I grew up with a wrist braced Trumark, and Loved it!! As a matter of fact, My Dad still has his original one. (for probably pushing 40 years now) I recently bought a replacement model from Trumark, and honestly, that was the move that got me back into slingshots. I personally would never, ever downplay the effectiveness of these units. They are Great!! As far as hunting, I would be very comfortable running a Trumark. They are just so simple, and effective.
That is not to say that the non wrist braced slingshots are inferior... (I used to think so, before I became familiar with this forum) The slingshots that you will see on this forum are more than capable of dispatching a multitude of small game animals, and there is so much talent both with the vendors and the regular guys, that you cant go wrong. I have purchased products from these vendors, and can tell you that these units are top quality! I have also discovered that the flatbands can be much more effective than the tube set up you are used to... Is using a flatband set up more expensive than using tubes? If you are used to getting your supplies at the local department store, then Yes it will cost you more...No matter what device you choose to use...Practice is the key.
