Left hand is my slingshot hand. Thumb brace has been my preferred grip. Decades ago damaged the connective structure around the left hand thumb. Shooting more than normal at indoor basement range. It's winter cold up here, covid 19 isolation, retired. All allowing more shooting time. Thumb discomfort flare up. Not "healing". To the point where I stopped shooting thumb brace grip and converted over to hammer grip. Thinking my thumb brace grip shooting days are over. Anyone else develop thumb issues from "overuse"? Guessing personally it is due to past injury and old age catching up.
The good. Another reason to purchase another slingshot Never liked the feel in hand of Hammer XT. But do like the Hammer LT head. The relatively shallow and narrow fork gap. The Scout XT feels better in the hand, but the wide fork is a negative. Having too much time at hand I googled around. Discovered the PocketPredator Tarus. Ergonomically it looks to be what I've been looking for. TTF shooter. One in route.
