What? How does one, WHY does one want to modify a Natty??!

I now own a perfectly perfect Natty created by the Devils-Son-In-Law. Wrapped with flats it shot like it was made for me. However, I wanted a dedicated TubeShooter based on how this felt to Natural to shoot!!
So I adpated the Toddy Snare-Wrap to this fork. It came out just right of which I could not be more pleased!! I've included some photos of what I'm talking about! The first photo is the 'before' modification.
Thanks for looking! Mo

This is genius!
This is really a nod to the Old Miser R.I.P who explained this to me on his Mule by Toddy. I believe as MattW noted above it might be known as the Toddy Snare-Wrap and Tie. For the older digits those holes make a world of difference when adding both flats or tubes! When using flats you won't make a loop with the wrapping rubber. Just put one end through, the wrap each around the fork tip in an opposite direction and the tie it off!

beautiful work Mo. That's a really clean and attractive set up. I did have a question though...

I've seen other frames with a similar band set, where the tubes are covered in a 'sleeve' at the end where they are wrapped. What's the benefit of the sleeve? And do you use a slightly larger sized tube to create it? Regardless, it's a really nice mod and only enhances DSIL's excellent work.

Mikey. As I understand it the sleeve lessens the abuse of the bands that are inside the sleeve. It is a standard Mod of PFS shooters. And yes the sleeve is a little bigger. My feeling is that on a setup like this it isn't needed because of the smooth grooves.

Bravo CPU!! Thanks for that. I am trying to be cool but I just scored an authentic Toddy Mule in a trade.
I need to watch the video again...did he ADD the Snare-Wrap and Tie holes as an afterthought on his own Mule?

I'm not sure; but, it seems so. Here's a full frontal pic.

Here's the older thread about this attachment method.

I only know these things, because I don't have a life and I spend countless hours reading through all the old posts on the forums...
