So after watching a lot of Joergs Videos i decided that it was time to get into the Slingshot-Sport again and decided to get myself a Scout instead of a Rambone because it seemed to be the more versatile of both. So i ordered a green Scout, 9&12mm Steel and .445 lead-balls including a dual-TBG-Bandset for the heavier ammo. So i started with the included 0.30 latex the Scout came with and it was pretty ok although weak until i realized i had to cut it so that it fitted my 31" draw, after that it worked fine but the 9mm ammo didnt have that punch i was looking for so i upped to 12mm Steel and the first shot was directly a forkhit that busted the front-facing part of my flipcap into a million pieces, after that i was really depressed as the corner of the slingshot a a pretty nice dent and the flipcap was atleast partly broken or so i thought... i just kept using the flipcap without the frontpart and to this day i didn't notice a difference, other than the fact that i had to cut the screw a few mm so that it didn't look out of the back of the flipcap. So after this i went back to 9mm ammo and everything was fine and then i switched back to 12mm and forkhit, forkhit and another forkhit... it was really depressing and so i skipped the 12mm steel and switched to 12mm lead which interestingly behaved complettly different and i had maybe 1 forkhit in about 100shots, and it just deformed instead of denting the slingshot which in my book is a big PRO. Sadly the Latex-Band had developed a hole near the pouch so that i had to switch to the 2xTBG which not only power-wise weren't meant for 9mm ammo but even the pouch itself had to big a hole to fit a 9mm without slipping so that i had to decide to use 12mm Steel or Lead, so i stayed with lead and kept practicing. Suddently the yarn holding pouch and TBG got lose and i had to re-tie as i wasn't too happy of not being able to use 9mm ammo anymore i thought that if i had to retie one side i might as well switch the pouch complettly and use the default-pouch the Scout came with. And well, i switched it (thanks Mr.Hayes again for is simple to understand tutorial) and also switched to TTF(Outside the Forks?) and i am stunished, as not only is it a lot more accurate but i hadn't had a single forkhit nor handslap with any of the ammo i have laying around here, but i will have to buy more Theraband Gold as this bandset is also slowling developing a hole in the center of the band near the pouch that might fork out for another 20-50Shots before it tears complettly. Long story short, here are some Questions! 1) As mentioned above the front-Part of the Flipcap broke on one side, is there a reason not to keep using it without it anymore? 2) As i mentioned i switched the pouch from the Scout-Latex Bandset onto the Dual-TBG Bandset and would like to know if there is any reason not to do so? I noticed that it doesn't look as nicely folded as with the original pouch. 3) Where i'm from it is legal to hunt small-game (rabbits, grey squirrels etc.) and therefore i would like to know which bandset and what kind of ammo would be the best for the task. Out of the ammo i now own i'am thinking about 12mm Lead or M8-Hexnuts filled with solder (the medium-sized ones about as large as a 9mm Steel Ball), while the 12mm Lead has a massive punch with my Dual-TBG it has not that much penetration (doesnt penetrate through a steel-can buttom) whereas the solder-filled hexnuts although obviously smaller go through a hard steel can without much afford and leave scary holes behind Heavy Punch vs Scary Holes? I also thought about bigger hexnuts in the size of a regular 12mm leadball but am afraid of even thinking of getting a forkhit with that kind of ammo as it would result in a devastating result on the fork and/or my face/hand) 4) As i have to buy more Theraband anyways i would like to know how many bandsets i get out (lets say duals @ 31" draw) of 2meters of Theraband Gold, and if it would make sense to order Theraband Black too, as i've heard that those a the preferred hunting-bands for many out there. Thank you kindly for your help!
