I got this slingshot out again to give flats another try. I've reviewed this one before, but shooting it a few times yesterday,I might not have Shown it's high end features. Now when I say high end, Im not talking "Bling" Im talking "COMFORT And PERFORMANCE " I absolutely positively hated the idea of going to flats, but due to this little shooter Im going to give it another try. I like the bands close to my hand so that I have very little pull on my hands. The bands were tied by PocketPredator using quick ties sold by PocketPredator. No sharp edges, fits in my average (small) hands.
