Hi guys recently I thought up this design combing lee silva's ocularis attachment method, simpleshot's scout and rayshot's champ compact size.
I also decided on a rayshot-esk thin g10 core with natural wood scales.
Here how the design came out...

I stabilised the goat willow fork to add alittle weight and more strength to those rather thin fork tips.
Here is how it came out hope you guys like
All the best

That's a high-grade little gripper, big boy!!!!

I'd wondered how long it would be before one of you "woodchucks" came around with an organic Ocularis...

First I've seen besides that one of Nathan's. (He had a bit of a "head start" on the matter)

Very nice work, Lewis!

Say hi to "Big Daddy Dines-A-Lot" for me, ok!!!! hehehe

...and happy Holidays to the lot of you!

I'll need a new vacuum upgrade soon as this one is abit small for this pot but it'll do for the time being.
