    Hi,<br><br>I have bought a Dankung Panter which is wraped by a roap at the handle. I am not sure if I should modify my handle with fimo:<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Staedtler-Fimo-8024-34-L2/dp/B000N6M9VY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1339962881&sr=8-2" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.co.uk/Staedtler-Fimo-8024-34-L2/dp/B000N6M9VY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1339962881&sr=8-2</a><br><br>I am afraid to mess something up and I would not get a second chance. Did anyone of you try to get the fimo of after it has been burned in?<br><br>the second point which conserns me is that I shoot hammer grip as well as finger support - so I am not sure about how to design the handle to make sure it is good for both shooting styles.

    I made two Moorhammer-like grip with Fimo! it´s a good stuff to made in short time a ergonic grip. but dont let you ss fall to the ground, it can broke.<br><br>i think you can easy remove it with a hammer, a few hard hits will do the job.

    I actually think that if you mix fimo with short nails and steel filings, it would be even more durable. <br><br>Yes, you can easily remove a fimo handle.

    OK,<br><br>I think I will try with pure Fimo first. If this would not be durable enough I'll think about an other solution.<br><br>Thanks a lot - I'll keep you posted<br><br>Cheers
