    i read something interesting in another slingshotforum<br><br>quote: If you take a band set of, for example, black <br>thera with the same pull weight and tapering like a bandset from the <br>golden band, the black set delivers more speed than the golden. <br><br>I can only speak about my sets. I use it for ammo sizes between 7, 6 and<br> 12,7 mm. Here is the difference remarkable!! So I decided to stop using<br> the golden since nearly one year. And I really don`t miss it<br><br>it would be interesting if it was true <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br><br>i also wonder if tube is more durable than band or bands with layers are more powerful than tubes<br><br>ps. i am not allowed to link since i am a new guy, but google will help you find the full discussion

    after surfing a little bit more i find that theraband black is almost 1/2 price of theraband gold <br><br>so for example if you use double ammount of black and get same result as gold there is no point UNLESS double layer black is more durable than single layer gold<br><br><br><br>but if you only need 3 layers black instead of 2 layers gold and 3 layers black hold as long or longer it is a win<br><br>have anybody tested???

    I also like blue, I agree it has much better action than gold.
