I must say, after initial inspection and a few shots with this Jungle Hunter II slingshot, I am impressed. But I am a newbie, so I tend to be impressed easily at this stage of my slingshot shooting. The slingshot came with four strand 1745 tubes. These are smaller and easier to pull than I was anticipating, but they appear to zing ammo towards the target with authority. As a comparison, these four strand 1745 tubes are heavier than my Tex-Shooter "Target" flatbands, but lighter than my A+ "Gold Winner" flatbands and also lighter than my TruMark RRT tube bands. I like the feel of these 1745 tubes. I do not like the feel of my TruMark RRT tubes (for what that's worth). The pouch appears heavy duty, thickish, and a bit stiff. It has a suede-like feel on both sides. The Jungle Hunter II is quite a bit heavier than my A+ PS2 (steel vs. wood). It feels good in the hand and the heaviness makes it feel quite solid, I would call it "bullet proof". I have not taken enough shots with it to establish a good aiming point yet, but in the first few shots I was within a 7 to 8 inch circle at ten yards. That should come down as I learn the slingshot.

I am happy I decided to add this one to my meager but growing collection. $19 plus $2.85 shipping from China to USA is very inexpensive for this slingshot IMHO. It took a day or two past two weeks to get to me after placing my order. It was sent registered mail, so I had to sign for it when the postman delivered it. The online tracking of the shipment is pretty much a joke. You know when Dankung shipped it, and then it eventually arrives. The USPS website still thinks my slingshot is in New York, but it's really in my hand right here in Colorado. Pretty useless tracking. But I'm not complaining given the measly $2.85 shipping charge all the way from China. Packing was perfectly adequate and my address was hand written on the box.

I bought a Jungle Hunter from them. It costs a bit more, but it got to my Miami forwarder in 3 days. I recommend them.

I got two Dankungs and they were in splended condition. I dinged them up trying to get use to them. Tell me how you like the 1745 tubes. Have you bought bulk so that you can make the tubes longer? I find them so short that I changed to flat bands on my dankungs but it is not designed for flats. Have been thinking on buying a role of the tubing and I may get some from Trulytexas.com 14 dollars and no shipping and you get it within 3 days. I would like to try the Dankung with 12 inch long tubes.

My first was the diablo pro but sold it because the tubes did not last just two or three days and i dont like the way the fork prongs face you I tried theraband gold flatband that did not last either.Then I spotted the dankung site and liked and purchased the Bi-Thor Dankung fitted with 1745* tubes and that was me hooked 2040* and 1745* tubes are all I use.I make and sell pocket shooters out of mdf they are very strong and work very well.

i had a Cougar but did not like it as much as the slingshots i sell. i feel more comfertable with flatbands than tubes. if i was to get another slingshot with tubes i would without a doubt get Dankung. Dude101, i think your jungle hunter was a bad one in the batch. all of the dankungs i have seen are made perfectly and had non of those flaws

Have 2 Dankungs, a General and Flying Ghost, both arrived, perfectly, the finish is a fine as jewelry, excellent finish and service, no problems, and they still look that way, usually carry one part of the day and shoot them regularly as I do my other shooters, they are first rate, you must have got someone' mistakes, I would e mail them, as they are very good on making sure things are done without complaints

I recently bought a Jungle Hunter II and it came rough around the ears too. I spent some time as well polishing it out and then I sent Dankung an E-mail expressing my displeasure about it. They said "I could get the refund". I sent it to them to help. Seems like they are going to perhaps fall into that old trap of becoming very successful, then getting sloppy to fill all the orders. I might order another one, but if it comes in rough I will never order from them again, I'll just make my own.

I'm not sure they actually have all that many orders. I ordered some things 2-1/2 weeks ago and my order number was "XXX". Then I ordered some more stuff last night and my order number was "XXX + 37". These 36 intervening orders in 2-1/2 weeks don't sound like a whole lot to me (for commercial operation like Dankung). I really don't know how large Dankung is, but in the 2-1/2 week period between my orders they were evidently only handling two orders per day on average.

My Jungle Hunter II came in pretty decent shape. No sharp edges or abrasive surfaces anywhere. The inside of the ears are not polished to a mirror shine, but they are smooth. The roughest areas are the thin slots in the ears where you insert the bands. I would expect that to be the hardest place to finish. These places are not bad, but not glass smooth either. I'm not really worried about them. These areas only contact the bands for the brief second while you are installing them.

Now I need to learn how to shoot this style of slingshot. My first day with it I had some reasonable shots IMHO. Nothing great at all, but I was keepting the shots on my 16"x16" target easily. But today, oh boy, not so good. I was all over the place. But I was trying a horizontal hold and a 45 degree angle hold instead of my normal "gangsta" 90 degree to the side hold. I was also experimenting with this "flip" thing I've read about here. Suffice it to say, my 16"x16" target at 10 yards was mostly safe from hits. Yeah, THAT bad. High, low, and left. Randomly. Nothing to the right however. Weird. A few of my "hits" don't count though - it's not really cool to nosedive the ammo into the ground in front of the target and have it ricochet upwards and hit the target on the rebound. Not cool at all. I guess changing your slingshot, hold, aim point, flip style, etc. all at once is not a trivial thing to do (not for ME anways!) Got to have more practice. More practice. More practice. I had to pull out my A+ PS2 shooting gangsta style to prove to myself that I didn't totally suck. I only suck with the new slingshot!
