    Talking with my friend BV on FB this morning I touched my aiming method with the PFS closely related to the "virtual spot" I've shown before. I decided to explain it in a video, of course as anything in slingshots requires a lot of practice, I hope that my bad English speaking understandable ...

    Thank you for the video. I would also love to see an instructional video on how much to tilt the PFS to avoid hand slaps.

    Hello Jeremy, hand slaps are avoided by using the correct rubber cut for ammo weight and you will see I flip the wrist outside, that's helps a lot too ...

    Thanks rock slinger, yes it seems common sense, LOL some "trainers" on SSF told me that "this way wasn't correct" when I explained there, argued that champs use the fork reference and fixed anchor and not butterfly so I ended saying them "could be, but not being a competitor this is the way I like" LOL ...

    Indeed, it complements our conversation! Perspective seems much more compreensive for me. Remembers me watching painting classes of my mom....she always asked me to draw perspective for her....:D
    Thank you very much, Mr.Arturo!

    Thank you for info Arturo! I admit I had to watch it twice because the face in you catchbox starting at 10 seconds was messing with my head.

    It's always a good day when a new video on PFS shooting is posted by Arturo. Great job once again Arturo. And, your English is just fine, by the way. As someone who has only recently begun to study another language, I can really appreciate those who already speak more than one.

    Saw your video on YouTube before I found your thread here. I have been gaining new found respect for tiny frames now that I see them in action. Hitting myself in the hand (not with a PFS) with a rock really made me approach testing new frames with trepidation. Pain is a great teacher! I am sure you have saved a lot of people from giving up on the PFS...I tried for days to shoot until I saw the tilted pouch diagram. Then like magic I was hitting the catch box.

    I actually use a fix anchor. Righ in front of my nose. And how can it be incorrect when you present it in a video? Silly people, always looking to disprove others that is the last straw I quit that forum.

    J I need to make a Pfs but I can't find any good 3 cm or 2cm massive hardwoods with nice grains such as American nut wood or oak.... Etc

    Well, I didn't took to seriously that time but seemed intolerance and bulling continued over a long time and I've quit there, not a pleasant environment to stay, indeed there are many fine people (and friends made) I know specially among the builders ...

    using 3 PFS frames, even slight differences trying to aim strictly by fork reference maybe would not be so easy to switch ... projection stays almost the same, even changing release ...
