    Hi guys.

    It's been just over a week now since I bought my first catty. A Gamekeeper Pocket Poacher. I have now decided though to buy a second catty and have seen the Wasp Wolf priced at £20.
    Do you think the wolf will be a decent budget price catty to try out different bands on?

    Thanks

    I've seen pretty good reviews on them, I have one in the mail somewhere.
    Good choice

    I think I agree with you. Everywhere I look online In all countries people praise the Uniphoxx. I don't think I've ever heard a bad thing said about It. The only decision for me to make now Is to choose what colour!

    Get the clips if they are in stock, I like the green but the translucent ones are cool.

    Thanks for the tip. I was actually thinking about buying the clips. And apparently the clips can also be used for OTT as well as TTF. We'll that's what I was told anyway. What's your opinion on the clips Mr Muz? Do they hold the bands securely? As a newbie to catapults I must confess that I find the wrap and tuck method a bit fiddly. So the clips would probably be a better option for me anyway ;)

    I think a newbie should learn wrap and tuck but yes the clips work both ott and ttf and are secure, just don't over tighten them I tighten them up until I feel resistance then a quarter turn, not slipped once. I've heard of 3d printed clips, not from wasp but another seller, that are not very strong.
