If the weather is cold theraband can lose its power plus I would use a slightly bigger bearing unless you are confident of headshots every time, I use a variety of ammo but mostly 10mm steels at the mo as I get them free from work, as a general rule of thumb if you are right handed you hold the fork in your left but eye dominance also plays a part, there is a little video just been put up that shows you how to find your dominant eye, another point often forgotten that has a big bearing on accuracy is your release of the pouch make it as smooth and jerk free as possible by just opening your finger, hope that helps and welcome on board take an hour to read over some old threads and most of your questions will be answered ✌️✌️

your bands have to match your ammo  . If I use straight  double 15 mm wide theraband gold  I shoot 9.5 mm bb say . the band may be a little heavy but its ok . low speed of ammo or bands that are to heavy will effect accuracy .

Hi scentchaser, I've hunted and killed with both tapered and straight bands. 

I believe im correct in saying that tapered accelerate quicker but I found that straight cut lasted longer. 

The only real advice I can give you is practice, practice, practice and when you think you've got it practice some more 👍

I have messed with tapered bands did not get on with them haven't bothered to go back and try more  . dont think its that big a deal straight or tapered .  straight bands like tubes last a bit longer . today there is so many ways to go when I was younger the choice was square rubber  3/16 or 1/4 inch , rubber bands or old push bike inner tube . You will just have to try different things
