I'm experimental with different set ups and would like to know other people's opinions for best tbg length and width for shooting 9.5 steel. For hunting and target shooting

I like a 25mm straight cut around 120mm long and draw back behind my ear semi butterfly that's the untied length so probably about 80mm active length after tying, have 35mm straight cuts same length for 12mm lead

I've gone off TBG mainly because it not lasting at the minute I'm using Orange Duo Duo which seems to be really fast and shot count is around 400 at moment.

I don't get them 9.5 anymore I think it's 14mm steel I get and it's spot on dropping more than I ever have with a catty and double thereaband gold don't think I'd swap that setup now theraband last aslong as it's not getting over stretched I used to have same problem.

Looking forward to the leaves dropping for some proper sport.

Had some success with these and 9.5 I think they were 25mm

Measure your draw length , divide it by 5 or some say 5.5 this gives you the perfect active band length , which is the relaxed length of elastic from your pouch tips to the tips on the frame . i use 25 to 20 tapers on the PPMG and 20 to 15 tapers on the uniphoxx's
