    Hope everyone’s doing well .
    I’m trying out some gong chi bands from catty shack
    Today . .7 25-20 mm taper at the recommended 4.5 times stretch. Blitzed a can with 9.5 mm steel with authority then tried a few 11mm steel with the same results I’m really happy with them so far .
    Cheers everyone

    I'm sure all those Chinese bands are all made in the same factory just given different names and boxes, I can't tell the difference between them all.

    Possibly so I’m certainly no expert but this .7 green is definitely different stuff to the .7 green GZK bands I’ve got but there the only Chinese bands I have for reference so can’t really comment on that fella .

    To be honest the frame in the pic is the first proper frame I bought going into lockdown it’s a John web joker style frame and that came with theraband gold and that was sound . I’m just trying what’s out there until I settle on what’s me if that makes sense . Frame before that was a Barnet cobra when I was about 10 that paper round money paid for lol .
    If you wanted to try it out I’d gladly cut some off for you and pop it in the post no problem. Not after anything in return just let me know how long and where to fella .

    Thanks for the offer but I've got loads of elastic, I think I've found a one I like so going to stick with it, I'm not someone who is looking for perfection. I'm using 0.7mm sumike, I find it similar to tbg but don't have the need to double up. I've been using tubes recently as well.
