    well... There not like scopes but rather an alternative version of one. The sights have have sensors that attract your eye for better aiming.

    As for finding rubber tubing, find someone who has been to a rehab CENTER for recoving from rotocuff surgery.. I used it for strengthening my shoulder. There were three colors and each had as different strength.. red purple or green... I have also been using the flat bands that you can get for tummy excersise... I also have used 3M'sScotch-Grip tm,4799 Industrial Adhesive instead of string or sinew. to mount the bands to the fork and the ammo holder.. I have yet to have the/a joint come apart.. I have used both single and doubled bands. The ammo pouch is from an old Mexican purse I purchased at a garage sale for a quarter.. The double band goes well over 300 feet and that is using cast off, lead 38 cal. bullets weighing in at about 138 grains..

    wow I did not know that ... well I got my pouch from my friend.Also I rather use surgical tubing for now since I don`t have any flat bands.i would use 5/16 steel shots which work amazing for me.thanks for the valuable information.

    wist? I don`t use marksman, but rather trumen It`s protective layer gives it a far greater life span then i have seen on marksmen`s tubing.

    really, ay? I did the same thing... More power, but less life span. I`m currently using surgical tubing which is far greater life span than braided bands.

    hey this works good but the rubber band snaped and it hurt big time so it may be better to use a thin hair band not rubber bands just a sugustion

    Cool, looks really cool, but before you post an Instructable, you should test it out and stuff so nothing bad will happen.
