    So me and a group of friends have recently started playing slingshot paintball out in the woods recently, it is quite fun. We've been using crappy 8$ slingshots from walmart that have 2.50$ replacement bands. They get the job done but the paintball does not always break so we play with an honor code.<br><br>First question is:<br><br>Is this the right kind of thera band for making your own bands? (It seems I can't post links for 7 days, its the 150ft roll of theraband gold at yogaaccessories website)<br><br>Second,<br><br>Has anyone here already done some tests with paintballs and found some good band dimensions to get paintball speed within legal limits? (about 230-250 fps).<br><br>Im looking to buy a huge roll of theraband and make a metric crapton of replacement bands so we do not run out for a couple months.<br><br>Third,<br><br>Is anyone here selling some slingshots? We are looking for about six or seven Y's that are all the same for a decent price, not looking for anything too fancy. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    first: yes it seems like the correct type <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>second: no, but try tapering 25-20 mm. does well with lead balls<br><br>third: i dont sell catapults but i would recommend a couple for a good price. if u just want a cheap one, get a wrist rocket with red bands. yellow tubes are terrible. if u want a hunting slingshot, i would highly recommend lookin at the gamekeeper range. john has many designs and are powerful and accurate. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><a href="http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/browse/shooting-airguns-airsoft-slingshots/_/N-1100285/Ns-CATEGORY_SEQ_104580180?WTz_l=SBC%3BMMcat104792580%3Bcat104690880" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/browse/shooting-airguns-airsoft-slingshots/_/N-1100285/Ns-CATEGORY_SEQ_104580180?WTz_l=SBC%3BMMcat104792580%3Bcat104690880</a><br><br>or<br><br><a href="http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=gamekeeper+catapult+&_trksid=p5197.c0.m627" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=gamekeeper+catapult+&_trksid=p5197.c0.m627</a><br>
