Scroll on 30ish years, things seem to have evolved a bit and, there's some very nice cattys and, some very skilful people using them
I've got fond memories of going out with Grandad as a kid to help check his snares - he'd always have a catty with him. There'd usually be a couple of pigeons in his pocket by the time we got back.
I've recently bought a PPSG from Nath on here - he's a good chap and, this is a quality bit of kit - I like how it fits my hand so well.
Work has been very busy lately so, I've only recently had the chance to try it out.
Nath sent it with a couple of GZK bandsets - I think these are 20mm x 200mm. I found these to be right fiddly little buggers to tie to the forks but, I got there in the end.
I had a quick go with some 9.5mm bearings and 12mm lead in the back garden - nothing too clever, I just wanted to see how the catty felt to use.
...... beginners luck let me hit at a tennis ball at about 15yrds.
It did feel nice to use.
I'm comfortable holding it in my right hand, tilted to the side and, pulling the pouch back with my left hand.
With the GZK sets, I could draw back as far as my chin but, I felt that a draw to my ear would be more comfy so, I put in an order so that I could experiment ......
