    Recently I've purchased 10 meters of Cando (USA) Gold (a way cheaper than the TBG here), but for my surprise this bands didn't were "Gold" color, more white amber then I've cut a medium power setup 25mm x 15mm x 28 cm for testing ... it was immediately evident the speed and power with 12mm steel, penetrated the hanging EMPTY food can from side to side <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"> ... I believe that the dealer send me something with latex ... could it be ?? ... never seen with this setup with the TBG's a hole side to side on a hanging can ...<br>[​IMG]<br>[​IMG]<br>[​IMG]

    Wow, this asks for a real comparisment test, same setup, ammo, temperature etc. And a crony of some sort

    <span class="postbody"><br>Yea ... I've used this setup with the TBG and old Cando (that were "Gold" color) and all same conditions ... in fact now are about 18°C no more (no really hot) ... I keep some TBG and the old Cando to do a Audacity Crony test, will need to check how many shoots lasts ... very surprised ...<br>PS: smells different "more rubber" smell ??? ...</span>

    That is interesting, maybe it is purer so you smell more rubber

    Still not yet done the Audacity crony (it's cumbersome) ... I still <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"> don't know whatever the rubber is or if it is a different formula (I need to know the exact nomenclature the dealer sent me) ??? ... but as I said earlier it is my first time I penetrated this type of can (hanging empty) wall to wall almost all hits with steel balls of 5.4 and 7 grams with single bands ...<br>[​IMG]<br>[​IMG]

    <span class="postbody"><br>yes indeed ... I've used the old Cando (not good as the TBG in speed and duration), the TBG and this "new" roll of Cando which is a GUN (at least the portion I've cut) and not only shredded 3 cans from yesterday also more than 300-400 shots (didn't count exactly) the band don't show ANY signs of tearing stretched to the maximum ... that's why I am astonished ...<br>[​IMG]<br>[​IMG]<br>I shoot ALL days 300+ shoots I know what I'am talking about ...<br>PS note that the bands changed the color with wear now are more "gold" ..</span>

    <span class="postbody"><br>yeah ... I know dry, dark, sealed, with talcum (torsten way) ... believe it or not here are my first Audacity crony results: the slower shot 86 m/s (7 gram - 25.8J) the fastest 93 m/s (5.4 gram - 21.6J) the TBG with this setup and temp (20°C) gave me 66 m/s at the best ... ja ja ja ...</span>

    <span class="postbody"><br>slowly ... I am old enough, it must be checked the whole roll consistency and I need to find out if they(Cando) changed the formula ?? or the old roll I had was a bad quality rubber ... anyway I keep enough TBG to use as reference ... I knew that this bands were shooting like GUN from first shoot ...<br>PS: I must add that Gamekeeper John found another brand ADSA that were also faster than the TheraBand ... so it is not first time ... see it <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIV8Cy4_X8o" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HERE</a></span>
