    since theratubes are what I will use I've been thinking of how to make them act more like tapered flatbands<br><br>and here is my thought, you attach them to the fork in "traditional Chinese style" and then you tie them halfway through the length of the tube(or whatever is most effective) so part of the tube length is double tube and the last closest to the pouch is single tube <br><br>here is a bad picture of what I mean<br><br><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/264o03r.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>what do you think? have anyone tried it?

    That does already exist, gamekeeper john made a vid,<a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/OLDMANSBALLBAG#p/u/37/Nuaq6nlUNLo" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/user/OLDMANSBALLBAG#p/u/37/Nuaq6nlUNLo</a> seems to work pretty well and if you have no access to thera band or sth that might be a good alternative... Will you try that and post what you found out?

    when i do my first slingshot crossbow I will try but I do not know if I can get my hand on a crony (expensive?) theratube and theraband is no biggie to get my hand on <br><br>by the way is it "paracord US 550" that Jørg is using for his guns?
