    Some time ago, Flipgun wanted to make the peroba brazilian oil finish trial, comparing it to the tru-oil.
    I've sent him the peroba oil and he sent me a package in return...about 2 months ago!
    It never came....we both thougth that it was lost......when suddenly....the mailman knocked at my door!!!
    It made me stop building and keep shooting until the end of the afternoon! I love this chubby handle shooters!!!!

    Wow, really nice slingshots. I can see the difference in the oil. And those are great looking shooters Flip! I should take a moment to mention that Flip and I did a little 'mini' trade recently. If you recall that yellow PVC PFS he made, well, he offered to send me some of that yellow PVC. That stuff is THICK. Can't wait until I get a little more time to work with it.

    I'm really enjoying watching all these trades. Can't wait for the Christmas trade coming soon!

    Very nice work! I particularly like the 'teardrop' look of the handles. Very sporty.

    I thank everyone for the kind words! I had thought them lost and when I read B.V.'s message that they had finally arrived I actually Cheered!

    I really like the matte finish of the Peroba oil, I've never been a huge fan of high gloss finishes. that said the tru-oil finish looks brilliant as well.
    You're a lucky guy BV, and flipgun you deserve ever accolade you receive for these.

    Awesome work Flip. Good that the package finally arrived. I am with Obl1v1Aus - I really like the silky matte finish with the peroba oil.

    Very nice Flipgun!! Nice way to compare the the different oils!

    I think the Tru-Oils shine is very nice, but the Peroba Oil brings out the colour of the ply in a very nice way.

    Great work flipgun. If I had to choose between the two I would take both (I'm indecisive like that)

    Thanx guys. I tried to make them as close to exactly alike as I could for a finish comparison.
