The POM X6 has been a useful pocket tuber since it debuted, but the fat blocky ears were always wanting. Recently Stevekt posted a nylon Antelope that pinged my buy button ... arrived in 11 days, an Ali record for me - the key is choose the epacket for a buck or two more.

This polymer cousin is a copy of the original stainless Antelope, but with a grippy rubber covering. There's also a tab molded at the bottom for a lanyard or magnet ammo holder. It holds and shoots like a dream - no flex or flaws - my new everyday stinger.

Most Ali slingshot prices bounce up & down about 10-15% - it's just their marketing style. The total cost was $8.24 - I'll order a couple more after the spring holiday. (Note the backwards thumbnails).

The tab is part of the molded rubber handle. The rubber handle is very comfortable and very grippy. I cut the tab off on one of my antelopes and cut the rubber off completely on my second one. Still feels good bare handled and is a lot more pocket friendly.
When I first saw that pic, I thought a shark had spit out the wet suit after eating the slingshot.

Ray - this rubber coated model is nylon ... plenty strong, I tried to bend it at the waist, but it doesn't flex. It's obviously a purpose designed tube shooter ... maybe to demonstrate versatility, it's marketed with a flat band and nice slender plugs. With 16 series tubing and 1/4 inch steel, I have a bit of slingshot nirvana.

Hey guys, the item in the link is unavailable. Do you have any idea where can I get this frame? I tried a picture search on AliExpress but no luck. Cheers!
Sad to say, it's no longer available. I had 3 and ordered 3 more but without warning, the order was cancelled. The only vague explanation offered was something about 'safety concerns' from the wholesaler and the 'seller was no longer able to provide it'. I'll spare you the details but that seller (Sexy Bus) is a ripoff jerk and I certainly wouldn't believe anything he says. This frame is made of nylon and I couldn't break any part of it if I wanted to. Hopefully something similar will be offered soon.

Thanks for the explanation @Alfred
Meanwhile I bought one pom x6 from dankung.
I really like my POMs, bet you will too. They're unique, a different feel than snapping tubes on a metal frame. Nice buy.
