I don't know what kind of bizzare rituals the Hayes family engage in, but the Topshot is supernaturally accurate. I think I saw a guide for selling one's soul for accuracy in the box, but I'll have to check again when I get home.
I just got it yesterday. I'm not normally a fan of pinky holes but like everything else ergonomic, Bill just knows how to do it right.
My very first shot was dead center in a can from 40'. I didn't even really try as I didn't think I was seriously going to hit it. The aiming point for me is dead on. Slightly different than the OttRanger, but even more accurate for me.
It already feels like I've been shooting this thing for months. And I can't stop gripping it.
Like the Ranger, the polycarbonate is warm and almost organic feeling rather than "plasticky." It's fairly heavy for it's size, but in a good way.
The frame is tiny and disappears in a pocket, but feels like a full size frame as far as comfort and stress.
I don't really use tube holes, and may fill those in with Sugru. And I think Bill could go ahead and use 1" instead of 3/4" bands for the ones that come pre-banded. That's basically the only negatives for me about this slingshot. Which are basically none.
I hope to make some videos soon.
