Oh, those shots do hit the spinners, in case you are wondering ????
Nice shooting skropi!! .. good form ! .. I am the same .. sometimes my 3/4 turns into full lol .. as u said.. hard to resist ! LolI felt something was off with my new 0.72 gzk, and it wasnt the super smoothness. The video revealed this, an almost full butterfly style, developed all by itself. I thought I was shooting as always, but nope, the urge to extend as far back as possible is hard to resist.

It's gzk 0.72, 15/10 taper, with a 23cm active. In the vid I draw around 140cm, so 600% draw factor.Nice loooong draw. What's the band and stretch factor?
Lol! I do wear eye protection when I try different techniques, but when I shoot my established ones....oh well.Nope. I don't care for it Skrop. It's too long. Unaccommodating and gangling.
Shorten-up 4 inches and reorient your draw thumb. You know the old saying? "Thumb to the sky and you'll lose your left eye."
(extra relevant in your case as you've shunned eye protection)
Get a haircut. You appear to have more follicular mass on the left side of your head, could be affecting your balance.
I'll be honest, I agree on all fronts ????So much to be learned from just our profile pics. Look at Big Dan up there shooting galaxy class. Take a gander at that thumb position. It's pure poetry. Then gaze upon yourself, long before you let it grow out. Yep, that's a handsome Greek gentleman right there. Lose the seventies porn mustache and you'd almost have a command presence. Sparta baby! :headbang:
You got the bands break in the middle with tapered bands?Nice shooting! I have ended up doing the same thing with 3/4 butterfly. I thought from your description you were going to say "until..... my GZK bands broke". I have had terrible luck with GZK bands breaking randomly in the middle of the band set for no reason.
Well, I am disappointed at the longevity of orange 0.72 gzk too. It is super smooth, in fact it feels like 0.4, it has near infinite stretch, but it does develop holes in the middle of the band near the pouch comparatively quickly. Oh, and it is slow.
The Chinese make some very highly machined and cool slingshots.... BUT, it's like they are made by non-shooters or something.
Yep, I give the sandpaper treatment to any Chinese frame that comes my way too.The Chinese make some very highly machined and cool slingshots.... BUT, it's like they are made by non-shooters or something.
More often than not the part where the bands are held has to to have some smoothing and rounding done to it, and more often than that the slingshots have sharp interiors where the bands impact, and invariably cause premature band failure.
It's a good idea to take some sandpaper and round over the interiors where the bands impact before using the slingshot...
I've had to do that on something like 95% of the wire cut slingshots I've received from China.
