      Lol The only thing I’ve cuffed is a cigarette my dad taught me how to smoke and be cool and not hold a cigarette like a girl u cuff it he said . I guess instead of busting me for smoking cigarettes he played a different psychological game on me Lol made me smoke 3 cigars like a man he said I didn’t smoke for like 25 years
      Great idea to try !!!!! The next bands I use

      The wealth of slingshot knowledge and having it be repeated is the best thing for slingshot shooters
      Thank you for the video

      Works great on tubes,also. Danny sent me two sizes of tubing and the small tubing I snipped into cuffs for the larger tubing. And if you're all thumbs like myself, the results are a lot neater!

      @thehappyhippy ,
      That's great work, man!
      I have a set of split ring pliers I am now moving them to my kit with some cuffs.

      I tied my constrictor knots on the pouch already... and somehow never thought of this! Simply genius.
