    i had the idea while thinking 'bout how much i hate to be interrupted by band breaking while shooting:<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=2&u=17552695" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/17/55/26/95/neue_b10.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>so i would be able to shoot at least 4000 balls <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13"> 'till i have to attach new bands. have to exploit the weekends, not to waste time cutting new bandsets <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt="Rolling Eyes" longdesc="14">

    A double Gemini: a twin twin. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> I think I'd find the extra bandsets hanging off to be distracting, but who knows, maybe they wouldn't be so bad in actuality. Give it a shot. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    This works. I recommend putting the unused bands around your wrist, like a lanyard, so there is no risk of entanglements.<br><br>The only disadvantage: This won't be very ergonomic as the front and back side will be identical.

    you're right. loose bands would be very disturbing. but thats just the sketch of the idea. <br><br>the real slingshot might look completely different, though this design would work for me as i'm shooting finger supported gangsta style. hammergrip won't really work with forks that high.<br><br>surely i'll find ways to hold the unused bands out of the way with o-rings or kinda wrapping or clamping methods.
