New design pouch and frame, with super slick rotation bearings. The perennial problem with catapults is twisting op of the elastic. So these have a special attachment at the frame end which is designed to revolve freely and reduce such tangles to an absolute minimum.
We also recognised that pellet waggler feeding methods meant we had to produce a caty that was really tough and durable. The handle is ergonomically correct, fitting the hand perfectly and the best way to reduce elastic wear at this frame end is to have a straight attachment peg, protruding in the line of pull.
Similarly, the pouches are designed with constant, pellet feeding on mind, they are produced under strict moulding conditions from supertough polymer. There are four catapults in the range, two on the smaller frame, Aqua with Ultra soft elastic and Red with light elastic. Like the frame, rotation bearings and special cluster feed pouches which ensure tight spread of bait, the elastic on theses two models is a special polymer blend produced in our factories. As a result, the elastics are not subject to UV damage like the natural latex materials.
The Aqua and Red catys are ideal for the shorter range baiting and wonderfully accurate at pole distance. Two larger models in the range are the Green with strong latex and the Orange with Xstrong latex. Being a natural material, the latex has a limited life, but has unique punch, stretch and recovery which cannot be reproduced with synthetic materials. (At least, it can at the moment, but we
e working on it!!)
These models have many months in development, field testing and production and again, we believe the difference in quality of build in visible. Alan Scotthorne is very pleased that he can finally use them out in matches!
