"Agile Toucan" inspired by Joerg's great design "Cougar", but my hands are very small to hold Cougar. So I started to design this to fit my hands also to use flats and tubes in mind. this was given to Dankung last JUL (2010), after many testing of them, revised it in DEC (2010) with major changes. Finally its available now.

Still my one is on the way, I'll update how it shoots after getting it.

I really like this design! I was looking for more information about it when I saw it on a Dankung distributors web site and also the Dangkung web site. Please post up some videos of it if you can. I have a Snody Blingshot and I like the way it feels in my hands, but I can't really put a lot of different band types with out a lot of modifications. This looks like it would do the trick! Great job!

Irfan -- that is a great design, something I would buy myself. The next time I can afford it, I will order that from Dankung. I haven't bought a new Dankung in about a year. I hope you'll keep reminding me.

I've actually had one of these for awhile now. I think I got it near the end of December 2010. It shoots great and fits my hand very nicely. I'm wondering if the one I got was in a prototype stage. Looks the same though and shoots fantastic.

best,
steve

Steve, Yes in DEC they made about 5 prototypes but I couldn't get any of those your lucky :) and there is no major changes between which you got and new ones.

The only difference I can see from the photo is mine does not have the dankung stamp. It's a great little shooter that fits so well in a pocket. I think this will be popular.

Steve
