pretty decent looking slingshots.

Never seen those flat bands before. What sort of strength pull do they give ?

Depends on how wide i cut them i dont know what the draw weight is but they are a lot faster than tube bands because they dont stack and you can double them up to

JoergSprave the famous slingshot master on youtube uses flat bands, it's probably one of the best materials you could use for slingshot bands.

  I just made a sharp seven strand snowball sling that I'd trade for a nice sling shot. Let me send you a post a picture of it and you can let me know if you're interested.

  The cords are jute and mason line, the pouch is jute, and the whipping is synthetic yarn.

I got two slingshots from ghost a few days ago in the mail and I couldn't be more pleased.  I was a little hesitant making the trade at first because I really liked the way that snowball sling came out.  If anyone is considering trading with ghost I can personally guarantee that his slingshots are top quality.

I can verify that too! I love the thing.... soooo  much faster than a normal slingshot, but flat-bands do not have enough power to throw an arrow.

On a side note, ghost, chucker mike, and squirrel yours will be in the mail by the end of the week. Still waiting for some people's money to get here so I can send all at once ;)

where do you get those flat bands??? I have been trying to think of where I could get them and I really just have no clue.  some kind of medical supply store? sorry to be a little off topic, but I was hoping to make a giant waterballoon slingshot for a kids summer program but don;t know where to get them... any suggestions?

For a waterballoon slingshot I would guess that Thera-Band would be ideal (and I believe is the same material as flat slingshot bands).

Yes i get it from a med supply store online but if you were going to make one foe watet boaloons i would use tubes for it will bw a lot cheaper and you can gwt it at home depo oe most big hardwear stores

Post by vonuberoydawg on Mar 31st, 2013 at 3:48am
are thera-bands generally what is used though, does it go by another name?  I see you can get them in rolls so I could cut my own lengths, also, how do I tell what strength level they are?  I see like 10 different levels but no 2 sites use the same name system to tell which is which.  again, sorry to jump the thread here.  maybe PM me a response so we are not TOTALLY taking over the thread.  BTW the slingshot looks pretty cool.
