    Brazilviking had a thread regarding Tru-Oil-V-OIleo de Peroba and inquired if anyone would be interested in trying some? Hell Yeah! Me! I'm always lookin' for the new thing. He say Okay and sent me a package. Now I was expecting a small package with just a bottle of the finish in it. Shoulda known better coz that ain't the Slingshot way! Looka here what he send me.
    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]
    2 bottles of the peroba oil, 3 sets of 2 of the surgical steel that he uses for his own projects and a KILLER amount of Gamma irradiated latex (13/14 feet X 4"). He speaks well of it in the included note and mentioned that our Brother Arturo does also. You can't beat recommendations like that. The ball is in my court now and I have to come up with something Good! (No Pressure!)

    Big Thanx Raul! Lets see what I can do.

    A very generous gift from Brazilviking!
    Now you have a big enough supply to make dozens of amazing slingshots. :)
    We hope to see them soon.

    Unfortunately that is not one of the toys that Lady Flipgun has allowed me to buy. Maybe Christmas!

    Awesome package flipgun ... Brazilviking is very generous, a nice supportive fellow ! ... the gamma radiated latex is very good, it elongates less than the pure latex but it lasts more than the TBG, and using the appropriate dimensions for your ammo are a blast ! enjoy !
    Cheers

    I wanted to send a slingshot made by me as well, but there was no free time for working....
    But I just feel very excited with the idea of global trading, gifts, exchanges....etc it makes this social network looks like real world. That's why I don't visit the facebook frequently. It seems too unreal. people pretending to be something else. this forum has som emagic on itself, that atracts good and honest people mostly.

    I'm open to exchanges, contacts, co-op projects and everything else. I just don't have a lot of free time, so it might be a little slow... (slower now, with my pirate/odin's look):)

    I use single band 23 mm x 17mm x 32cm length (x5 elongation) for 10mm ammo (4 grams) 1/2" is quite heavier maybe will need 2 band per side, for 5/8 I never used such big ammo ???? ...

    Be sure, whatever you will make - if you give your best and put your passion in it -
    IT IS WORTHY OF TRADEING !

    flipgun, maybe this can give you an idea on the speed of BV latex with 10mm steel (the cut I've posted earlier), it's a 100+m/s average velocity, in my opinion best or better as my best TBG setup [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wqPXaOBPBU[/ame]
    Cheers
