Nice! I like the shape. Surgical tubing is a good material, and usually cheap and available. Have fun!

Looks cool, tho i think the way you attached the bands to the fork will make them rip easier, not sure if true

Our raccoon once made some cool bandsets from ordinary baloons (the one clowns can build figures with are even better). They got a lot of smack aswell! Nice first one. I'd replace the plastic zip things with some cotton string... it hurts less when it hits your hand, is lighter (more speed/power) and the bands last longer. Check out "constrictor knot" on youtube for more info on how to tie them.
