    In the shadow of the newest Simple Shot PFS frame, a worked out a swap with Mr. Muz to slip a couple over to him. In return, he offered to send me a couple of Wasps. I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I opened the mail box (and that my wife didn't open the mail box!) to find a triple wrapped box of goodness from our good brother over on the big island.

    I had requested a Wasp FTC and Stinger. I already have all the PFS frames from Wasp, so thought about trying the new FTC and have seen some good shooting with the Stinger. To my surprise, Muz sent me a sweet Hydra with an aluminum core and some type of phenolic handle scales. Also he included some sugar with Wasp pouches and spinner, a pouch tying jig, and most important the JuJu antler bone bead tied to the FTC!

    Quickly banded and made some test shots. Sorry not enough time at the moment for any can shredding, or bulls eye bragging. I can say that the FTC was a bit more constant than the Stinger. I put looped 1632 tubes on the Hydra and even though I don't have a lot of confidence in shooting tubes, I had no trouble hitting a 60mm spinner from 10 meters.

    Thank you Mr Muz for getting everything and big thank you for the extras! Can you fill us in on the Hydra details? I don't think you made it, but always fun to know its history.

      Thanks everyone! Totally agree with all regarding how well Muz takes care of us all. Nothing but great surprises and goodness. Always a great inspiration and quick to offer help to anyone.

      I’m hoping tomorrow’s weather is good for shooting, I have a lot of new slings to enjoy!

      Hi Monroe, glad it got there safely, unfortunately I'm unsure of the hydra's origins I know it's not an original and could do with a polish up or you could strip it for the core, all I know is it's not my cup of tea. I was really impressed with FTC and will definitely be getting one for myself when I feel the need for a new frame. I'm also unsure of where the lanyard bead came from, it was on a frame that I got from Martin Whippet a few years back but pretty sure he didn't think he made it. I've mixed feelings about the dankung jig, I think it's a great idea just to small and awkward for my fat fingers. Anyway glad it got there safely and have fun with it all.

      Regards

      Phill.

      Thank you Muz for the info and slingmail. I agree that the FTC is probably a better shooter than the Stinger, but both were pretty good in my 1st test shots. If the rain holds off today, I might be able to get in some real shooting after work time.

      The hydra frame is good as is! Actually fits well in my hand and was doing better than I expected with the looped tubes. I got in trouble for suggesting to polish up my brass PFS from Island Made Catapults. Apparently the age patina adds to the frames mojo and improves accuracy.
