He's got a camo Jungle Hunter with some looped 1745's that I cut. We've just got back from walking the dogs and had a plinking session with some 10mm steel. It pissed down all the time and we didn't see anything to hunt.

They're only cheap really, if you get them direct from Dankung. I ordered a Toucan last week. That was from a vendor here though and it cost £38.
I like the Axe Hunter which is about £17 from Dankung. There's a few nice designs and, being stainless steel, they are pretty much indestructible. I only shoot Chinese tubes with mine. I like how fast they shoot with steel.

They aren't for everyone. I've taken a decent amount of game with mine. I use 1745 tubes. I feed my ferrets on ferals, woodies and pheasants that I shoot.

I'm going to use these tubes for the foreseeable with different types of ammo and see how I get on.

Like kranky said its a camo jungle hunter, shoots sweet and fast! I seem to shoot alot better with these tubes than the tbg but time will tell.

Unforunately it was cans, stumps and dead leaf shooting as there wasnt much about. But good to get the dogs out and have a shoot.

I didnt trust the speed of the bands to be honest untill i shot the ones kranky cut me and they do live up to what he said.

Looks decent enough mate :thumbs: ....

Kind if defeats the purpose of it being camo.... 95% of its covered up :laugh: ...

Is that paracord gutted?....

And i take it.... the castration bands are covering the slits...to stop the tubes popping out?

;)

Haha this is how i recived it from kranky, i like it tho, makes it feel better in the hand.

Gutted paracord? I have no idea what you mean? Haha

Yeah the bands are there for exactly that reason, i think that the chances of that happening is very slight but hey, its a good idea anyway :)

I do belive krankys new one turned up today?? Im sure he will be on soon to tell you all about it :)

Gutted paracord.... is paracord...with the inner strands taken out.... leaves the outter nylon....which is a lot flatter....

Looks like it is :thumbs: ....

You think them castration bands would hold the flats on my catty kranky?....

Could save on the tying pish ;)
