G'day fellas just want some advice on some premature band wear on clipped slingshots. The Titan Hunter frame by Chris Graffin is by far my favourite frame but since the start I have experienced some band wear near thr forktips right at the clips. When I first received the slingshot I used some 2000 grit wetsand to take the sharpish edge off the slingshot frame and the brass clips which has significantly helped in band life but even still, I am still getting wear at the forktips. I know its easy to say it's caused by awkward angles etc etc and compression of the clamps on the bands. I am wondering if anyone has faced the same problem with clipped slings and if they have found anything that can furthermore prevent the early band wear. I haven't had any bands snap at the pouch while using the Titan yet all have been replaced right before they snap at the forktips. I suspect I get around 300 per set which is still pretty good and I simple cut 2mm of band off and use the bands until once again they break near the forktips. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have attached a pic below of how the band wear starts. The photo was taken at 100 shots.
