What do you think about those reusable heat bags, they heat up to 50°C (122°F),
if you put them in your pocket near your slingshot to keep the rubber at a very high temperature, it should perform much better, especially at cold days.
I will try it, and put it in my slingshot bag. If one used an insulating bag (eg. to keep cold stuff cool) and put the heat bag and slingshot into it together, it should have a good effect, plus in summer, it doesn't melt your body...

I also can't really believe the 270m/s ... but I will start a little experiment with boiled bands...
And yes, it shouldn't be too hard, replicating, or at least test the effect of boiling water. atm i'm just out of bands, i'm waiting for a new rotary blade beeing delivered...

at least the heat bags should bring me about 10-15m/s for the colder periods.

Update: I tried hot water. But for me it doesn't work. I suppose, the evaporating water cools it down way too fast. within 2 seconds the rubber is about room temperature.

Next attempt is putting the bands in the oven...
