Yesterday my Agile Toucan arrived. I took it downstairs and shot with it for a while and once I took the typically too-short tubes off and replaced them with some 17-45's and one of Irfan's nice pouches, I was amazed and flabbergasted with the sheer excellence of this design. I had a target that was only the top ring of a soda can dangling from a string at ten yards away. First 3 shots: bam! bam! bam!

After that I settled in hitting about every other shot, which is very unusual for me with a target that's only about 3 inches in diameter.

The size is just perfect -- not too big, not too small.

The grip is superior to anything else I can think of... and I have many many slingshots. It is just great in the hand!

Aside from my usual gripe about too-short bands, I am delighted with this purchase. I haven't tried flatbands on it yet, but I can just tell I won't be disappointed. This is just a perfect design. I would recommend it to all who want to try a Dankung -- especially to beginners who want to experiment between flats and tubes.

Irfan, I salute you. You designed one of the best slingshots I've ever used.

... Oh and by the way, I took about 50 more shot with it today -- awesome!

Not yet, Irfan. But I will soon. Like I said above, though, I already know it's going to be great because this is a perfect slingshot!

Ihave tried using band set which Imade that similar to HC loop type hunter band, it is hit hard with 1/2" bb just like hunter did.

but I found the ring on Toucan were too small copmared to couger, you might try to narrow down the flat to have nice fit.

Thanks....

BTW, according to dankung the fork tip is 24mm\2.4 cm is that right?

Just want to know, as 24mm is big enough for 25-20mm tapered flats!

I was originally designed 20mm but I think they may changed it prototypes but final product is 20mm fork width

Thanks for your reply. Is the final product 24mm at fork tip?

If it is 20mm then I might as well go for a cougar. I sent an email to Dankung yesterday for a quote. :S

Erlkonig: what is the dimension on yours?

Here's the setup I'm shooting with now. Some off-brand flats doubled and tapered from 3/4 inches to 1/2 inch. With one of Irfan's pouches. :wub:

I am using the same tube setup that came with my flatcat. It works real well. I don't remember what Jack called it, but I am converting all my Dankung style slingshots to it.

I have setups in the 17/45, 20/40 and 20/50. I prefer the 20/40 on the Toucan 9" from the front loop tie.
