The mark on the head wasn't me haha it was a neck/spine shot. The lurcher decided to retrieve it! When i say retrieve what i mean is, she bit its head and pulled out feathers ha

marbles where the best ammo when i used the catapult but that was years ago lol.i had and still have the old milbre catty with the square rubbers.reading on here i see things have changed a lot.what set up would i need now to get the best out of a catty.i just want one i can slip in my pocket while i,m out walking the dog.i have read tbg is very good but would it do for my old milbro frame.or where would i buy dankung from.

cheers richard

you can fit a tbg bandset to your milbro and i,m sure if you do a search on youtube it,ll show you how

i would try this first because you are used to the milbro frame,

then if you catch the slingshot disease you could buy/make a frame that is evenbetter at getting the best out of the tbg .

milbro,s still have a great following and those who use them are very good but i prefer a bit more width between the forks for better accuracy, but thats just me.

atb and good luck

Use it anyway you like mate...

 

But im sure double would be reccomended....

 

I was out wth whipbed today...havin a few shots at bottles etc...

 

He had the 1842's...the 2050's.... and i had the 1745's....

 

The 1842 seemed a little light... and the 2050's...definitley more powerful.... BUT.. one hell of a sore arm after 3-4 shots...

 

The 1745's looped seem to be the best out of the three...

 

Im going to have a try with 8 starnd...so double loops each side... see how that goes..

 

Im impressed by the little 1745's so far ;)

I use single 1745 on a little holly frame that I have. I've killed few ferals with it and killed a cock pheasant with a M 8 nut when Rascal_2005 and I were out with the hounds. The pheasant was only knocked out and somehow it found its way into the Whips flat above the kennels!!

I've got a 8 band set here. It takes a lot of pulling, lots more than double TBG. I don't bother with it. Double 1745 does the job.

Just wanted to give it a go... if you dont try it... youll never know ;) ...

 

I do like the doubles though.

I only made mine the other week. They go well but not well enough for me to justify the weight of pull.

I think 8 strand 1842 might work though.
