    Howdy folks,

    Been shooting various flat bands for some years now both in hunting and plinking configurations.

    I have made a figure 8 descender slingshot and currently using TTB for shooting BBs and it's great but would like to try tubes as I think they will fit the small fork tips better.

    I've seen people reccomend and 1632 and 2040 but have absolutely no idea which on to buy. All I know is that they refer to inside and outside diameter.

    Can anybody reccomend me a tube for BB shooting?

    Regards,

    Jack

      The solid 2mm is great for .177 steel - especially with a longer draw. The 1032s mounted as singles work well also. The 1032 in full loop (or double) configuration are good for plinking with 3/8 steel. The 2040 is good for plinking with 3/8 as singles and hunting with doubles. I only use the 1842s and 1745 in singles configuration.

      Hi shoot 1632 tubes with my ¼" steel and BB's. I use 3050 for 3/8 inch and 8 m m. 3050 definitely has more zip then 1842 and has a less draw weight. I definitely like the 3050 as my general use for anyting over ¼" it last forever and it is very fast. Never used 2050 or 1745. I also use the 3050 as my winter tubes and I shoot ¼" when it's cold out.

      I guess I should add that I order all my tubes from slingshooting.com with great success and quality of latex.
