    A gift from @Peter Recuas, first of all thank you so much my friend !!!
    It is an awesome frame, very comfortable and fits nicely in my hand, pictures and videos explains it better

    he also added 3mts of 0.5mm band sheet, the cut I did was not the best, also explain that in the videos

    a few more shoots to cut the can

    My take on the Spring Breaker is a GREAT, BEAUTIFUL AND NICE FRAME to Shoot !!! :tu::tu::tu:
    sorry for the long post but Peter deserves it
    Un abrazo Pedro

      Arturo, my friend, what a joy that finally arrived after 9 months (more than 8 in the Mexican customs, sorry) but since there is no deadline that is not met or date that is not arrived, on this day I have received this great news, that latex works plinking 8mm steel but with one of your natural latex bandsets it will surely make your shots buzz.
      Receive a hug along with these little token of my admiration.
      Thanks for your Friendship.
      Peter :)

      thanks Clint, I guess Santa will arrive soon maybe a week after leaving the Custom depot

      Thank you Sir, glad you liked !

      yes Peter, the rubber feels much like latex, I need to tune my cuts to the 7/16" steel I use, it is twice heavier than 8mm, I realized when felt the light pull that my cut wasn't optimal but your nice design made it easy to overcome. Look I have gather many frames along these years and every one has a special meaning, that is friendship and I am very happy to add your gift to the list of all my friends, the Guava Spring Breaker is a beautiful design and feel so well in my hand, take for granted I will shoot it a lot :D
      Thank for your support and friendship
      Arturo

      Awesome sling and an amazing good friend!
      Hard to believe that it took 9 months.
      The smile on your face tells the whole story!
