Thanks for the guide. I made one myself. I found it works best with BBs or airsoft pellets. you can also use string or copper wire to improve the hold on the rubber bands. You dont want too many rubberbands because it increases the possibility of the bands falling out. You DO NOT need Knex to do this. I used a completely normal pencil. (i didn't use a normal pen cartridge, slightly larger). If you're any good at all with a knife, you can always shave a "layer" of the wood off in order for it too fit. Overall it shoots pretty far.
