    Hello all,<br><br>Is there any advantage to attaching the band to the leather? I was thinking you could cut a slit in either side of the leather and simply pass the band through. This would make only two attachment points (on the slingshot itself) and would ensure the leather is always centered as it could slide to the center point.

    The main disadvantage is that if you want tapered bands (= much faster), you loose a lot of rubber as you have to cut "butterfly" shaped bands. <br><br>Also the pouch turns as the rubber is very thin when fully drawn.
