      Dgui, great to see you on the forum and hope you are doing well. I'm sure there is a good feeling to see PFS has finally made it's mark in the production of manufactured slingshots.

      Nathan has done well with this Flipping Pickle and it does feel and shoot well. I am sure it will be around a while and very likely to be the entry into PFS for many people.

      Mine came in the mail yesterday and made quick work to band it up and cut a can moments after the mailman delivered it. I am a long band shooter, but inspired by your videos. I greatly appreciate the quick draw and aerial feats that you have brought to our hobby.

      It looks very similar to a swopfs but with a longer handle.

      Got one Tuesday. It pretty nice. Simular ergonomics to the larger axium ocularis. Not bad at all, especially for 20 bucks!

      Holy Bean Cans! It's wonderful to see from you, @Dgui .

      You don't know it, but this video right hear likely saved my slinging and sent me to the Darkside... uh, I mean PFS shooting.

      I shoot the second way. Likely because it's stronger and I have a better release that way. Thanks, by the way.

      I have the green Flippin Pickle and set it up like you, same draw length and snappy shooting, with one exception. I use very short tabs with my tubes.

      Thank you Monroe I'm hoping that I can do it all over again I just need more recovery work in time yeah I'm so glad to see that Nathan Masters has taken this opportunity to make the opfs the PFS at is available to all these fellows that want you to try it and added to their collection and since it is small and an easy carry they can sport it around anywhere they go which is very nice glad to see it out there now.
