SAFETY FIRST!
The BEST Polycarbonate Safety Glasses



Click to enlarge

      Safety glasses I can actually use!

      For the longest time, it has been extremely difficult for me to wear safety glasses AND shoot accurately... You see, pretty much every pair I've ever tried has a fairly large (huge for me) paralax error... and so I basically just don't wear them because of that!
BUT NOW, I really don't have an excuse, other than laziness and apathy... because these glasses are so true to correct that I can wear them and completely forget about them... which I've done numerous times while working in the shop.

It's like these things were specifically designed for shooters... with no center bar to block vision when using traditional aiming technique, to the way they sort of wrap around to make an unbroken protective barrier even for your peripheral vision, to the way the top of the frame kind of blocks excessive light... If these weren't designed for shooters, they should have been!

So now, if I'm not wearing safety glasses and I get a bad ricochet or a band snaps in some mysterious way that it hits me in the eye... then whatever happens because of that will be ALL my fault... and the same goes for YOU now as well!
As close to Paralax free as possible, super strong, fog resistant, with an added "diamond coat" scratch resistant coating... and costing less than a cup of good coffee... WE don't have an excuse any longer...

We're serious about this, these really are the best we've found. After literally dozens of different glasses we've tried, these really are the only ones that do everything we want them to do... Fit perfect, perfect vision, supreme protection, and do it all for less than 1/10th the price I've paid for some glasses, at wholesale!
I'll tell you what, we really and truly do believe in safety... soooo, we're going to get these to you AT WHOLESALE COST... we won't make a dime off these and you can get the best Safety Glasses we've ever found!

Ammo for your Slingshot



     "Funniest" thing ever... Name Brand Slingshot Ammo... I mean, Seriously???!!!

You're probably like us and realize that 99.9% of all steel ball bearings come from China on container ships and are distributed to various companies that then turn around and mark them up and resell them to other companies that package and resell them again... all this making it more and more expensive with each step..
So instead of paying extra for expensive packaging, we buy it directly from the first distributor, put it in a bag in a box, don't put a silly brand name on it and give you more actual product for less money... I mean REALLY, it's all the same steel ball bearings, it all comes from China!
So, you could go to eBay, or any number of other places, and buy ammo for up to $9.95 per 100 rounds (sometimes even more), or you can get it here for a fraction of that... it's up to you!

We offer different sizes and types of ammo, all the way from biodegradable clay balls, to .50 caliber heavy hunting ball in both lead and steel to the very popular .44 caliber lead ammo all the way down to 5/16"(8mm) steel balls.

All lead ammo is suitable for target shooting or hunting. The larger the caliber the bigger the FPE potential and the bigger the potential game that can be taken. For example .44 caliber is good for squirrels and rabbits, and .36 caliber is good for sparrows to dove.

All lead is of the highest quality nothing from wheel weights or the like, and can be recycled... melted / remolded

Bandsets, pouches and bands


Pouches, pouches and more pouches!

      These are all made with premium Horween leather... arguably the highest quality leather you can buy.
We offer either smooth and or "football" pebble finished, in all the sizes and shapes shown below.
Note, the largest pouches can be used for big ammo, like rocks and big marbles... whereas the smallest pouches are tremendous with small ammo, all the way down to .177 bb size.
My personal favorite is the "F" style and size in the pebble finish... Shoots 3/8" - 1/2" steel and lead like a dream.

Pebble Finish Pouches
         
SMOOTH Finish Pouches


Specialty and heavier duty bandsets that we make.

     These are available in either Black Theraband or Gold Theraband. The black is more stretchy a little faster contracting but is about half the strength of the Gold. The Gold is good for shooting heavy ammo at good velocities and black is better at shooting light ammo at higher velocities.


Note we roll the ends in at the pouch connection for increased longevity.

Also, all bandsets that WE make are symmetrically tied, commonly called TTF tied, and come with a set of smart ties as well... And Yes, of course you can get whatever pouch you want with your bandset... just leave us a note and we'll custom make exactly what you want!

Chinese made bandsets



Very good quality band-sets from China:

          We are selling these more as a favor to those who prefer shooting more, and like making their own bandsets less...
When you calculate the amount of money latex, pouches and tying material cost, plus having to buy cutting boards, roller knives and templates... then add to that the time it takes to get everything out, set it up and make bands yourself and then if you make a mistake, the waste... well, most people will find it actually works out better to simply buy the pre-made bandsets and enjoy shooting instead of the hassle of having to do it yourself.


Now a little about these bandsets.... YES, they are made in China... but they're made from "Precise" brand latex, engineered specifically for slingshot use, instead of repurposed exercise bands, these are arguably the highest/best grade latex based bands you can get anywhere.... Far more UV and ozone resistant than our normal bands, these bandsets are also much better for shooting in varying temperatures as well. In fact we've measured the FPS on 95 degree days and compared it to days where the temperature only reached into the upper 30s and there's no more than 10 fps difference... which is far different than you get with medical grade latex or even Theraband.

What's more is, these bandsets are all die cut and use microfiber leather pouches, so they are extremely consistent from one to the next to next.
These bandsets are also all tapered for greater efficiency (20mm at the wider end tapering to 12mm and are 25cm long).
The thicker the bandset, the more powerful, greater draw weight it has... the 0.75mm thick will propel a 3/8" steel ball at well over 200 fps at a standard adult draw length (about 32 inches)... whereas at the same draw length the 0.55mm thick will propel the same 3/8" steel ball at around 180 fps... But, the 0.55mm thick is better and a lot easier for use with a kid's grip strength. So think of it that way... the 0.55 is more suited for a child's strength and the 0.75mm is more suited to an adult's strength potential... although the adult could use both or either for target shooting.

Now it's time to 'fess up a bit... These are the same type and brand bands used by us, ourselves, for daily shooting practice (we're human too, and like to shoot more and make bands less) and since they ARE so inexpensive and convenient to use... well why not??? and in point of fact and since we're confessing anyway... the .75mm thick is what Bill used to win the SEST and ECST (used our own made bands to win the MWST), Daranda uses the the .7mm, Ben and Heather use the .55mm... So yeah, now you really can use EXACTLY what we're using and they're definitely been competition tested as well!

Lastly, you're probably thinking we're making some pretty good money off of these... and the answer is NO WE ARE NOT. Like I said at the beginning... it's more of a FAVOR that we're selling at these prices. We've done the research to find which companies in China make the best bandsets and let me tell you... it's not the cheapest ones... it's one of the more expensive makers... but we think they're worth it, and that American shooters should be able to enjoy the benefits of these type of bands without being raked over the coals... In fact, if you were to contact the Chinese company yourself, it would cost about $15 plus shipping to get these same bandsets using authentic Precise latex and in the box like these.. Mind you, you can find plenty that are cheaper, and by "cheaper" that's exactly what they are, not as well made and from inferior materials...
So just give yourself a break and get what we use... the best we have found so far.

TAKE NOTE: The Chinese slingshot bandmakers tie the pouches to the bands two different ways... One way is side-tied and the other is symmetrically tied.... After a LOT of testing we've found that for OTT or TTF slingshots it really doesn't matter which way the bands are tied, both shoot to exacty the same mark.
You will receive whichever we get when they send them to us... OTT is more popular than TTF worldwide, so the side-tied bands will most likely be the ones you get... Just know, they shoot exactly to the same mark as the TTF on either a TTF or an OTT slingshot fork.... The good thing about doing it this way is YOU will save even more... because we buy larger quantities and pass the savings on to you!

        If you have been to a tournament and have seen a little girl running around there with a custom paracord bracelet making jig... offering to make a bracelet for you right then and there... then you've met my Daughter Heather.... these Paracord Bracelets are made by her and she gets all the proceeds as she starts saving up for a college account fund.

There are two types of bracelets available... an "economy" model and a "survival" model. The economy model is made from standard 550 lbs test weight, 7 strand, high quality paracord with whatever buckle she happens to have the most of...
Whereas the Survival model, well it actually could aid in a survival scenario... they are made from a special paracord known as "fire cord"... instead of 7 polymer strands inside like the standard... the "fire cord" contains a total of 9 strands consisting of 5 nylon, 1 mono-filament fishing line, 1 waterproof waxed jute "tinder" easy fire starting cord, 1 thin metal snare wire, and 1 mark line for trail marking, furthermore the nylon strands can be unravveled for everything from suturing to trapping to tripwire.... Also, the buckle on the Survival model is really useful too, it has a serrated scraper/blade, ferro rod for fire starting, and an emergency location whistle, all in a heavier duty frame.

Picture four shows how I attach a bracelet/lanyard to my slingshot... just a little piece of paracord through the lanyard hole and the bracelet runs through... Makes for a super safe and stable shooting platform.

Crystaline Latex string for tying pouches to latex:

          Hey, bandsets wear out... but usually you CAN use them again!
Since almost every bandset deteriorates at the pouch end... all you have to do is simply snip off right where it tore, and then retie. If done correctly, you can probably get three to five uses per bandset that way!
So, like it says in the title... use this stuff to tie your pouches to your latex bands... it's lighter and thinner than tubing or rubber bands, but still plenty strong enough to get the job done... the major benefits being that it doesn't cost much and because it's light, weight is reduced "by ever so much", and every little bit counts!

Predator Smart Clamps


Click to enlarge

      You may already own one of the most accurate slingshots ever made... all you need to do is attach the right bands!
You see, the old "bomb proof" metal rod frames are fine, it's the big obnoxious hard to shoot tubes and pouch that are the problem, that's what makes them so hard to shoot accurately and therefore obsolete for good shooters.... So we came up with the PERFECT solution for that!

In keeping with the whole slingshot philosphy of K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid)... we are proud to introduce the EASIEST, FASTEST, MOST SECURE, and just all around BEST way to attach flat bands, single tubes, looped tubes and rubber bands to a "big box" mass produced metal rod slingshot!
All you have to do is push the elastic tube, flat, or band through the clamp hole, slide the loaded clamp (elastic on opposite side of the rod from the set screw) onto the slingshot's rod and then tighten it down with the included hex key. Forward, backward, over the top, through the forks... just about any kind of elastic, in any kind of shooting presentation... they all work with this setup!

Made from high grade Stainless Steel, so they won't react with and cause band deterioration over time, like cheaper metals will... with your choice of an aiming groove or not...
Predator Smart Clamps allow you to turn that old slingshot that you never use, into something that can shoot with the best of the best in modern design!

When you buy with the wrist brace slingshot and if you request it, we'll take off the tubes that come with the slingshot and install the flat bandset, that comes with the clamps for your convenience (tubeset will be in the mailer box).
Just leave a note at checkout, or email: PocketPredator@aol.com

The Predator Smart Clamps can also be used with the old original Weber Slingbows or with any NEW design that YOU may come up with that simply has a 1/4" rod as the fork tip... Just think of the possibilities!

Premium G10 Lanyard Beads




      Premium G10 Lanyard Beads

      For years I've looked for suitable lanyard beads to go with our slingshots. And after much searching my Wife suggested that since I wasn't happy with any that I had found, that I should just make my own... So I practiced and worked at it, and after some time and effort I finally got to where I could carve a pretty decent skull. At first I used bone and moose antler, but after using G10 and it being so much harder and more resilient to damage, that's what I went with.

Anyway, I've looked around and I can't find any G10 skulls or even any other G10 lanyard beads being made by anybody else... and I can't find any skull beads that look as good as these either... The only problem is, it takes me several hours to make just one real nice skull bead... but I'm not an idiot so I found a way that we can make these very cool, high quality G10 lanyard beads available to just about anybody, who appreciates and wants to have the best.

To make it feasable economically so that people can actually afford these... what I did was, using the same concept as our slingshots... I hand made a "perfect" prototype and then simply had an intense and very thorough 3D laser scan done of it.. Then I bought and set up a custom CNC mill to carve out perfect copies made from G10... I've got to say, the machine does a really good job and with a little hand finshing at the end, the copies really are just as good if not better than the original.
Expensive and time consuming as it is, the end result speaks for itself and we're proud and happy to present this opportunity for others to get something this unique and cool.

Price Options

Note, these are true premium grade lanyard beads... Even using the tireless CNC mill it takes several hours to make each one... but the mill can work 24/7 though, which means we can make up to 10 a day if I monitor and get optimal material change outs... That being said, it might take a day or two if we're backed up on orders. But we will get it out to you just as soon as possible regardless.

 

 










Pocket PredatorPro Attachment Systems

Pocket PredatorPro Attachment System


      How to use the Aiming Plates      

        If you have a difficult time attaching bands with our "Smart Ties", then this system will probably be the thing for you.
Finally, a truly simple, secure and extremely strong way to attach adult strength flatbands to a slingshot.... inspiration came from the system used on many golf carts to secure the golf club bags while driving on bumpy terrain.... The PredatorPro Attachment system uses very old and time proven technology...
You won't have to rely on a tiny, maybe 1/8" piece of the band end, hoping it's secure after tightening down a plastic or metal compression clamp with a screwdriver... instead you can use a far safer and more sensible approach, looping the latex band through a custom made titanium buckle, tightening, and then letting it pull against itself!

We don't believe in "over-kill" when it comes to safety... So our system utilizes a titanium buckle clamp to secure the bands to the forks... Yes, only the highest quality you can get, it's literally a TITANIUM faceplate that we have custom made for this purpose and select top quality hardware to secure the bands to the frame.
With this and if you use the thumbnut or thumbscrew options, you don't need to carry a screwdriver just so you can tighten or loosen a plastic compression clamp or metal sideplate to change out your bands or tubes.... But we do offer that option as well, just in case you want a flatter form, or in the case your fingers lack the strength and or dexterity to hand tighten.

        Another feature of this design is it allows for infinite adjustability so a person can customize their bandset to exactly the right feel. No need to cut and waste material... whether you shoot with an anchor point or just pull back to where it feels right, you can start with the bands having a long slack length and then cinch them up, adjusting the pull weight and length to your comfort and power needs... then if you think you've cinched it up maybe a little to much.. you can simply let a little out again.
This feature is also good for those who like to reuse band material... simply mount longer than needed bands, cinch up to your desired pull... and then when your bands start to break.. let some band out and retie the pouch. Makes it easy to conserve rubber in an away from home situation.

        There are eight options available.

Option #1 is a pair of the titanium faceplates, a pair of stainless steel internal mount rivet type nuts, and a pair of either black anodized 6061 aircraft thumbscrews or brass, depending on which we have on hand. This will fit 1/2" - 3/4" thick frames and is the most convenient of the three for most people. Snug hole size required for the rivet nut is 19/64", which means it can fit 5/16" (20/64")- 3/8" holes as well.

Option #2 , the pair of titanium faceplates, a pair of 1" long 10-32 UNF flat head stainless steel screws black oxidized or shiny, and two 10-32 stainless steel or brass knurled thumb nuts. This one fits up to 3/4" thick frames. For considerably thinner frames it may be necessary to shorten the screw for aesthetic purposes.

Option #3 is the titanium faceplates, a pair of 1" long flat head stainless screws (black or shiny), and two stainless rivet nuts for internal mounting. Unlike the other two options, this one does require a hex driver to loosen or tighten... But since the screw is flat headed and the rivet is internal, it is also the lowest profile. This setup will fit frames that are 1/2" - 1" thick.

Option #4 , a single Titanium aiming plate

Option #5 , two 10-32 internal nuts for polycarbonate... thread onto a 10-32 screw, use a press to insert into a 5/16" hole... extremely strong and attractive solution

Option #6 , a Titanium aiming plate, a regular plate, two 10-32 thumbscrews and two internal nuts for polycarbonate

Option #7 , two regular titanium plates, two 10-32 thumbscrews and two internal nuts for polycarbonate

Option #8 , two 8-32 well nuts that fit the 5/16" holes on the slingshot forktips.

*A few things to note regarding the PredatorPro Attachments:
The titanium faceplate measures 1.22" wide X 0.68" tall. It's slots are 1.05" wide X 0.08 tall. The hole is designed for a 10-32 sized screw.
In pull strain testing, 100 lbs. was suspended from a single faceplate without making it unuseful for it's intended purpose.

So long as the slingshot has a large enough area for the faceplate to abut, and the material the slingshot is made from can be safely drilled without giving up structural integrity/stability, this will most likely be an excellent attachment system for you.
The original Hathcock Target Sniper in ballistic resin is not recommended to use this attachment system. There is a steel reinforcement directly under where the hole would need to be drilled. By drilling through that it very well could adversely affect the overall structural integrity of the fork tip.

The slingshots that we sell that will work well with the PredatorPro attachments are:
all the polycarbonate slingshots that have a Universal Fork, and all the G10 models other than the TTF only BoyScout models.
As always, use good common sense before drilling into any slingshot... "measure twice and drill once".

MUST READ
Obligatory Warning:

Slingshots and slingshot shooting is dangerous. About the safest thing you can do with a slingshot is to leave it unbanded, store it in your closet, occasionally take it out to admire it and then put it back up.
However, if you do decide to actually use your slingshot then following these numbered rules will help to keep you safer, although there is nothing specified or implied that will guarantee you will be safe even if you do follow these rules...

Rule number one, make sure you're an adult or you are using the slingshot only under close adult supervision. All the same safety rules that are commonly associated with the use of a firearm are applicable.

Rule number two, ALWAYS check your band set, pouch and connections to make sure they are all in perfect working order. If there is even the smallest imperfection change out your band set to one that has no cuts, tears, holes or other problems. Then stress check your attachments to make sure there is no slippage or other undesired movement.

Rule number three, ALWAYS wear safety glasses. Slingshots use rubber and or natural latex compounds... Due to naturally occurring variances, there are NO guarantees either specified or implied about how long a band set will last before failure... no one can tell you how long a band set will last before it breaks... and they ALL fail at some point. SO always be safe, if you're going to shoot with a slingshot, wear safety glasses and always check your band sets and attachments before EVERY shot. If it is not perfect, put a new one on.

Rule number four, NEVER aim your slingshot at someone or something that you do not want killed or destroyed. Slingshots are capable of inflicting serious injury or even death with even the "lightest" of band and ammo setups. Treat slingshots the same way you would treat a loaded gun.

Rule number five, before EVERY shot make sure there is no damage to your slingshot itself. If there is any damage including but not limited to: cracks, dents, scrapes, breaks, or any other signs of damage, DO NOT use the slingshot without thorough testing being done by a competent professional first... and even after testing always use the slingshot in a cautious manner.

Rule number six, you are shooting at your own risk. We already recommended the safest course of action is to keep the slingshot on a shelf in your closet and to never use it... if you do decide to shoot even after we recommend differently... then refer to rules number 1 - 5 as reference for a possible safer way to accomplish that.
