Found this forum yesterday, went and found a natural Oak fork today. Got it nearly finished even customised the grip to suit my hand. I'll get some pics up when i've finished it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br><br>I plan on using it for target shooting progressing to small game. My question is on the bands. I read somewhere (can't remember where - not here) that theraband black returns to shape quicker than the gold. Is this right? If so would multi layers of black (to get the draw weight of gold) produce a faster slingshot?

from what I can understand theraband blue is the fastest BUT you need to use light ammo, if you use heavy ammo gold is the best<br><br>but I never got any answer and I asked this question too....<br><br>cheers/Johan

</table>Going by what you said you need gold to get heavy ammo moving and going by the vids on this site, you need 2-3 strips per side I assume this is to increase the resistence and torque* of the bands but like I said before couldnt the same pull be acheived with more lighter bands? Using the above table as a guide and assuming the blue bands are quicker than the gold. 3x blue bands at 250% stretch would be a draw weight of 40.5 lbs (3x13.5) which is 0.5 lbs more than the 1 x gold. Would this then launch with the same torque* as the gold but at a faster speed or am i missing something?<br><br>So going by the vids on this site along with the above assumption. My guestimation would be that a slingshot with 2x theraband gold bands on each limb would be comparable to a slingshot with 6x theraband blue bands on each limb in resistance or draw weight with the blue having slightly more pull and a faster launch.<br><br>Has anyone got any experience with this or enough spare time/cash/theraband blue and gold to test the theory?<br><br>Thanks, <br>Cunningfish (aka Steve)<br><br>*Not sure what word to use here - used torque as i understand it from cars

I know that Jørg uses 500-550% elongation since it is most effective <br><br>quote from another forum: 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

On one slingshot, I gave three strips TB Gold, and I thought it would be the highest performance. Wrong! Balls 10 mm. It never fired. Minimum was 15 mm. But I did not have the strength to really stretch Joergs wife has bigger muscles like me, so I had only two strips on each side, and it's fine, although it is still a minimum of 15 mm balls.<br><br>I stretch the rubber to 500%. And for smaller ammo, less than 10 mm, I use TB silver.
