Please PM for pricing and details. I am still working through the prototyping phase and the units going out now are made to order and are what you would consider cosmetic 2nds. THey are fully functional.
Once I have the materials and production process refined I will likely build an inventory and set a retail price.
Oh yeah, I just got the chills. I believe that would be mine in the video?
I was hoping it would shoot above the 100' mark, but to see it go 150' with that 12oz bag, unbelievable.
Nick it's been GREAT working with you guys, thank you for keeping me updated during the birthing process of my new 64 Special. I've been tracking it, so it will be here any day now, and I'll be sure to put it to good use!
Thanks Nick! The 64 Special arrived, it's everything I've dreamed of. Just a couple of shots posted here so you get the idea. Pumped it up shortly after it came in, no problem with the air compressor I have, and fired off a few rounds before dark -so happy to see smoke pouring out of the barrel!LOL It went 180 feet up a Pine no problem with a 10 oz canvas bag. It's not as loud as you would think and it holds a charge just fine.
Getting a rope installed in a tree is so important for me. It helps to save energy, I'm more comfortable being tied in as I work my way up to the top ect. This gives me another option to work with when I need to get big distance with those tough shots. Where I have found it most useful is when I am able to stand quite a distance from the tree, I can pump the thing up to 140 psi and lob the bag into the upper canopy, shooting 200 ft of line- pull rope up, tie one end off and climb the other. Only downside is my 200ft rope is too short, gotta go with the 300.
This thing is well made, heavy duty, and seems really durable - damn near idiot proof. I love it
I have been using one of Nick's APTA line setters. It is the model 85 which is just a long, straight design. For my use, this style works great as I can store it in with my pole saws and other long tools.
These tools are great fun to use and are a viable alternative to the Bigshot. Very rugged and easy-to-store but the big thing is that they can really send a throw bag high with good accuracy.
