Yo Wasp Be Gone in Green Hornet Spectraply

Here Yo go, another great shooter:

IMG_0276.JPG IMG_0287.JPG
IMG_0281.JPG IMG_0284.JPG

This was a prototype, and it is already spoken for.....but I can make more! It is the same as the poly WBG but 7/8 thick. Forks are 1.5 wide. Future WSB forks will not be this thick I don't think.
I have found that for most shooters who have tried the WBG, shoot smaller ammo (1/4 - 5/16) with OTT tubes best. Larger ammo seems to shoot better with the banded OTT version.

Spectraply and Poly versions are now avilable, and are going out the door fast. PM me for details.

More to come stay tuned images.jpg

Thanks guys for the kind words!
Hey I thought I would include a picture or two of the wasps these shooters were first designed to "hunt," the Tarantula Hawks, a.k.a., Pepsis Wasps:
TarantulaHawk-large3-550x420.jpg Pepsis mexicana6.JPG

I was blown away when I looked these up on the internet...we have nothing like this where I live. However, my customer says he has a regular "season" when these things fly around. Shooting them with 1/4 bb's must be a blast! I hope he joins in and tells us more about this. I understand this wasp has the most painful sting of anything known to man!.....CRAZY!

Cool, go get em pal with the Wasp Be Gone!!! bugs-hawkwaspcolwb.jpg

No it isn't. The bullet ant wins most painful sting.

You win! A quick google search shows the rather subjective "Schmidt pain scale" to confirm your statement:

Animal: Bullet ant
Schmidt Index: 4.0+
Description: Pure, intense, brilliant pain. Like fire-walking over flaming charcoal with a 3-inch rusty nail grinding into your heel.

Animal: Tarantula hawk
Schmidt Index: 4.0
Description: Blinding, fierce, shockingly electric. A running hair drier has been dropped into your bubble bath.

Hows that for a rather pictruesque pain discription ;(

I think I'll pass on either one of them. I'm gonna have to have a Wasp Be Gone just in case I ever come across one.

I just hope he kills them with one clean shot, I'd hate to tick one of those off.

The finish is buffed wax (several types). It takes some time to do, but it turns out great. Thanks for asking.

So just different types of wax rubbed on over time?  If you have a chance could you link just one or two types of waxes for wood like spectraply?
