I tried making a video on how to tie these but each time these was an issue, so here's an old school photo tutorial - hope this helps:

So first off you're gonna need: two small thin ties, two fork ties, a flat bandset of your choice (3/4"-1/4"×6.5" Precise yellow pictured), and ×2 7" loop tubes (1632 pictured). I've omitted talking about tying a bandset because if you can't already do that, go learn how and come back. Gamekeeper John on YouTube has a very clear video showing how for both ott & ttf.

Moving on, first we want to lay out bandset out flat with the pouch tie 'trough' facing up. Make a neat little loop with your tubing and lay about 3/4" in the middle of the flat band. Lightly pinch the tubing into the flat, wrapping the flat evenly on the tubing and stretching slightly. Take one of the your small ties and place it on the underside of the your tie, double knot using using a little spit to slide the knots down tight. In pic #4 we see the completed tie, the small bit of excess flat is no accident. We roll this back over our completed tie, which we see in pic #5 giving us a tidy finished product.

Next we tie it to our frame, a Torque in this case. Smooth your tubes out and make sure they make a nice parallel set, pinch the end of this loop. From here it's as simple as a classic wrap and tuck, the only difference being when you fold back the 'lip' for the final 2-3 wraps it's it's a little more fiddly.

This particular setup is for launching 6mm steels & heavy airsoft BB's and boy does it ever send a pill! It's nice light draw compliments pinching that small ammo & has wicked accuracy to boot. I hope you guys enjoyed this & think about giving them a try for yourself, if you're anything like me you'll be hooked!

Happy building & shooting everyone!

Great tutorial - thanks!
Is there a reason for wrapping and tucking the loops instead of sliding them through the cut in the frame?
I do not know.

But I would love to know...

Now we wait.

Great question, truth is they shoot close to the same, I think it would come to preference and which frame. Here's my starship wearing tbg×2040 cocktails & you can see the loops do run through the eye bolts. This setup is the most powerful I've got, I'd be comfortable taking a raccoon with it if I was inside 30' & throwing 1/2" steel:
