Erm...

You can use any bands or tube really. Basically PFS is like any other slingshot - just without a fork gap big enough to allow ammo to pass through. A lot of people use tubes more because they don't tend to get as tangled as flat bands - so allow for quick follow up shots.

As for helping with tips - You can twist the pouch to create the 'speed bump' effect which helps push the ammo just past the frame as the band contract. Also a little flip of the wrist towards the end of the stroke...

They can be a bit of a struggle for some folks to get the hang of - and shooting yoursefl in the hand is a real possibility. But some people just are able to use them like its natural.

It can be a more instinctive approach to shooting - but they can be aimed.

The only way to do it is to try. Start off small BB's etc. see how it goes.

Work on 450-500% elongation for your draw.

Fork gap - Really just enough to allow wrapping the bands down... In some cases its zero... 6-8mm is fine.

If using tubes - you'll need some tube protectors (thicker tube the drawn tube is inserted into). You'll be surprised how quickly tubes can be eaten but the frame without :)
