Another safety issue--Slingshot tubing does break.  You should see the
cracks that develop in the home depot "surgical" tubing around the bent
part.  At a slingshot discussion at the  Boeing Employees Amateur Radio
club, one member mentioned a local ham who lost an eye when the tubing on
his handheld slingshot broke.  I recommend and use safety goggles or hood.
