I have shot with Fish's Hunter double bands and with the Trumark heavy pull Black bands on this paticular Brass Bentwire Slingshot. My Bentwire Slingshot are very very sturdy and do not bend.

I can vouch for the strength of his bent-wire slingshots. I have made some from steel as small as 1/8 " and when they are held and shot in the normal way they don't bend. Not to say you can't bend them if you really try, but for shooting as a slingshot they are just fine. They are very easy to slide into a pocket also. The nice thing about thinner metal is that you can force the forks out or in for the fork width you want. You can try different fork widths with the same slingshot and come up with just what is perfect for you to hit what you aim at. I love wire forks ! Not to say that I don't like laminated wood beauties also.
