The Boy Shot and the Micro Ranger are two of finest everyday carry slingshots you will ever shoot. the Boy Shot uses tubes and the Micro Ranger uses flat bands. I went to Pocket Predator.com to order a couple Boy Shots for Christmas. What I discovered was a new Peen finish on the slingshots. I can't wait to put a set of tubes on and shoot a can or two. The Boy Shot not shown here will have holes for tubes. image.jpeg

Hey Tag, I like those. I've always liked carrying the axiom champ. Never really thought about a little aluminum jobby. Gonna have to look into it. The sand blasting should make it real grippy? Right?

They are so easy to control unlike the larger slingshots. I like a slingshot where the fork height is close to my hand, that way I don't feel as much pressure as I pull back. Thanks for your reply lbojoe.

The Topshot is 3/4" thick but very small otherwise. Disappears in my slingshot pocket. Just got it yesterday and about to do review.

I've shot the Boy Shot for a couple of years now, they are truly amazing. I've tried to describe how the shorter height of the forks contribute to the the stability of the slingshot. It's like what we used to call choking up on a baseball bat so that you can control it better.

I agree inconvinience, 1/2 inch poly would be great. I put plasti dip on one, it turned out nice.

I received two of the best EDC pocketable slingshots ever!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't wait to see the Peen finish and it is awesome. There was also a nice set of tubes and a great pouch. I am not saying anything against any other slingshots, this one is perfect for.image.jpg image.jpeg

Wow. I'm really impressed. And I didn't even think about dipping or maybe even adding a thinif scale I needed a little bit more to grip. With that look I'd hate to cover it though.

I think you sold me on it.

Thanks Tom!

Pretty soon we'll be offering that finish, probably instead of the sandblasted one... I think it's just a little nicer
