    Just received pictures of my new catty from a chap in Vietnam (PVS Catapults) who just built it for me.
    Aluminium Core, brass liners and pins G10 with fibre optic sight, 110mm fork width.
    Looks an absolute beauty, all for £130.00 inc Postage.

    Can't wait to get my hands on it.

      Dude makes some great looking frames just gets a lot of hate on FB for making other people’s designs. Nice frame.

      Thankyou

      I have been practicing yesterday on my Scout which I can use both left and right handed; if found that I was having more shots on target drawing with my right hand which I normally hold my frame, a bit of research and I realised this is because I am right eye dominant; when I hold frame in my right hand and draw with my left I have to tilt my head somewhat to sight in which is uncomfortable.
      I tried shooting intuitive and had moderate success, this I will be practicing on a regular basis from now on.
      I wish I had known this before ordering as I would have ordered left hand frame.
      I will see how I go with it

      I'm right eye dominant also, your dominant eye makes a big difference if your using the bands to sight down. Can you contact the seller and explain your situation, maybe he will let you swap it for the other hand.

      I agree, I had slingshot when I was younger and as I am right handed so it felt natural to hold fork in right hand so when I got back into it that was what I naturally did, I can shoot that way but have to tilt my head to sight in.
      Holding fork in left hand feels awkward too as I don't have strength or stability compared to right hand.
      I wish I was left eye dominant.
      As catapult was built to order and I only raised the issue once it was ready to post, he couldn't do anything; I will see how I go with it and if not happy I will sell it and get a left hander built. I am going to work on intuitive shooting as that's how I did when I was a kid and I was brilliant back then, I spent 6 weeks summer holidays with it glued to my hand

      Just received my new G10 aluminium core Pegasus and I am devastated..
      It is absolutely beautiful, looks and feels amazing and craftsmanship is second to none, like it was built by a jeweller.

      I am devastated as I realised I should have ordered a left hand frame due to being right eye dominant, I will be getting straight back in touch with the guy who built it to order same build but left hander.

      If anyone interested, £130.00 plus P&P UK buyers only
