Thanks GM I'll give him a go. Shall I get single or dbl banded? I don't really know what the difference is.

Thats a question only you can answer mate, you're best trying both and seeing what you prefer...double banded would obviously have a heavier draw weight. A lot of people use doubles but i personally prefer the lighter draw of a single bandset Edited by daveee88

I,ve never felt the need to go double with my bands, but in general people use doubles for hunting more, I have a few different forks and the target sniper will take a 35mm wide band which is enough to chuck 12mm lead and drop a pheasant, my ppsg has 25mm singles which are a good general all round size for targets and smaller game like pigeons and I have a nice hazel fork with 15mm singles on that I use for tin shooting in the garden it's deadly accurate but I would,nt shoot any live stuff with it hope that helps

I got the one were the tube bands are looped and slot onto the forks I recommend them and they have lasted longer than the bands I have used on another frame.

if you go on eBay you can by 4.5 X 1.7 mm latex tube from China for around a £5 there's enough to make up quite a few catty,s and it behaves simulator to tbg but lasts a lot longer you can adjust the power by varying the size of the loop at the fork end about a third loop seems to be a god all rounder

Thanks GM, I'll certainly look into it. I'm not sure I understand your advice re varying the size of the loop tho sorry.
