Guru Incredipult. Best catapult I've ever used. You have to be careful or it will rap your knuckles though.

This season I've been using an old Middy semi-hard [steady lads!] cup catapult intended for groundbait, and been very pleased with it. I get much better 'grouping' with it than with pouch-type catapults that I've used in the past.

Korum one did not last me very long i have been using a unbranded one for last couple of years purchased from a local tackle shop, classed as a carp catty, good sized cup and sturdy tie clips holding the elastic to the frame.

Trouble with them the elastics perrish, I have mine in the shed in a draw and it still happens over time .

Catty elastic is actually rubber and rubber loses its oils over time and becomes brittle, even if left in a draw unused. Actually using the catapult exercises the rubber and handling it transfers oils from our hands. But we can do more to maintain it. A thin smear of rubber grease every month would be ideal, but a light oil of any description will help.
