      Awesome shooting, Arturo. Those bands sound like they pack quite a wallop. Looks like TBG. I wonder the speed you are getting on those.

      @Thistle, the rubber is an "unknown" brand (I bought it as "Cando brand" but I know Cando are a crap), looks like TBG but it's thicker and stretches up to 4.8 maximum, I cut them 17mm x 13mm x 32cm length, at best 1.35 m draw ... sure are pretty fast, around 100m/s (33oFPS same as TBG) with 10mm steel balls ... lasts about the same as TBG but don't tear, it just breaks, always after a shoot LOL ! ...
      cheers

      Thanks for clarifying, Arturo. I knew you were experimenting with something other. I wasn't totally certain. The 'breaking' part doesn't sound good tho. Just be careful.
