yep!One thing I noticed from the video was how different the attachment method is to the Hunter catapults. The bands hang loose in a loop like a Chinese tube slingshot. Yet fish demonstrated that it shoots well. Can the bands be tied as per normal?
yes it is perfectly easy to tie a set of flatbands as per normal,i just happen to have changed my bandset design to fit more models.
I like the way Perry ties his natural rubber bands, with the ends folded over for minimal weight at the pouch, but obviously this precludes having a loop at the fork end.
It also looks like the corners of the fork tips also poke into the band material. Does this affect the band life? I suppose if there is premature wear, the bands can always be retied on a regular OTT slingshot.
i did wonder this myself but as the steel is so highly polished there appears to be no friction marks at all after 100 shots.
How does this fork shoot compared to a Hunter Ergo? Does it afford the same forefinger purchase and release feeling?
it is a bit bigger than i am used to however it is comfortable in a fork grip
I suppose the obvious answer to all these questions is "buy one and try it out".
the sound is a let down but i shall invest in a better camera! i had started organising a slingshot tournament here but i lost my transport and it all got a bit much,the site is a shooting club with indoor and outdoor ranges ,proper bogs,restaurant etc! still maybe next year!Wow, I actually felt like I got to know you a bit better Fish. Absolutely great video and all you needed for better sound was a microphone because of the distance you were from the camera mic. You knew that of course. Thank you very much for the huge contribution you have made to our great shooting sport. Hey, I just had a wonder ! Could Fish perhaps host a tournament sometime ?
20 paces/yardsInteresting vid!
What was the distance from what you hit and penetrated the cans?
