Hey everyone. I've been shooting the scout with double tube bands and 7/16in steel balls. Training to use it to hunt small game.

Since using larger ammo and strong bands, my index finger on the pouch hand gets sore quite quickly. Like after 20 shots. I made a thicker leather pouch which barely helps. It's still a hindrance to my practice.

I could shoot 3/8in balls for hours without a problem.

I have considered switching to a simpleshot hammer slingbow so I can use a quick release with arrows and not use my fingers to pinch at all. This way I can maintain a heavy draw weight and not cripple myself.

I don't think my hands are abnormal. I consider them tough. Anyone overcome this in a method I'm not seeing?
