  • Unfortunate bands.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Good quality plastic and frame, sturdy,
    Rubber wrist rest doesn't seem like it will break right away,
    Four bands ups the power(see Cons),
    Looks good,
    Folds up well,
    Comfortable

    Cons:

    The supplied bands. One of them broke after ten shots, then another as I was looking it over. And that was after I spent over half an hour trying to get the little steel balls into them. They're thin, weak and low quality. Accuracy wasn't great with them either.
    You have to buy other bands to go with it which triples the overall price.
    It's extremely hard to get the balls into the bands.
    No instructions for people who can't figure out how to put it together.

    OtherThoughts:

    The steel balls are not ammo. They keep the bands in place.
    Buy other bands.
    It's unfortunate that I had to rate this slingshot lower. It's of good quality at a great price and doubles the power with four bands. But I have to judge based on just what comes in the package, not the quality or power of the replacement bands.
    The steel balls fit much more easily into normal sized bands.
    I'm getting annoyed with typing 'bands' so often.

    Bottomline:

    If you have other bands or don't mind buying more then grab this. But it is not acceptable as it is.
