Before attending the 2018 international slingshot tournament in Italy, I made my own slingshots and was perfectly happy just nailing tin cans at 10 yards.

Since this major event, and particularly after having seen the Chinese team perform, and having tried their cleverly designed slingshots with their smaller-sized pouches and ammo they use for an optimized trajectory, I realized that I needed to work very hard to achieve 1.5 to 2 inch wide groups at 10 yards with the Chinese slingshots and the flat band rubber I have since purchased - these products are made with high accuracy potential in mind, and there is so much to learn from their approach.

My shooting has thus much improved since 2018, which is very satisfying indeed.

Well, this slingshot appears to have been the one used by the winning shooter at the Shanghai event:

That design speaks for itself in my opinion: a true precision tool for the "job". Stunning.

JPD Madrid published this info about Chinese flat bands on his commercial site, if ever:

From what I have read elsewhere, flat bands for OTT are extremely popular in China now.
