  1. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    Can you roll flat bands to get the same form factor as tubes, but with the performance of flats? It would be helpful in roller-based extension setups, like Joerg's V slingshot. It's not hard to roll rubber if you get it wet and use weights to keep it from unrolling and keep it from twisting...

No surprises in the thread they all seemed to break exactly where theory said they'd break. i.e. at the one point where the long grain suddendly becomes cross grain!! I took a 5 pound sledge and...
