Well, technically it’s a prototype of the Platyball — it’s pretty close, but still not a final shipping version ( Their Kickstarter.com campaign ends in six days, so I wanted to get in this field report before the price kicks up to retail).

I know a lot of you already know what a Platyball is (if not, click here), but for those of you wondering what it’s like actually shooting with one, I got a chance this past week (up to that point, I had seen the prototype and held it, but never actually go to use one).

In the video below I share the pros and cons after getting a chance to shoot with it out in the field. Check it out:

I hope you found that helpful.
