I’m new to the sport, and to the community, so I have been slowly working my way through the pages trying to understand all the aspects of slingshot shooting. I noticed all the posts (mostly from the Canadian members) about cold weather bands.
I grew up in Maine (so am familiar with the cold) but currently live in Virginia so never really thought it would effect me. The current polar vortex has really shown me the variation frigid temps have of elasticity. I step outside for a few shots, and nail the first couple. Then I start to be a little off, so I try to correct. By the time I correct slightly, I am slightly off a little more, and so on. It really is frustrating.
I just hope this weather ends soon. I don’t want to invest in a whole new set of bands that will be unnecessary by the time they get here.
