Big shot versus Stein Tekichu throw bag launcher attachment

Recommended Posts

Hi Nigel, thanks for your reply. This thread prompted me to bring out the Tekichu today. I've only used it a few times as the work big shot gets the most use.


I have to say I was disappointed. Considering it's use, the pins that the arms lock into have broken meaning that the arms float freely. The basket that holds the throw bag is flimsy and lets the bag fall out before release. The rubber is significantly weaker than the Jameson too meaning a lot less power. Every time you fire it the rubber comes off the arm.


I'm frustrated enough to bin it and buy the Big Shot. I appreciate that you've tried to improve on the competition for all industries but when I called it over complicated it seems I was right.


I'm not Stein bashing here. I use and rate a lot off your products, and generally have a lot of respect for Stein as a company it's just a shame that this product is unfortunately not fit for purpose.


I'd be happy to send photos.

Hi John, during 2016 the Tekichu design was changed slightly to address the issues you have encountered. We took on board constructive feedback from end-users and addressed these points accordingly.
