    pasquale gave u the perfect video!! if u want tube bands, u could check in walmart or some sport stores. they usually carry the yellow replacement bands. if u want faster tubes and u live in uk, u should contact john webb of gk catapults and buy a dub dub elastic band set. he usually has quiet a lot of that stocked up. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D7yoK91IDI&feature=plcp" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D7yoK91IDI&feature=plcp</a><br><br>

    you should get dub dub elastic as it seems faster than the tubes you get in in stores.

    Tubes can also be attached through a hole drilled through the frame or through gypsy tabs in my experience. If you want power out of tubes though; go with the black tapered tubes made by tru-mark. Sports authority should sell them next to the catty' section. <br><br>But to attach all you need to do us drill a hole just a bit smaller and tie a large knot on the other side. Putting a piece of wood or a marble has fantastic results, or so I've heard, but daisy had a line recalled because that method would fail and send the weighted band end right into the shooters choppers.<br><br>So I'd say go with gypsy tabs, but that's just me.<br><br>All you need is some waxed chord (sinew works well, dental floss is great too!), 2 pieces of leather, and some super glue...
