'hunter' Custom Catapult.

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

Mine arrived yesterday, i can happily confirm the power of them. Whoever buys one won't be dissapointed. If i can get accurate this will probably become more of a hunting tool than my air rifle. Same capabilities, easily carried, no paranoid passers by on the phone to the law about the terrorist looking fella in the woods with a gun. Happy days :D

Good job Fish

:lmao: :lmao:

Grouping is around 5 inches at 15 yards so far after maybe 50 shots. . I'll tighten that up to 3" tomorrow( hopefully) then move back 5 yards etc.

First time i have ever used a catty really. Few mess about shots here and there with mates, but thats it. All with stones.:D

I was round the Ratbags' earlier and saw the green catty, that theraband gold has some power! I have some blue stuff form my physio sessions in the Army, but Gold is something else! I had a quick dry fire and there isn't any slap back off the pouch, I reckon lead shot will fly off like nobody's business!

I'm going to do a test/mini review on the catty if you don't mind fish. I'm planning on putting 10 shots through a chronograph to find out how fast those shot fly and the average power (ft/lbs) it generates. Also a penetration test at varying distances through a number of layers of thin board.

Whats would be classed as a good grouping in catty shooting, at different distances, ie, group at 15 yards , 20, 25 etc?

Hi Fish. I'm interested in these fine-looking tools of yours as I'm curious to explore an alternative to an air rifle for some hunting. At the risk of sounding completely naive, are they easy to aim? Is it just a case of lining up the target with the top of the 'prongs' and letting it have it? I'm sure this is something I would happily discover and improve if (when!) I buy one but woudl appreciate your thoughts as I'm a complete catapault virgin. Cheers!

Hi All, Mr Fish,

I don't know if I'm doing the right thing here, but I ordered one of these catapults through mr fish's website over a week ago, and paid via paypal.

Now this is mostly because I'm very nervous about paying by paypal, but I have pm'd sir fish on this site, and also messaged him through his own website to check he got the order. I have had no reply.

I'm hoping that, being a small cottage industry, that this is just the way he works, and I'll find a brown hunter laying on my door mat when I get home one day. Having said that, I do need to check that my £22.50 have actually gone to the right place.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks

Adam
