    So another red opfs gone down . This is # 2 red tack 12 that has been blown up in my hands . Yes the 7/16 slamming into it helped lol. I do have a flex green opfs I’ll start using. This one u can see the shader pattern this is much better than hitting my hand !? That was the first frame hit in months . Operator error my mined was on the manboob project manager trying to rip me off again, just showing u all the fun stuff . This frame has did it job it got two quail,one squirrel , B072E4CF-64CD-46C1-8627-A2F4C9D639E8.jpeg 31AF868D-93C3-4518-B9B3-14BE021D02D2.jpeg

      Always sad to see a good frame down. Nice to not see your bloody hand!

      Looking at the picture of the loss limb, could you cut off the remaining fork, then cut a new band groove? Should still be a good shooter, just a little shorter.

      I see the blowout on the back side, but still would wonder what could be made from it?

      I had one go the same way Clint but I didn't fork hit it , just put a lot of shots though it broke after I had taken a shot luckily the tip of the fork just hung there [emoji17] was gutted their nice those Opfs with a bit of a belly .

      Once again showing the explosive nature of the pfs coupled with a moment of inattentive action.Gappers are more forgiving.

      Lol u set me up already got the green one and a beer colored one of that. Design And. Material . Lol this is why my good opfs are on the wall to look at . I shoot the ash opfs @richnewm gave me last year every time I think should grab the tack 12 shit not wood someday your gonna cry , I have a titanium opfs I use some times but ‘I’m good thanks though I shoot the nibbler more than the opfs ,I’ve had two red ones for some reason they both where golden in my hands ,as of late only thing I can hit with is bonegrip pfs,nibbler and opfs my gapers I’m off , that ok it’s summer now hunting mostly so the pfs’ s work great . I do need to spend more time on fundamentals in the Gallery then I’ll shoot my Gapper version again and get my mo-jo back. It was a solid hit full butterfly dont think anything but the titanium or an aluminum back OPFs could of come out unharmed ,hell I’ve been know to dent titanium lol . Love this style with heavy bands quick shooting , I use a lot lighter bands for gallery shooting . So thanks but maybe after I finish off these other two :) I need to make a gift for u ,heck I need to make something soon or u all arnt gonna let me on the homemade sight anymore. It’s about time to start the Xmas list and get my butt in gear

      Ya butt the look on someone’s face when u hit a jug 70 yards away with something that looks NOT like a slingshot ,and most think slings are Y shaped ,it makes a grown man a little boy again . And the fear of pain well is just some of the best part of shooting u do it right or I’m gonna slap some pain on u . Lol love it. As much as I shoot a few hits are expected . But I’m not shooting ttf ,lol if I want a hand hit I’ll just get a ttf frame .
      :)
