going to hold off on that for now :lol:
Who makes those pouches and where can I get some more?

nice review. Feihu is always my favourite fork since i was a child. I played only Feihu fork from the tree during my childhood. It was difficult to find a steel or iron rod at that moment. Even i got some, it was impossible to bend it to a ideal shape for a child. But i was able to cut the tree fork and shape it easily with a sharp knife.

Chef - I've bought 2 of these resin Feihus in black, about 5 bux each and lightning fast delivery. I like them just as much as the POM model.

Google translates feihu as flying tiger.
