Im debating on either buying one somewhere or just making my own but how much harder are they to shoot? I mainly just use my hammer but i want to try a pfs. Ive read that some can shoot arrows as well if you make it right. And would a pfs be harder to set up with my go to 3/8 x 1/4 tubes?

I'm a novice PFS shooter. I use 1632 single tubes and shoot BB's. No tweak, no twist, no flip (at least intentionally). I'd recommend making yourself one out of some plywood or a wooden spoon (check out boo-shooters). They're so easy to make that you can get an idea what you like, then purchase a nice one in the future. Check out the template section of the forum for some good frames. I don't know about shooting arrows though. I'd be afraid of skewering my hand, but I'm sure someone here has done it.

Ya i have a good chunk of thick high grade polyglass used in high rises for windows i could make 2 or 3 i think. Im thinking of trying to make it use the ocularis plugs as i have a few of them.
That would come out nicely!

I will say I agree ...make one, not anything nice. Fork hits will definitely happen. Wear eye protection. Start with light bands and small soft ammo...
I twist and tweak...barely.

Also once the technique is mastered...one can shoot any frame.

But the first frame will take a beating...you will become frustrated...and you will have FUN.

Good luck, slinger.

PS- Arbor's pfs and OPFS are excellent designs to make.

Im thinking of making a opfs out of some material i have at my house. and wondering with the standard template for the opfs do you guys think there is enough room to add the ocularis plug system in the forks? Im not at home so i can check anything so any info would help.

I'm guessing not. Someone made this one and the top forks look larger than a standard opfs.
