View media item 2582View media item 2581its like some sort of styrofoam ? i dunno, the attachment is literally on the band, it moves freely along the band, the band is not attached to it whatsoever, also, the bands are 1 continuous loop! very new to me lol
maybe these pics will help clear up the confusion?
Yeah, that's clearer now with the extra pix and the desription, thanks.
It's very interesting, and I've never seen or heard of anything like it before. I've no idea how well it'll shoot or how long it'll last but I guess it should be easier on the bands than normal connection methods. I'll be very interested to hear your opinions on it once you've shot it some.
Looks like it was more of a gimmick than a technical breakthrough. Pity. Gotta wonder why they bothered as they'll surely get loads of returns and a poor reputation if your experience is typical. It must save them a few cent in labour and material costs, but it boggles my mind to think how a concept like this gets all the way to market without someone testing whether it was actually any good.
could have been the fact it sat around for so long, im guessing about 4 years of sitting in a box in some1 closet, or perhaps its actually missing a piece.. havnt bothered to look up the original specs yet
lookin around google images, i cant find anything even similar, maybe this was a custom jobby, i dunno.
Hey Cerb, that's a Crosman Vortex and it did come stock with very powerful blue tubes but looking at yours I would say first: those tubes are not the originals (they're loaded way too far down on the prongs and look to be a larger diameter tube (possibly exercise tubing. Second, that foam pouch was someone's attempt at something new or he added it later to shoot round ammo ( maybe he was shooting arrows using only the tube and a hook type release. It is a very good frame, Get yourself a set of RRT's from Trumark or to really make her sing,load a set of flats on her from Tex shooter or myself. You will have some frame then Bud! ( I have three-love them! Flatband
thanx man! i love to have quality comments from you around on my threads! hearing from the man himself makes me happy
from what i seen of it, it can be very accurate, but whatever the pouch is all about is sorta a fail, but when it did work it was like a laser lol, full butterfly with these things also.
i tried to drag the band down, but it was way to warped to shoot with. i got some long blue thera tube i wanna try, but im trying to get them straight atm with push pins holding them stretched... last time i used them i shot myself 3 times lol
glad to hear you have 3! i suppose this was a little more than 20 bucks originally?
I think its not really a pouch at all. I think like flatband said they are exercise bands and i think that the "pouch" is actually the handle bit that you are supposed to pull on when using the exercise bands for exercise.
You know Cerb, what Tex said didn't even dawn on me,it probably was set-up as an exercise tool. I have seen it done before with slingshots. Anyway, you have a good one. Original sticker price for one of those was anywhere from $10 to $20. Rig her up and let her rip! Flatband
