  1. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    The Smo Show convinced me of my outdated thinking. Just placed an order for a roll of Snipersling .6 latex. I'm sure you've all seen Smo's Slingshot Latex Shoot-out: This is really great work. Back to the Snipersling, it looks like it will outperform TBG in every capacity?

    Sometimes after about a hundred shots the band ends near the pouch start to twist and point outwards. I tend to see this with thicker bands above 0.55. Is this a result of not tying the bands tight enough? I am using a constrictor knot.
  3. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    I’m finally switching to a better band. I’ve been shooting tbg for 4 years and just got some simple shot black .5. Any suggestions for a hunting taper for 9.5 steel. I have a 27inch draw.

    Hey Folks, I just started learning to shoot slingshot. I am now planning to cut my own bands. I plan to buy 0.7mm SIMPLESHOT PREMIUM LATEX SHEET for target shooting, cut to a 20mm to 15mm taper, around 300% elongation when shooting. And since I'm new, I'm shooting beer cans at around 13 yards...

    I switched over to Precise anti-cold for the winter but I don't see any improvement in performance. I will start keeping a one of those medical hot/cold packs heated up in my pocket to get the bands up to temperature instead. One other option I thought I could use is a mini rubber hot water...

    I have tried a few different ways of pulling the bands back since i stated this hobby and have watched countless videos of others. I have now settled on my method but I wonder, as I line everything up there are minor adjustments I make while pulling the bands/pouch back. It may be a small twist...

    Hi everybody, I hope you are having a great day. I just started playing slingshot. Have you ever used "SIMPLESHOT PREMIUM LATEX TUBE and SHEET" ? I plan to buy their 1842 or 1745 tubes and 0.7 or 0.8 mm PREMIUM LATEX SHEET. What do you think ? Thanks Also, where do you buy pouches? I saw it...

    I'm shooting 10mm steel and my taper is 20 to 12 and it's snapping right at the tied pouch end. I shoot 8mm steel and on the same taper and it happens just not as quickly at 10mm steel is it because the 12mm tapered end is to small? Should I go up to 14mm or 15mm? Any advice will help.. look at pics

    I've got a question when I store bands that I previously made under load Does that make the band weaker since it stored tide or should I make bands as I need them? Thanks
  11. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    When tying flat bands to the fork tips I have always done a pre-wrap around the groove first and then put the bands in place and then started to wrap around the bands. It works fine but I noticed 1 video where the bands were just tied straight to the fork tips. I like the idea of the extra wrap...

    What's a good size band for use with paintballs? I have Theraband gold and blue and may be able to find Alliance rubber bands. Thanks
  14. The Art of Shooting
    Edited per Charles' questions. I shoot OTT, usually using 030 latex straight cut @ 3/4". It seems that after putting on new set of rubber that my shot placement is dramatically more inconsistent. Once those bands get 40-60 shots under their belt then shot placement comes back to what I...

    I found this site that has the Rolyan tubes and their bands. The prices look reasonable to be. Check it out and post your opinion.
  18. Slingshot Modifications
    Thanks so much for having me. I'm pretty much a novice. I have a daisy powerline model I bought from walmart. I have had some practice with it as I also owned one before. I was really hoping someone could give me tips on mods for better accuracy, and faster firing. I was thinking I should mod...
  19. Band sets

    A few made in one morning. The pouches are all exactly the same, but a couple of pouches are kind of turned on edge. Left to right, 3 Light Sets, 3 Express sets, 6 Field sets. Picture taken on my work table where I tie bands. -- Tex

    So, many of us have a BOB...Bug Out Bag. In it there are many survival tools, one of which is a slingshot. The question is how do you maintain the longevity of the bands/tubes on your forks? We all know that heat is an enemy. Do you rotate them? Are they unbanded? what would you do it the...
