At least your not going to give up like most people, keep at it and maybe you will be hooked like me! Good way to fix it! Best wishes to the slingshot to work brand new!

thats why i started out with peas.even with peas i started out flipping, than once i became comfortable, no flip and began twisting, once i felt comfortable flattop and flatstrap shooters, it has been a small time of patience and a larger time of smiling once you get over the hump.

Nice job on the pinning! Do the other side now just for good measure? :)
My first shot with a PFS was my hand and I was in pain.

my hand was well out the way, which is probably why I didn't concentrate on twisting the pouch lol

Hang in there! Good save on that frame ... it is too pretty to just junk it. Advice of others is good ... start with non-destructive ammo. I also started with an aluminum pfs frame, which was pretty well indestructable. Maybe save that pretty frame until you get the hang of shooting the pfs.

Cheers ....... Charles

was all excited to shoot it and grabbed some marbles as they seemed better than steels... will find some training ammo tomorrow, moltesers perhaps lol
when i got my fork hits with the peas they left a very small indent but shattered on impact with the ss

Do you mind me asking what it is you use to tie the bands to the fork? I see a few use that stuff and I'm not sure
what it is? Thanks.
