i used very weak office rubber bands as the tying material so i was afraid that in case that i will hit the fork it will tear off...That fork has a lot of character. Looks like a really tough and rugged wood. Why'd you cover so much of it up with duct tape? If you think you like it now with those tubes on it, wait'll you get yourself some of A+ Slingshots' TheraBand Gold Doubles. No comparison.
That is a nice catty, though.
