    This is another variation for the "turn and tweak" technique I use for PFS butterfly sideways, also can be used with any OTT full frame, and of course be safe of fork/hand hits ...

    thanks Be, it is a good shooter (at least for my style) very accurate and consistent I tuned for my "lazy grip", bamboo is an awesome material you will not regret ...

    Thanks for sharing A.
    Question: Are the shorter bands( third vid) faster than longer bands( butterfly)?
    I always thought that butterfly shooting style was faster.

    butterfly is faster, 20 cm TBG at 5.5 elongation (short bands video maximum pull) around 70m/s and 30cm latex at 4.3 elongation (sound video) around 80m/s
    so butterfly even with less elongation in this case is 12% faster than shorter bands, in hot days I've recorded around 100m/s butterfly with 10mm steel ...
    Cheers

    Great looking ODD. I'll have to give that shooting style a try also.
