I have been reading some of the posts and have a few questions. <br><br>1). What is the advantage of a long draw or buttery fly style? Looks uncomfortable and I cringe at the fact that a speeding pouch runs just past the face. <br><br>2). Can short draw build up enough power to work as good or better than long draw?<br><br>thanks!<br>Nick

The advantage is speed, and you will allways have more speed using butterfly, ofcourse very weak butterfly bands will not work as good as strong normale bands with heavy ammo but i am sure you will understand that

<div>Short draw is fine, but the longer the acceleration distance before the ammo leaves the pouch, the greater the velocity potential. </div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

butterfly style gives you the maximum speed ... but you must take care to leave enough room between your face and the bands ... it can be accurate as well ...

<div>I don't shoot butterfly much because I have long hair and if I'm not careful, the pouch grabs it. But I like the speed and the easy draw. I'm just not practiced enough to be very accurate yet.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

<span class="postbody"><br>yes, but you'll need stronger bands ie 10kg 10cm will give less speed than 10kg 35cm ... and stronger bands are less accurate ...</span>
