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

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.

The bottom pic has the tubing doubled over and tied at the pouch...the other picture has it tied off further down. I think thats what Greyman was on about
