    Had a package today all the way from Texas:).Bill Hays spotted a forum thread of mine concerning shooting TTF.Asked me to mail him,asked me a few questions,hand size,bands I use and a few others.
    Well to cut a long story short,this arrived today.
    Bill will not accept any payment for this stunning slingshot,he has gifted it to me.From what I can tell,it might be carbon reinforced G10?
    Banded her up and shot a few targets to get used to it.It fits like a glove Bill,and shoots really well,I love it.
    What can I say?
    Thank you Bill,I will not forget this,and the slingshot will be shot and enjoyed daily,plenty of videos to come.

    I sent Bill several different examples of 3-D printed slingshots, because of his interest in 3-D printing and also a "print one for a kid" program for his Boy Scout model. Whoa--lo and behold a bunch of gifts show up in a box on my doorstep!

    Included in the box were two custom versions of the TTF Sideshooter series and I love them. (One is aluminum and the other is GPO3 with the PPro Titanium attachment system.)

    Your gift looks like a TTF Sideshooter with the addition of a wider grip for the inclusion of a pinkie hole. I think that design feature really makes sense. Enjoy!

    You can get some seriously wide flatbands on these babies!

    I'm always impressed when a constructive and supportive relationship emerges. Glad to see your results and your way with slingshots. Bill is a great guy to deal with :)

    Keep your eyes on target,
    Cheers,
