Sirs:
I've always been sceptical of the method of sliding a rubber tube over a close fitting metal rod
and depending on simple "friction" to overcome the tendency of the tube to slip off, under sever draw tension.
I love the looks of the beautiful metal stocked slingshots, and fully understand the single tube doubled back and both ends
attached to the pouch, then no permanent attachment to the fork is required.
Please tell me how to attach a single tube to a "wooden" or "metal" fork.

I am so excited about discovering "THE" beloved sport is "alive and well" as I am 73yrs old, and when I was a kid on the farm just Southeast of Dallas TX
I would NEVER be caught without a pocket full of pecans, and my slingshot around my neck!!
SORRY! now I.m running my head!
Please help me to understand this proceedure

THANKS SO MUCH

Since you are in Texas you should hook up with Tex shooter Bill Herriman. He will show you how flat latex rubber pulls much easier and shoots faster than tubes. He also sells bands sets that are some of the best available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Curtis,

Slinging is very much alive and well.

Welcome to the forum. You will find a little of everything here.

ZDP just did a blog about tubes to frame attachments.

Curtis welcome, 73 is not to old to rekindle a passion from your youth, I am 69 and we have a few others with us, we could start an "Old timers Club". Seriously, have fun and be safe.
