    I have a basic twin tube model with wrist support. Very decent shot.

    I altered mine last summer to shoot arrows. I need to replace that ring with a whisker biscuit. For a cheapo slingshot and mod, it's pretty accurate and super fun. All inaccuracy is user error.

    In the UK we call those catapults. A slingshot would be more along the lines of the weapon David used to kill Goliath.

    Europeans have weird words for everything. Lol

    I'm just kidding-it's probably a geographic modern terminology thing.

    Latex tubing. A buddy of mine works in a lab and he gives me first pick on all medical stuff past it's due date. It all still perfectly fine but you know how the medical world works.

    I have a couple sizes tubing, the one i have on there now is about the thinnest one, feels best for me. The leather is just an old scrap i cut out of one of my wife's boots. I've also used post-elastieken and four of those work surprisingly well too in a pinch.

    I can highly recommend thera band. The tubing I use is the black one. A marble goes about 250 kilometers an hour.

    Well, that would involve actually buying stuff. I'm not too serious about my shooting it's more of a fun pass time thing so if i can get an upgrade for free I'll go with it but i don't actually put any money or too much time into it. Works fine as is and i don't have a chronograph anymore to test any speeds anyways.

    How do you like shooting nuts for ammo, i usually do rocks or marbles. I should have some in my spare nuts n bolts bucket, i like the idea.
