I've got a Flippinout scout too, which imo is about the best value for money on the market. Nathan really put in the R&D here, it's intuitive , and allows a shooter pretty much and grip style, band setup, and is durably made- it's the slingshot i send people to buy when they ask what to buy when they 1st want to get into shooting.
ammo wise, stick with steel, or lead BBs. I mainly shoot 9.5mm steel BBS which will drop pretty much anything with a headshot. I'll move up to some 2 ply 20->15 mm tapered theraband gold and homecast 12mm lead ammo for bunnies, but the 9.5mm steel does the job too
tubular bands tend to be more resistant to abrasion ( in and out of pockets and bags etc) but have a higher draw weight- it's very VERY important to note that with slingshots a higher draw weight does not mean a better power output. thick tubular bands like the ones the Trumakrs come with hold a LOT more energy but this is only really worth while tapping if youre shooting incredibly heave (comedy level) ammo, upwards of 100g get on Google and look up the Chinese Dankung style tubes, far thinner and do the job
flat bands tend to be faster ( the rubber is thinner, and can contract faster) but need more care. I tend to use these on stuff I know I'm going to be taking out for a reason ( inc the Hayes Seal Sniper for plinking)
>>657213 Looked this guy up and like it. Then I found the baby linked below. I had one as a kid, probably got it 40 years ago. Mine was red. I'm so getting this for my son for his birthday. This and a bow. It's time he started archery, too.
>>657480 if I was shilling I'd be plugging that fat cunt Perry A+'s $65+ boardcut plywood frames, a $180 Jim Harris SPS, $90 on a Hays G10, $130 + Montie Gear or fuck knows how much money Snoddy Ti frame.
A guy has asked for an opinion of a reasonably priced, well made slingshot. An answer has been given. Just because you think $40 is over priced for a slingshot shows you know fuck all about them, and what the prices people regularly, and willingly pay for one.
I've given genuine feedback based on 5 years of regular hunting with a slingshot, the small green one was a bespoke piece, and to you lot works out at $30 ish. if you want a crappy, wrist rocket, keep on with your Trumarks if you want a well built, and developed tool then listen.
wrist rockets are cool as all hell with bearings or glass marbles. Mine is broken, dry rot in the tubing. Hopefully getting more next week. Can't ship to Massachusetts. Illegal to sell or manufacture BUT ironically due to a typo in Mass General Laws they are not illegal to own.Slung shots on the other hand are illegal to own in Mass.
A slungshot is a maritime tool consisting of a weight, or "shot," affixed to the end of a long cord often by being wound into the center of a knot called a "monkey's fist."
You can find certain tubings on amazon that allow shipment to mass. You can also ship ball bearings to mass so long as it says "bicycle ball bearings" and not ammunition.
Also I frequently take a slungbow with me when out running for defense against dogs. Just use a cow hitch to secure some rope to a padlock. Easily disassembled to comply with law.
It's legal to walk around with rope and padlocks in mass, tie them together and you're a criminal. You can own ball bearings for bikes but no other purpose apparently. LOL massachusetts logic. Gotta love it
>>660107 Yeah, I know there are ways around it but they take effort. I'd rather drive up to Maine which I'll be doing sometime over the next few weeks. Cabela's in Scarborough Kittery Trading Post maybe LL Bean in Freeport general road trip without a true destination kind of day.
