Hey Guys.

I don't think Bill Hays or Pocket Predator need any introduction.

I just wanted to say that this is absolutely a dream to shoot ergonomics wise and is so intuitive and accurate it kind of feels like cheating.

This is not a back pocket slingshot. While the profile is fairly compact this thing really fills the hand. I had never seen a picture that showed how thick it is (no obvious dirty jokes please:p).

Thanks Treefork for your video review. It was the deciding factor for me.

I was pleasently surprised by the thickness. It really spreads out the pressure, especially on the thumb.

Just got one myself and couldn't agree with you more, I find it incredibly accurate and comfortable to shoot.

I may have made a mistake on these.... it seems the Boyscout groups so far are going more for the TACHammer than this model... and Adult men, many are favoring this model instead...

That's because adult men don't need to overcompensate;). We know a good slingshot regardless of size

Hi inconvenience... Nice lookin' frame!  Can you please show a couple of pics of your hand holding the frame in a shooting position?  I'm curious how the thumb wraps around.  Fork width on outside? .... thanks

Bill. If you do change these please keep the "mistakes" as an option. While it isn't a pocket size frame, it is extremely ergonomic.

Good looking Slingshot. Looks like you could back a truck over that one and not scratch it.
