Hey everyone!

I've recently noticed there are a lot of PFS on here. I was wondering, what are the advantages or features of a PFS?

Cheers Luke

They're really great for shooting yourself in the hand.
If you're into that sort of thing...
This made my day! But I love pfs, if you can learn how to shoot it well, I find it more fun to shoot. And also a lot more convenient size wise.

I'm not exactly sure what its called, but I turn the pouch to make it parallel to the ground,slighty slanting the slingshot. Look up how to shoot pfs on YouTube and find ones made by pfs shooter.
Sorry I can't link it, I'm on my phone.

i began shooting PFS few months ago, fork hits galore in the beginning, but! that only lasted 1 day, i did a little reading on the technique, and immediately stopped having fork hits, its very very easy to learn, plus once you gain the twist method and confidence you can do other types of shooting flat top, flatstrap, bareback. plus PFS seems like one of the better ways for fast target acquisition, is OTT but right in line with the eyes. as small as they can be made you can still shot the larger ammo with the same strength bands. lots of pros, very few cons.

do you shoot them on a forward fork angle to avoid fork hits ?
you could i suppose? when i get into too many adjustments i find that its out of fear, practice with peas, once you get the hang of the pouch twist you would see that it is as easy as shooting otf its just getting the hang of the mechanics involved the fork twisting as the band retracts causes a slight jump in the pouch, which acts to clear the forks with short forks and an intentional cant to the ss you might even negate the jump driving the shot into you forks or worse your hand, once i become 100# reliable with the flatstrap shooter i am going to get brave and attempt making darts and shooting them. it is an accomplishment to shoot knowing you are pushing the limits.
