    Great video John. You make it look so easy but I guess you've done a few ............thousand !<br><br>I'm playing around with a slingbow a the moment. Can you fit flatbands to a Marksman/Barnett type slingshot and replace the crappy tube?<br><br>Or should I just upgrade to black tube.

    Great video. Nice banding jig. When ever my friends ask me how I rig the flat bands I send them to your video. Then they watch you shoot some cans and then they want to try. Keep rockin'.

    Thanks for the excellent video. My band tying technique varies a bit but I'll just do it exactly the way you do from now on, as it looks very secure, tidy, reliable and easy to do.

    I use your method for some time. I made also a similar product for making bandset.<br><br><img src="http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/3659/dsc06282w.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I think that your instructional video is very clear and it has to handle everyone. Thank you!

    I seen a very easy to make setup just recently, it involves 2 triangle cuts out of 2 pieces of a small length of wood such as a piece of 2x4 and placing clamps like these in the slots. Attache the two boards to each other at a distance equal to what you need and your done. Very simple and cheap.<br><br><img src="http://www.irwin.com/uploads/products/large/metal-spring-clamps-93.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>It's not as sexy as the one above, but its practical and simple to setup if you have the clamps its win win. But if you want the press down clamps you can get them from ebay for like 3 bucks and that is a nicer setup.
