The rubber required would be surgical tubing, in a diameter as seen fit. The windey thing could be the winch off a boat trailer, and bow part of your crossbow could be truck leaf springs.

look at site for maiking antient weapons, there is a good site that shows the actual old style slingshot made only from rope. the pouch is also made of the rope and contains two peices of rope to hold the shot. you can buy a “Genuine” israli slingshot for about thirty buck (20 pounds) and it should last a lifetime.
or you could just make one yourself.

this was originally designed for long distance water baloon shooting, but since then i have found that it works for iceballs just as well.
Here’s what you need:
a good sized funnel
about 15 feet of surgical tubing
1 foot of 2 cm diameter rope
Take the funnel and poke 4 holes in it with a screwdriver. The holes should be about 2 inches apart. 2 on each side of funnel.
Cut the surgical tubing into 2 large equal sized pieces. Place one end of each end into the holes. It should look like a sort of slingshot by now.
Tie the ends of the surgical tubing together
Take the rope and place the ends the ends through the washer and tie a knot. Pull the other end through the narrow end of the funnel. This is your HANDLE for pulling the funnelator back.
How To Use a Funnelator
To use a funnelator to its fullest you should get about 5 people Only 3 are needed at a time but you can get tired after awhile
Set up the funnelator like a slingshot. Two people are the “posts” and the third pulls back the funnel using one hand over the funnel and the other pulling the rope
For best results, pull back AS FAR AS POSSIBLE
Aiming is the fun part. I’m sure you all can figure that out.
Official Funnelator Records
3 broken ribs on a kid on the beach with a water balloon.
1 LARGE dent in a car from water balloon.
Many cc’s of blood lost from various faces from iceballs.
NUMEROUS windows broken from both ice and water balloons.
is works but you could try.
