Just ordered the same (almost) ammo. 1.25" , 1.50" and 1.75". The 1.5 inch ones are supposed to weight 4.6oz (130g) and the 1.75 inch 12oz (340g). We'll see. I'll prep the bronze and gold while waiting. :P

Y'all are going to get bored of my videos soon.

For anyone still intrested the bands are 35mm-25mm 4 per fork cut 33cm shot using the Tobse style draw and ammo grip with an almighty flip/push.

Yeah, breaking the record is pretty boring to watch... NOT!
Awesome shooting.
To reach 200 Joules you need ~128 fps with that ammo. I guess you need a warm day to get there.
But it seems pretty much maxed out, isn´t it?
Maybe some more radical tapering jeopardising bandlongevity for a record shot?
I remember Jörg´s words from the W-Tutorial... we are going for power, not for compromises.
Be careful.

Ive been thinking how easy it is to pull the bands now and have been toying with going to 40mm-30mm taper but im going to wait untill this set break. It could be that this is 2much of a jump.

Finally I have some challenge here! This week my new slingshot will be finished so I'm very excited how much this thing will pull out!
So Juggalo if I ever come to the UK we both have to meet

It's a good thing you don't live here Juggalo. You, me and my brother would be egging each other on in a very dangerous fashion.
