I've not seen this before...

    I use this doubled attachement some times at polished Alu, because it´s a little bit slippery.It´s a good thing.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=49&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i15.servimg.com/u/f15/17/79/35/09/24112010.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    had that slippery problem to. it works if you cut the bands wider than the forks, and fold them around the corners while banding them up.

    Nice slingshot and finish. I think the double attachment is a good idea.
