    I used a similar technique that Joerg used for the duct tape slingshot and made this

    Since I didn't have any duct tape, I settled on using the left over cut-up sweater to wrap around the pencils (which was a mess on its own, using electrical tape that had a majority of it's adhesive gooped up). The cloth increased the hand size by a good amount, giving it an amazingly comfortable palm-swell.

    I used doubled blue dimpled surgical bands/tourniquets for the bands which are not that great if you want power.

    The whole construction is kinda wobbly, but the cloth makes it so that it can't move pass a certain point, in this case how the fork kinda tilts towards the shooter, which is great on the wrist imo.

    It shoots accurately, but not with alot of power; marbles won't go through a cardboard box

    That's interesting! Never thought of using cloth as a substitute for duct tape!
