    I recently found a video on youtube, in which a guy shoots without any frame!

    A forkhit would really suck!

    Only watched the first 5 mins but that is some fine shooting!

    Dgui does it very well. His style is crazier, he holds his hand flat. I tried it with flats and foil balls, no longer interested;).

    that's a shooting variant many PFS's guys do, bareback shooting ... I also shoot butterfly bareback, that's the best proof that "turn & tweak" really works to avoid fork/hand hits !

    All those years of shooting slingshots with the pouch held vertically and I never had a fork hit or even a hand hit.

    But if this idea of holding the pouch horizontally, decreases the chance of hand hits to the point of not even needing a frame then I will adopt it into my shooting style. i will definitely try it next time I shoot.

    Also nice to know that in a survival situation, I can take small game with only a small length of elastic and an improvised pouch.

    This is called " Hi-Pie" (shanghai style) in China.

    You could lost a thumb on this style shooting.

    The close thing on this is PFS fork in western world, the best guyis Dugi(pfs shooter).
