    Hey Slingers!



    This Week, i got something in the mail...and oh boy...i´m still cheering.



    A while ago Btoon asked me for my mailing-adress and wanted to send me a Slingshot just out of pure kindness.

    I could not accept that offer and during that communication we talked about pinning.

    So i mailed him some tools and materials for pinning. A few days ago his "revenge" arrived...and holy moly was i not ready for that!

    He mailed me nothing less then the Caudal Fin Chalice i once nominated for the SSOTM.

    Such a fantastic design. Very unique and so comfortable to hold. She is smaller then i imagined from the Pictures and so perfectly pocketable, exactly what i like. She feels like silk, very smooth finish and is perfectly balanced.



    But that´s not all. He also included a collection of rubber for band and pouch attachment, a double TBB Bandset and one pouch from each of the best known pouchmakers around here. A formed pouch from Flatband, one from E~Shot, one from Rayshot and a selfmade one for BB´s made from Kangaroo Leather!

    That´s so cool, i always wanted to try those and now i got a hole collection. Immediately installed the double TBB with the laminated Super-Sure pouch.

    Took some testshoots from around 8-9 Meters while i was out taking pictures and they really rock!



    Thank you once again my Friend! I will always keep her save, as i said, i´m really in love with that shooter.

    Hope you like the Pictures, cheers, AnTrAxX

    This slingshot is just...perfect.
    Btoon is a great guy. I already saw a lot of his work and it's always awesome.
    I hope that a forkhit will never happen to you, my friend. :)
