TTF to PFS shooting tips

Mar 30, 2021

I’d like to shoot a PFS but only shoot TTF. Help!

If I’m shooting through the forks, how would you recommend transitioning to shooting a pickle fork slingshot?

So as we all know and as we say all the time, shooting any TTF slingshot requires a clean release. Probably the number one thing we would recommend to a shooter is to make sure they have a squeaky clean release when shooting through the forks!

The number one thing to avoid is what we called a speed bump effect, when the release causes the projectile to bump up over the lower finger.
However, when shooting a pickle fork slingshot, we encourage you to do this all “wrong.” The speedbump is the safest way to get the projectile to come up over the pickle fork and avoid forkhits.

The slight bending of the pouch allows the projectile to come up over the finger and up over the fork to avoid for kids when shooting a pickle fork slingshot.

And what does a cracker have to do with all this? Well, attaching a cracker to your pickle fork is a fantastic way to show where your projectile is traveling over the fork. A successful shot fired from a pickle fork slingshot will not even show on the cracker that you attached to your slingshot.

Finish this video all the way to the end to see Nathan demonstrate a bull’s-eye at 10 yards with a pickle fork slingshot with a Ritz cracker strap to it.

So when it comes to shooting a pickle fork slingshot, a clean release is out the window. You actually want to employ the speed-bump effect to make sure that your projectile flies up over the forks and you avoid fork hits.

We’ll be releasing these weekly all season long, and season two is coming to a close! You can look forward to more questions coming your way. Make sure you subscribe and ring the bell for notifications!
