First, welcome to the forum!

Flatbands are faster than tubes, a fact that has been proven many times. The reason why the big commercial slingshot manufacturers (except Saunders) use tubes is because it is cheaper (both the rubber and the frame).

Tubes also may last a bit longer (though even that is disputable), and it is slightly easier to make a bandset with tubes.

Wrist braces - first off, those are illegal in many places, including some US states. Also, they make a slingshot more bulky. Plus, they have no accuracy advantage, many tournament champions use very simple forks, even naturals.

I don't like wrist braces, but when they are done right they work. Jack Koehler's King Cat is a great example.

I guess it comes down to your personal taste!
