    Are black flexible PFF and a camo semi flexible PFS both Bone Grip
    Big learning curve for me I bought me one of them dart fishing gloves with the anticipation of smacking my thumb I was really afraid of these but after shooting the black one yesterday yes I’m still afraid of them not nearly as bad now but until I learn the technique ,the release , but I do think it feels like a great instinctive shooter
    Now I see the lure of the PFS that’s fun

    Lol my Texas cattle dog
    Three-quarter healer and 1/4 Australian Shepherd
    Most of them have a coloring of a blue healer
    Yeah he’s all healer baby good dog just looks like an Australian Shepherd sorta
    And he does help when I shoot a marble at something he goes and actually chases it down and sometimes brings one back if you go look where he hangs out you can find two or three
    In fact kind of a pain in the ass because when you shoot it something you can only do it once because then he runs over there Best buddy in old man could have though at least I know if I fall down I get hurt I will get licked to death
    This is one time I’m kind a hoping it snows like hell for about two weeks right don’t have to work then you know what I would be doing

    Try Arturos pre turned pouch set up, that's how I shoot pfs I find it really helps. If you can't find it I will look on YouTube for the video.

    Don't watch how he uses an angle grinder as a saw in his other videos, that's scary as hell!

    When you are new at the pickles everything just feels wrong and when you pull back it looks like you are aiming at your hand doesn't it that why i say they are tools from Satan's work shop those little thumb banging knuckle crackers have left me with more wounds,if i wanted to get hurt while trying to enjoy myself i would play rugby on ice without a helmet;):rotfl::rotfl:

    It does feel sketchy at first but it will fall into place . It’s a lot of fun once u get the hang of it

    Ya my hold on the pouch sucked I went to a pinch type and and no fork hits starting to stretch my draw more
    No I’m alabout the way it feels in hand just would like to keep said hand
    I still haven’t tryed the smi flex camo yet
    Think I’m going to set it up with the light bands
    For now lol this weekend I’m on the Red white and blue wide and this flexible PFS
    That’s all my small brain can handle

    Do you shoot with an anchor or extended draw? Personally I can’t shoot a PFS with an anchor, I have to shoot extended draw.

    Working on extended floating anchor don’t know how far I’ll go out yet but I want it to be an instinctive field shooter so I want to go far and powerful
    Just starting to get out past my shoulder With the pfs
    It’s all new so I figured I would try to start out butterfly and work my way in
    But it looks like I’m working my way out which is fine I haven’t done a lot of reading on it yet just trial and air ,I don’t get to watch videos all the time but I can read stuff and I’m just venturing into butterfly extended shooting because I’ve never had a PFS also extending my wide fork drawl length
    I likie

    My personal advice, take it for what you will, is start with light ammo (like the Wasp practice ammo) and don’t worry about accuracy yet. Work on the mechanics of shooting extended draw. Fundamentals first, the accuracy.

    Last two time out no hand slap adjusted my pinch
    Ammo choose is for hunting so 3/8 or
    Double odd buck don’t think I will go up to .357
    But small 30 cal below 75 gr. I think I like the 52 grain .33 cal lead
    I got this
    It’s all coming together
    Great slingshots good friends good knowledgeable people to rely on easy Peezy

    Thanks for sharing the video Muz, first time seeing this! Never thought to attach the bands for a pre-turned pouch! I'm gonna try it!

    No worries, as I've said before all the information is out there lol. It works for me, I even shoot normal ott frames this way if if shooting butterfly but without tweaking the pouch.
