    There is 1 slingshot I think everyone should have in there collection, and it's not a bonegrip you might be surprised to hear.

    It's the wasp uniphoxx, I've bought about 10 of these since they came out but given them all away in some way or another but I think they are brilliant, I've even gone as far to say as they are a modern day classic. Since my last purchase well over a year ago, wasp have developed quick change clips which I think are brilliant and they are what the original flip clip should have been, a metal insert not a plastic thread.

    So why do I love them? I will tell you

    reason 1 they are cheap, for £23 this was in my hand 2 days after I ordered it, the clips were an extra £5 but frame is £15 uk postage £3.

    2 its well made, durable and feels good in the hand there for you could shoot it all day.

    3 It comes in lots of colours even aluminium and g10 version although they start at £50 I would have got a g10 one if I hadn't just bought a bonegrip.

    4 wasp are a good company who give back to the uk slingshot scene so don't mind supporting that

    5 Simon, the owner, although I've never met him he knows my purchase history and after a few purchases he stated adding little freebies like the spinner and the pouches in the photograph, he even added a hand written message on my invoice saying thank you for another purchase. Full clarity I've only ever been given a spinner or pouches always payed full price for the frames but he knows I've given some away on here as prizes.

    So here are some pictures and if you want to win the pouches just say I'm in and I will pick a winner at random on Sunday evening.

      Just giving the pouches away pal, I won't use them so rather give them away, the uniphoxx is staying.

      You know, I'd probably get down with one of their g10 versions. it looks cozy enough, I'm just exorbitantly cheap, so I haven't bought anything but bands and some ammo in about two or three years. I don't really want to separate you from yours though, don't worry, some chum will score and that's fine by me .

      I'm to cheap to buy a g10 one as well after thinking about it I don't think I would ever buy anything else but the cheap ones. I can sort you one out one day but not this one lol.

      Thank you for your generosity Muz, but I'm not in. I have plenty of pouches. Thank you for the great review. I will definitely look into getting a uniphoxx once they get the icicle or the black stealth back in stock

      Worked out 11 people were in and did a random number generator and came up with 8. Counting down that makes @Zippy the winner. If anyone thinks I've miss counted or something else say now or forever hold your peice and zippy drop me a message and will sort out the delivery. Thanks everyone.

      I didn't see this first time around, where did you get the clips? There's a guy on Facebook doing them with fiber optics in. I might have a look at them since I've never used them.

      I got mine from Celtic Catty’s. I’ve seen Merions ones both are made with a 3D printer. one of my clips has cracked and the rivnut needed replacing on another, I admit I probably over tightened them .I would stick with the wasp metal ones probably workout cheaper in the long run, I am going to order mine next week.
