Today I am shooting a slingshot I found at the dollar store. It is a small plastic frame I found in the tool section (it was the only one there so I figure it was a happy coincidence that someone left it there) definitely originally a kids toy!

I wrapped most of the frame in some old weird purple Chinese "theraband" to make it easier to hold and banded it with a small pouch and Dankung 1842 with 13 inches active length. Just to be safe I added a lanyard in case I lost my grip.

This thing shoots like a champ sending 3/8 steel down range with enough power to put holes in a soda can at 5 meters.

All in all a very cheap and fun catty!

I too really enjoy the axiom design. I really like the palm swell you added to yours seems like it would add to the comfort for sure.

I am shooting into my garage with my G10 BB shooter from Rayshot at this moment with 5/16 ammo. I am getting used to TTF and giving it a week. I am shooting much more accurately than OTT, which I have preferred. Thank you for asking .

Nice lanyard setup, never seen one like that.

Since I hurt my thumb in a motorcycle accident two years ago I can only shoot one SS without pain. Big Dan designed and built this one for me. I love it and while I miss shooting a variety of forks ( I have a few) I happy to be able to shoot pain free.
That is a very neat design and I am glad that you were able to find a way to keep on shooting :)

After a motorcycle accident two years ago I could not shoot a regal SS so, Big Dan designed and built this great shooter for me.

That is a very trick piece of hardware. "Adapt and overcome" looks nice too :)

Found this frame just laying around lol. Seriously though I found 2 Youtube videos by 2 different shooters (Volp and Noah Ray thanks guys) and they explained frameless shooting well enough for me to finally sort it out. Though the 3 rd shot was a return to sender, a 1/4 inch steely hit me in the left ear of all places. Did not hurt so much as shock. I think the 2040 tubes I am using just over powered the shot and caused the RTS. So I switched to 3/8 steel and put a good 15 rounds down range with no more incidents. I am working on consistent form and dialing in the accuracy, and above all having fun :) well not the RTS I can do with out them.

Been lucky lately and received some nice slingshots and took them out to the range today. They all look and shoot super nice.

From left to right: one from gabeb, two from devil's son in law and one from razamatazzberry (sorry if I misspelled that handle)

All four of them just work, they all obviously look great too but they also shoot so nice.

Finally got to shoot my Wasp Delta Wing today, very nice. Got it banded with 3/4 straight cut simpleshot black, Performance Catapults pouch (love these pouches). Was shooting 3/8 steel at cans in my catch box. I was curious and did a timed can cut, 9 minutes and 3 seconds. Fair for the first time. Want to try it with 7/16 and 1/2 inch ammo, see how it affects my time.

I personally like the Delta Wing better that the Uniphoxx. It is a bit larger and fits my hand well, it is also easy to aim and just feels good.

Took two to the range today.

Number 1 is a Flipinout slingshot's Axiom Flipkung wearing 1632 looped tubes.

Number 2 is a Trumark wrist rocket refitted with 3060 tubes.

Both of the slingshot were easy to shoot well, especially the Flipkung, it just feels so nice in the hand.

I gotta learn to stage my pictures better... but anyway this is a picture of my baby. This is hands down my favorite shooter. Had to switch out the worn black paracord for something a little snazzier. :)

I like the scout, I have 1 first gen and 3 second gens and now the aluminium version set up various ways. The poly ones are nice and will do everything you need a scout to do. But the ally one is like a refined and polished version, it still launches ammo down range but it does it oh so nicely :) I was on the fence about the purchase of the aluminium scout for a while but I am glad I bought it. The smoothness and weight feel super great in the hand. It's not for everyone but I do like it.

Will be on this for the next few days... Ally-Scout with Precise 0.65 rubber and a Roo Warrior Apache Pouch. Everything is awesome though the rubber just feels kinda stiff.

5.75" 1745 singles with 16mm marbles.
Neat setup, I have a frame like that in the mail on its way to me now. If I may ask, where did you get the plugs / stoppers from? Thanks :)
