Here is what you want to use. You can find it in any fabric store or department like Wal Mart.

I second that. A roll cutter is the best method. And replace the blade as soon as you notice that it is not cutting the bands all the way through.

I would just use a new razor blade to cut slowly through the tube. Anything else might not cut it cleanly.

Thought buying such a roll cutter would be easy but after visiting two office supply shops, two craft shops and one hardware store I came up empty handed. Looks like I have to buy it online.

Have you tried a fabric shop?
Well no, I didn't even thought about that. But after my search on the net and your reply I think this would have been they way to go. Now I got me some on ebay. Anyway I'm just tinkering away on a cardboard template for my slingshot so I can wait a little for it to arrive.

Thanks a lot for the tip anyway.

Hey p4v, I've cut lots of tubing for my slingshots with a pair of scissors, it works just fine. Cutting tubing straight across is a no worries situation. Just cut it with whatever you have. Dip the end of the tubing in rubbing alcohol and slip it on your fork tip, making sure you keep the pouch lined up, then dip the other tube and slip it on the same way, again making sure the pouch is straight and tubes are same length from tip to pouch after you have them both on.
