    I have use a lot of different methods to attach to the forks but I think this is the best one I have come up with yet. It is the matchstick method but with a 3/8 brass pin embeded in the fork. I can use it for any setup I want and it is easy to attach tubes and still lets me use flatbands. I...

    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...

  7. Homemade Slingshots
    Hello all. I'm in the process of making my first hand-made slingshot. I ordered some thera-band tubing, and it's on the way, but I was hoping some of you slingshot guru/wizards could give me some pointers on how to attach the tubes to the slingshot. I didn't have any fancy, artistic wood, so I...

They were hitchiking and trying to reach the village of Milfontes. They were backpackers and their load was incredible!!...plus, they were on foot and it...

    Yo "Hypersonic" WBG *These are now available PM me for details (9-10-12) Not long ago I got a chance to shoot a .17 HMR rifle. This was truly a blast, and the experience got me thinking again about smaller ammo and high speed slingshots. A while ago, I was asked to make a smaller slingshot...

  14. Slingshot Tutorials
    Here is how I setup the 1745 tubes with the hole in the tube pouch setup. I have used it on 1842's and on the latex tube that Tex sells. This is a very good way to tie to a pouch, clean and strong. I have yet to have one fail from the punched hole. Generally they break under the cuff at the...
  15. Homemade Slingshots
    Hi guys, added a couple of changes to a slingshot I made a while back (El Lobo) . I put a palm swell on it so I could shoot with more of a straight wrist, and put a slot for Flat Bands as well as holes for Chinese Tubes. Only rigged it for two tubes per side, you could easily put in...
  16. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    I have been shooting single tube setups for a while now. I tried the tapered setups and the looped tubes. For me the tapered are a pain to get setup and the loops keep getting in my way I don't know how these guys shoot them but i know they do, and well. I started shooting the single tubes with...
  17. Slingshot Bands and Tubes
    I just picked up some 3/16 ID x 1/8 w x 7/16 OD Natural Latex Rubber Tubing Amber to make replacement tubes for my Trumark FS-1 (love that slingshot) and realized that I measured incorrectly. The 1/8 inch wall thickness is pretty thick. I think I should have been looking for 1/16. But since I...

    Here's a nice little shooter I banded up today. Its one of the stronger ones of the batch completed recently. I started it off with AusBand Blue (15mm x 170mm) but it broke after only about 50 shots. So I dug deeper into the parts bag and pulled out some pieces of 1745 Tubing. Figured I'd give...
  19. The Art of Shooting
    I read all of Henrys post about tapered tubes and thought i would give them a try. I set up a set of 1842's with a double band that is 3 1/2 inch measured from the fork to the tube that holds them together then the single is 4 inch to the pouch. I used a piece of 1745 tube 3/4 inch long to tie...
