Hey Shane! Quick question… It seems you employ your Foam Core/Bead Board circle bounce often. Did you simply just hot glue the two materials together to create this bounce? Or do you have a specific way you build these? I certainly want to create one for my use! Thanks Shane!

      @t.moore HI T.moore, great question. We just use double stick tape to adhere the two together, like carpet tape. Then we surround the edges with 2" White gaffers tape. Some new insight on what I have been doing to switch things up and try new things, I have gotten rid of the foamcore side and added bleached muslin to the foamcore side and also I have made another bounce that is Silver Rosco Flex SS on one side and 10% Gray Muslin on the other side. This is great when you are filling peoples faces and you do not want so much punch, where they look lit and filled in, this gray works amazing.

      @t.moore Hi t. moore, you can also use Spray 77 to adhere the bounce material perfectly
