    Looks like you are about to shatter the bones in your hand. Very unique.

    I thought of somethhing that might increase the power and speed. the metal ball attached to the slide could be replaced or coated with the rubber they make those super balls with. I remember my brother taking a regular slingshot and hot gluing one of those into the leather patch and putting on arrow on the table, he aimed and fired the ball at the arrow...we never saw or found the arrow, and we were on an old air strip.

    Reason why hand slap is so little

    Yes he does get hand slaps but they are not significant enough to really hurt him because of the motion of the bands inside the metal rings at the top and bottom of the slingshot bow.
