Ever felt like you needed a third hand when tying your own bands? This adjustable jig is just the ticket! Check out the video for more information.
I think the idea is a 10/10 but I think execution is a 3/10. All of the parts in the tensioning lever mechanism and very loose and the rivets are barely holding it together. The nuts should be wing nuts to tighten by hand instead of requiring a wrench. It works just fine but I would rather pay more money for a better quality version of the product.
If you are making several bad sets at one sitting the base of the jig needs to be clamped down or mounted on a board - the C channel base is not stable as it is too narrow.
The wormanship is rather shotty - the rivets that hold the cam and handle in place are really cheaply made. Better quality rivets would remove the play in the mechanism.
Apparently the receiver for the adjustment bolt is only partially tapped - the bolt will only screw in about 2/3 - a problem if you are using a stretched pouch.
It is somewhat tedious to have to clamp the band with the included hemostat then place it behind the yoke to stretch the band - a spring clamp would work better.
A good idea and it more or less does what it is designed to do - but lacking in fit / finish gets it 3 stars.
This jig makes tying bands very easy and comfortable to use.... I actually look forward to making bandsets
Every time i research "how to be a better shooter" i hear the word " consistency" . Consistent anchor, consistent band size, consistent tie down.. This is absolutely true, i own about 10 slingshot and ive never seen cleaner and consistent band to pouch tie downs until now. The Jig pull is the same every single time and the end result looks and performs better than ever. Re-tied all my slingshots with this Jig. The Jig is solid, easy to use, adjustable , light weight and very affordable. A+++. Great work Simple Shot Team!!
