    Those tube bands look really controlled in the slo mo. I bet this thing is pretty dang accurate.

    This is my interpretation of Joerg's crossbow design. It shoots very nice and is great fun. I am using 40lb theraband tube. <br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/ssur/FILE0147.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/ssur/FILE0152.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/ssur/FILE0144.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v684/ssur/FILE0146.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    since i wanna do one of these after i have moved I have 2 questions<br><br>I wonder are you using paracord US 550? since all i see in previus videos is that you use paracord<br><br>and he second is pouch and band to gun attachment, I can see you use knot in tube but do you use some rubber around the tube to hold back the band? and will office rubber work for this?<br><br>or is it maybe possible to use the texas charlie method?
