I have had one for almost 9 years and have shot it quite a bit. I think that the forks are a tad narrow, but it shoots well. You can make you own bands for it, but be careful about the rubber hardness. I recommend no more than 2 bands per side of .030 pure fresh latex. I would not use any other rubber on it including Thera-Band because of the variance in hardness of them. After I had had 2 thickness of latex on mine for a couple of years, the clips would no longer hold a single band of .030 latex, so when I shoot a single band set I shim or fold the end. All of Saunders flat band slingshots have this minor problem. The Saunders slingshot that I shoot the best is the Falcon II. The clips do offer fast band change and adjustment on the Saunders flat band slingshots. My LB2000 and LA2000  band sets use use Saunders patented band configuration. Here is a video I made years ago of me shooting a WRP. -- Tex

I have a WRP and shoot pretty well with it. I don't shoot it all that often because it won't fit in my pocket (even though I do most of my shooting in the back yard...) but I enjoy it for a change of pace.

If you get one you'll probably struggle with it at first but keep at it. You'll find it to be a super stable platform for shooting.

I have one, I find it to be accurate and stable. I would shoot it more but as MJ said it is a bit bulky and I live in a no wristbrace state.

Saunders archery makes weird slingshots. I have the Hawk model and like it, but its still weird. The WRP is even weirder. I have triple Theraband gold bands with a leather pouch on my hawk. The clips hold it fine but I modified the way the bands are placed. Saunders pouches are an abomination. And forget about putting any Saunders in your back pocket, even the Hawk. If you want funky...get the WRP.

At least they're not illegal to possess like in NJ. I still cannot believe the arrogance of NJ legislators. The Founding Fathers would have spit on them.

I have one. I like Saunders stuff. But I like shooting the Falcon 2 a bit more than the WRP.
