    How's it going? Here is my take on the infamous Alambre resortera..

    After studying various versions of this Resortera I finally felt enough courage to atleast an attempt at this resortera, I understand Nico spent a large number of years perfecting his method.

    I first made a prototype which was an absolute pain in the arse to use the forks were far to long thus causing to much leverage on the forks (also my wrists) after an afternoon walk with the mrs and some "test shooting" and have a girlfriend laughing at me.

    When we got home I made another (this one) this time the mrs gave me some advice, her words were don't keep overthinking just built it and see what happens.

    The materials used in the construction of this resortera were mostly free except for the chained bands and the pouch which is from a set of Barnett tubes. The two coat hangers used were given to me by a friend, the electriciaal insulation tape is from work. So I technically only paid about five pounds for a bag of elastic bands.

    Anyway enough waffle here is the Resortera.

      I'd say that's a good "Resortera de alambre" and if you want a Mexican boy advice, I would say, use the mooring of the pouch in forktips and mooring of forktips in the pouch, that way the end of the pouch will be lighter and surely your shots will be cleaner and faster :)
