Today I finished my first slingshot. I attached the bands to the fork with pieces of wood that put pressure on it. The Puch is made out of leather and two 5mm holes. I pulled through the bands and fixed them with yoyo string and a constiction knot. I just pulled them a little and both bands ripped. Then I made new ones and attached them with tiny pieces of rubber instead but they ripped again. The second time they riped 2cm away from the knot. What am I doing wrong?<br><br>My Bands are 45cm long and 3cm wide. Should I make two 1.5cm wide ones instead?
