    I'm on my second lot of bsb white skull band, though this Bach is terrible. Snapping all over the taper.. 19-15-175mm
    Anyone else had issues.

    Getting less than 20 shots on some sets.

    Thanks.

      As recommended by members above straight cut bands have improved the shoot count. Power still there so I've learnt taper isn't that important. I can still take out extra-strong mint at 15 meters so accuracy is still good. Power is still just about the same.. So perhaps next batch I will reduce thickness. Still got a fair amount to get through, so lots of playing yet... Thanks for input.

      I have not had this problem with the BSB latex. I love it and experienced longer lasting band sets compared to what I was using. Hopefully it was just a bad batch.

      I love my bsb .5 I'll have to try some of y'alls recommendations for more power from my setups, i mostly use it for target shooting 9.5 steels and 12mm marbles and plinking 9-12mm clay in all my setups (short draw target shooting and partial and full butterfly pickle forks), if any of you guys order from Slingshooting.com have you also tried their ALS brand? It's their brand rubber and it's really nice i find it comparable to my BSB .5 and i have the ALS in .6 though i would like to try a thicker BSB and a thinner ALS lol

      I’m new to BSB but have been hearing good things and was wondering where in the states I can pick some up? I’ve been a big fan of Snipersling yellow .5mm. (Although the shipping from the UK sucks). I’ve found that that seems a lot like precise 3rd gen. So I’m guessing BSB white must be in a similar range? Still need to check out Cattyshack blue too. decisions..

      Thanks Stringslap. I looked but I could only find the yellow bsb there. He must be out of stock on the white.

      I absolutely love it. John Jeffries turned me on to it last year. As he says...It is like a chalkline to the target.

      BSB white is hard to find stateside. That's why I use the yellow

      I have just bought some .70mm, plan to cut it the same as Precise if the stretch is the same. hoping it is just as fast as the Precise or the Sniper Black.

      I'm using 23mm x17mm and 22mm x17mm x 32.5" draw right now a lot for the ~300 fps of 3/8" steel.

      I am just about to order some more from slingshooting.com. I might try 0.50mm with my same ammo, pouch and set-up, as opposed to the 0.55 I have been using every day for the last year. I like to throw them a buck-fifty and they cut the whole roll up in tapers for me.

      The snap of the bands and the fine, trigger like release of the 0.55 is going to be hard for me to beat.
