    Hello Slingshot Community friends!!!!
    FINALLY the so long awaited frame from Matt Neyman (YSYEO Slingshots) arrived at my home!!
    My original intention was to do a video-review of it but my camera microphone didn't cooperate and I'll have to wait some more time until the replacement parts arrive (everything is SO SLOW these days, as you must have been aware).
    Anyway, here's some pictures of it in my country, Portugal!! Tested it today and it is a FANTASTIC frame!! The ergonomics of it are really a WORK OF ART!!! Never the phrase "melts in my hand" was so accurately used with this slingshot!! Makes aiming a lot more comfortable and proficient with this thumb/index brace grip (I think it is called "pinch grip"). The materials used in this slingshot are HIGH END quality, all worked with an AMAZING craftsmanship level. The synthetic front plate combines with the oak, used in a most unusual and original way. It's really a UNIQUE piece, so well thought and executed!!
    One of the most surprising features, to me, was the bands attachment method. I must say that, at first, I was a tad suspicious of its security, since I use quite a bit of a rubber pull force, for 5 grams ammo. But, after some hundreds of shots today, I realized that the bands didn't BUDGED AT ALL!!!! Absolutely RELIABLE!! I'm really very SATISFIED with this functional attachment method, which permits a quick change of bands in the field. Actually, it seems even more secure than the tuck'n'wrap classic method, with rubber strips, since it doesn't allows any band slippage whatsoever.
    Here's a link describing Matt's attachment technique:


    My second part of this thread will be a video review of this JEWEL!!! I hope I can make it soon.
    To Matthew, my SINCERE THANKS AND GRATITUDE for such an EXQUISITE GIFT!!!! My friend, you'll hear about me pretty soon, you can bet on that!!
    Hope you folks like it!!

      I’m so glad it finally got there. Also I’m very happy that you like it. This is the first full ergo version of the Fugetaboutit frame. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pics!

      Q, congratulations on the Ergo FUG, it truly is beautiful and beyond functional! The binding post screw band attachment is amazing. I have copied the idea on several of my builds. Matt is an awesome builder. Sure the trade excitement went both ways!

      My dear friend Matt!!
      THANK YOU (or should I say "Thank YSYEO" :) ) for your AMAZING gift!!
      I'm still in AWE with this frame. The level of craftsmanship and functionality of it are just TOP LEVEL!!
      Didn't know it was called "Fugetaboutit" :D Are you a fan of the "Donnie Brasco" movie?? LOL!!
      I'm just waiting for some replacement parts on my microphone to start filming some can-busting! First review in line will be the "Fugetaboutit"
      Best regards ...Q

      I don’t remember if I ever said why a named this frame the Fugetaboutit or not. The reason was that the pinky ring made me think about the mafia and wise guys that wore those rings. And Fugetaboutit was something funny they said.
