Philly going 19/21 at 10 meters shooting the FlippinOut Omega
FlippinOut Limited Run Baltic Birch Multiplex- Omega
To say I was impressed by his workmanship would be an understatement. I had to have one, and after trying a few at the range in Alverton I was hooked.
They all feel great in the hand. Nathans work is flawless, the laminations seem to just flow together in harmony with the wood. Finish is smooth but compliments each species of wood used. I shot some again today with it and I was impressed with how quickly I was comfortable with it and shooting as accurately as I can with my favorite shooters. I can’t recommend his product enough, well thought out and executed designs by a craftsman that happens to be a world class shooter as well. I rate this slingshot an 11 on a scale of ten. Well done Nathan.
As some of you have seen the thread “LGD knuckle grip” you know that I shoot in an “unconventional” style. I made a natural and banded it in a manner that forced me to discover “my method” of shooting.
It was to me a blessing and a curse. The blessing was I found a fun way to shoot that was unique to me, the curse was it eliminated my options if I was to purchase a high quality slingshot. So I searched this forum and came across Nathan’s aka FLippinOUT for sale thread. His shooters looked nice, and even though they didn’t meet the criteria of my personal shooting preference, it was enough to give me a reason to ask if he would do a special custom slingshot that would put him out of bounds to what he normally does. He took me up on the challenge to make an “one off” that fit what I dreamed I needed.
Since this is a seller’s review I will mostly talk about my correspondence with him.
1) He displayed his eagerness to achieve my goal.
2) Kept the communication throughout the entire process.
3) Interpreted my descriptions, pictures, and preferences with no flaws.
4) Even though this wasn’t a type of slingshot he would use, he catered it to my needs
5) His process on the steps from start to finish in dealing with me as a customer was not only professional, but showed his love of the craft of making slingshots.
This thing is not only beautiful, but SOLID. Thank you Nathan for exceeding my expectations.
It fits my hand like my old Levi jeans fit my butt.
I bought one of Flippinout’s slingshots and immediately had to buy three others because the feel, fit and finish were so good. I feel these are Heirloom quality. The seams between the various exotic woods CANNOT be felt or discerned in any way. The wood itself is very beautifully grained, but tough, with 2 hard fork hits to prove it.
I have one custom made, according to 1:1 photocopies of my shooting hand and it fits like a glove. Nathan is the man. I sent him 4-5 pages of photocopies of my hand and told him my spec and he made a slinghot that fits me. Seems like it’s sucked into the hand when I reach for it. It’s the large palm swell that makes it much more comfy than any flat slingshot I’ve ever shot. Not only does it fill the palm, but also does it according to anatomical curves of the blade of the hand. This will be the only brand I buy.
That young man can work a piece of wood! A real Craftsman, excellent shooter and all around nice guy. I bought one of his gems. Love it!
I recently got a Roosevelt Custom Sling Shot from Flippinout and I must say this is a real custom piece and shoots as well as any sling shot I own right out of the box.
Whether you’re a target shooter, plinker, hunter or just want a museum quality piece to add to your collection, look no further than the Roosevelt [by FlippinOut].
I’m extremely HAPPY I purchased this slingshot! Nathan’s service was FAST, professional and a great price considering the quality of his work.
I have a Sumac Natural I also got from Nathan that I was going to include in this review but it is such a NICE sling shot on its own that it deserves a separate review for sure. Probably the MOST STUNNING sling shot I’ll ever own.
