Angry Forking and hand slaps

Hi, as a new memeber of the forum and just as new to slingshots I would llike some advice. I have been in my workshop and have made a couple of multiplex slingshots from 22mm beach. I have used double tubes and also single 8mm square band, both TTF. I find i am having a lot of fork hits and also a few hand slaps, is it the way I am using them or the bands? Thanks in advance!

I always recommend the how-to video of Gamekeeper John
He explains how to shoot a catapult in every detail.
And if you stick to his advices you should see some improvement very quickly.
Here´s the vid.

If you gimme a clip of your shooting i can help you!

4 Pionts you can check for your self:

1-Release. There can go a lot wrong with the release.
2-Band alignment. Sure you get for hits when you aim at it
3-Slingshot isnt build proper
4-Handslaps with a TTF happens normaly when you flipp the wrist. Keep it stiff!

If you do a video i need to see your whole body and. Do 3 Shoots. Best woud be when i see how you do a fork hit or a handslep.
