I’ve ordered the scout lt from pro-shot last night.... anyone shot one? Any thoughts?

I’m not much more than a beginner really. I got quite reasonable with a ply catty a few years ago, but never carried on for some reason or another & thought this might be a good model to get me started again.

That’s good to hear. I was going to order the scout first, but then the lt caught my eye, plus I haven’t got the biggest of hands 😂

Slightly smaller I think with interchangeable palm Swales, recon he got fed up of the Chinese making them and selling them for £8 a pop so he changed the design a bit, but as you say a great catty and very easy to get good with ✌️

Well it came today. I set it up with the simple shot band set that came with it & they broke after less than a hundred shots!

That’s unusual right? Or have I done something wrong?

Of course I didn’t order a spare ☹️

Flat bands are pretty unreliable in as much as you can get 1000 shots out of one set and 10 out the next go on eBay and get a bunch o ready made ones or if your going to get serious better off buying a rotary cutter and a roll of elastic off eBay and make your own, I cross drilled one of my scouts and fitted looped tubes to it which works well for me and lasts ages 👍

Cheers greyman, I didn’t realise it was that hit & miss with bands. I’ll get on to it 👍
