    I gave my friend Ashkan his slingshot yesterday, banded with two layers kettler flexiband strong on each side. The bands are tappered 20mm to 14mm and 24 cm long. I took one shot from 7m 50 on a can, the only one i had with that slingshot. One shot, one hit. That slingshot is great, i have to make one for myself for sure. Ashkan was very pleased with it and i was happy he like it so much.<br><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Bci6vmP7yIk/UI5f1xJCbwI/AAAAAAAAADI/X4YlrzwyK90/s640/AS2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Thanks for watching.
