    I love the one i made. i use a 3/8ths eyebolt for a giude. i replaced the tubes with flatbands. i use standard walmart arrows though i could use longer ones as iv got a pretty long draw and i use a nock not a pouch simular to jorgs on his slingbow. ill post some pics when i figure out how. iv found the further forward your guide is the more stable the arrows are in the air

    could go old school for the arrow smooth out a peace of bamboo and use some hard wood for the noch.
