6Mm Square Bands

Recommended Posts

Alright lads I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am new to catapults only started a month or two back I have on my current setup double therabands and I cant get along with them at all. A freind I go out with let me have a go with his milbro with some 6mm square bands and I was 10 times better and it suited me perfect. But will these bands be powerfull enough to kill game with 12mm lead? I have no idea how much fps they are putting out. I are buying these ready made from http://www.milbropro...ts/accessories. They are called "traditional bands" on that page. If anybody can recommend any more ready tied band sets please feel free. The only reason they need to be ready tied with the pouch is beause i am cack handed and just dont have the time Also would it be fine just to attach it to the fork by doubling it up and using a pin in the loop?

 

Sorry for all the questions lads thanks in advance

I have dankung here, green theraband and various flatbands.

 

I tried the square stuff and its shiite.

 

Green dub dub is also crap imo.

 

The green theraband tubing is great and i have that on one.

 

But again, you cant go wrong with theraband gold.

 

Its just so versatile.

 

@ bunnys- nothings like it used to be. They just dont make it like they used to.

 

Most will kill game. Throw a 12mm lead at a rabbit and you will stun it enough to catch it :laugh::whistling:

 

Technology and knowledge develops. Theres a reason theraband gold is on too of the tables :thumbs:
