    If you shoot rocks you don't need much power, i think that theraband ref could be strong enough for some stones.
    I also recommend you to use high fork, wide and small fork will increase the risk of fork hit
    I hope this was useful :)

    It will depend on how strong you are. Where are you from? Your writting sound familiar....

    The combination that you want is not to achieve. And you have to make a difference between fast and power. With Theraband red you can get very fast shots, but only with small ammunition. With the disadvantage that the Bands will tear quickly (30 to 60 shots)
    With Theraband gold you can achieve a lot of power with bigger ammunition, but not so fast. And with the right setup you can make over one thousand shots.
    Theratubes last a long time, much longer then Theraband Gold. But then again that is slightly slower than Theraband gold.
    For me Theratubes green is the maximum for pulling on a Slingshot. Everything that comes after that only people like Joerg can shoot this realy good...:D

    For large stones, it should be enough.

    But if you start with the Slingshot, then Theratubes green in combination with rocks is not a good idea and I would not recommend this.

    As Brazil Viking said, it largely depends how strong you are. I would recommend getting some Theratube in Green and blue to start with. If they are not strong enough for you you can pseudotaper or even double them. If you want something REALLY strong then go for the Theratube Black which has LOTS of power (though I'm beginning to think that Dankung 50/80 gives as much power for less work. The Theratube Silver is really heavy duty and I only use it for slingbows now.

    I don't recomend the use of thera tube silver for slingshots, leave it for the x bows! Too hard to draw, and you can get stronger hits with tapering the black. Surgycal tubes can be nice too, even thin ones can be combined!

    somehow i cant understand what you guys do with these big tubes. ive used pseudo-tapered tt yellow full butterfly for 10-12mm steel, and it was enough. i have absolutly no idea why someone should use tt black or silver for a normal slingshot.

    Just for power with heavy ammo.

    But I confess that I only use the Theratube Silver for arrows now and, although the Black was my favourite for slingshots until recently, I have been finding alternatives that seem to give as much power for less effort. Doubled 50/80s are very much a current favourite though I suspect the best performance of all is from doubled .04 latex which is incredibly zippy even with big ammo.
