I use fluted beech wood inserts placed between the fork loops to attach flat bands to 8 mm cold bent stainless steel rod slingshots. 6 mm steel rod is fine for smaller slingshots.

I show the entire process in this video, if ever:

The section on how I make the wood inserts starts at minute 4.52. Fairly straightforward using a drill stand, and above all, it's safe, as there is no way those inserts can come out with the bands.

I use a 1/16 by 1/16 strip of gum rubber, never had a problem with it! On the one one that I shoot yet. there is a piece of red heater hose (like the first) then a piece of Kralon tube over that, then a dowel driven in to lock, then the foam driven on with a little alcohol. There was a dowel driven the first one also.
