Sorry it is Slingshooting.com I can't change the topic

Was just wondering if anyone has and what has been your experience. Is the rubber fresh or dried out ?

And most importantly is their shipping faster than Dankung, which is so slow I don't want to order from them any more !!!

Just wondering ?

I just put in my 2nd order a few hours ago. They are good. The 1st order I got 2 frames that come with bands and tubes. The bands and tubes outlast the Chinese cheapies at least 3 to 1. So went back in to have more of the elastics. I will start cutting my own bands and saving money.

Oh my bad. For some reason I saw simpleshot.com. Getting old sucks. It was simpleshot.com where I put in the orders. Don't know anything about the outfit OP was asking about. My apologies folks.

I have made 3 orders from them, shipping was faster than expected and the products were straight top of the line. Will be doing more business with them soon :)

In terms of delivery times, a good dose of patience will be required in the coming months, given the abysmal state of the airline sector and massive backlogs in cargo shipments in general around the world - thanks to the CCP Virus and its destructive trail.

I would also assume that the "free shipping" concept of Aliexpress may be a sidelined for quite some time to come.

The seller at https://slingshooting.com/ sometimes posts on this forum as "JPD Madrid". No problems with this seller, at least as far as I have heard.

I tried to when they first started advertising on the forums. Tried to buy a nice looking slingshot for what seemed like a very good price, but the price doubled in the shopping cart. Which made it about average priced. So... whatever. Then I got a message saying I didn't have enough "points" for free shipping. The price of the slingshot doubled again before the shipping was added. Now it felt like I was getting ripped off, but wait I got another message telling me I didn't have enough points to make the purchase and in order to get enough points for the privilege of giving them my money I was supposed to go around on social media, forums, and such mentioning how great the guy and his store are.

Nope, not buying anything from them.

I sincerely hate that for you Bob! I know the feelings of being burned or turned off by a supplier but i didn't seem to have Any problems like that when i placed my order and it was fairly large (nice frame, bulk elastics, new pouch, etc..) i plan on being stuck inside a lil longer so i went for it but the shipping was surprisingly cheap and i didn't see any price discrepancies so I'll keep you posted on how they look when they get here( i will note they have two warehouses in China and spain and if you try to mix items in your cart from the different warehouses it getts ridiculously expensive)

Order from both slingshooting.com and Dankung recently, Slingshooting took 2 weeks to arrive, Dankung to 6 weeks the difference is Slingshooting you pay postage, Dankung it's free. No problem with the quality of the rubber from Slingshooting but the quality of the 2050/1632 cocktail band were poorer than the ones I have had in the past and will not be getting any more!

I usually don't order that much at a time but I'll order 40mts worth. I do keep all elastic in the refrigerator, but coating them with 303 while in the frig is a very good idea, I will start doing that.

Thank you for the heads up.

yes both dankung and slingshooting are good for different items.yes dankung takes longer and is free but with the cheaper prices on most things at slingshooting it makes up for the cartage you have to spend 39 usd to get a big reduction in shipping costs at slingshooting 3 rolls of precise cheaper that way.and if you buy there pouches you save a small fortune.compared to dankungs liquid bullet pouches.allso i cant yous there website properly to get the free items. slingshooting dont sell sheshou flat band .which i am still waiting on,from dankung to try. if i dont find the sheshou .8 better than the precise .75 i will just buy through slingshooting .if Kalevala has had no problems in 20 orders i will stick with them.

sorry made a mistake slingshooting give a bigger discount if your order is over 0.8kg. just tried putting 4 rolls precise 3rd gen .75 in there cart and they said cartage would be 4 dollars because its over 0.8kg its a lot of rubber but very cheap that way.

I ordered from them again yesterday, they do a good job shipping and their products are first rate. I ordered more small pouches and a few little extras.

I order far too much from slingshooting.com ????, always a good service, never waited more than 3 weeks for delivery, average is 2 weeks, only thing they don't sell which I like is the black amber belt but they said they will stock it soon
