All I've shot is flats &tubes.. I still shoot both depends on what shooter I'm using.. I tried chains before but I guess the cheap 32's from Walmart weren't the best ones.. or I did something wrong.. they didn't last very long and didn't seem to have much punch.. though some people love them.. I mostly use tbg tapered.. though I'm loving the latex that came on my flip in out slingshots.. probably gonna get a sheet of that next..

Use #64 chained....like 3 ..2..1..per side...or 2..2..2.. per side...Now your talking some power here...for your emerg use  when you run out of tbg..

I am very new to this, so please forgive me. I have a professional slingshot I just purchased - it's fabulous. Heavy. Metal. It uses tubes. I find it quite intimidating after using something like a TruMark. The power and accuracy is incredible. Can someone please tell me what chains are? And are they something I could use on my slingshot?

Chains are rubber bands chained together. Can you share a picture of your frame? I know a couple highly experienced guys in Utah that may be able to help.

You do? That would be incredible! Wow. My name is Pat, and this is becoming an addictive hobby, and I want to get the best bands for it. Picture is attached. I will give you my email address, if you'd like.

P.S. How do you attach an image here? My apologies for not being in the know yet.
