    Did any of you struggle with looped tubes. I've always shot Thera Gold well , latex and gum rubber too. But looped tubes were a struggle. Finally figured them out. But it was a mission.

    I am shooting them righ now. I am not shooting paper, but string, I hit twice today from twenty feet, but I really don't car for them that much. Tomorrow I plan on shooting paper I shall report back. Maybe pictures if it ain't too bad.

    I shoot the SPS and I like the ease of changing band sets.

    I'll tell you what they don't aim well. But with instinctive shooting they work just as good as flats. I think it is because of flipping, but I don't like to flip when I aim. I use both styles, and I am just about as good either way but not with looped tubes.

    Distance = a measured 15 feet (5 meters)

    The orange dot is exactly 1 inch.

    Total of 7 shots, first 2 shots were flyers off the left edge.

    Here is a better pic of my shooter.[​IMG]

    I thinck they are also a pain to tie. But I loved the heavy single tubes for rock chucking. And the quick attach loops don't appeal to me because once they are on I keep the on.

    I don't think their any harder to aim but much more sensitive to release errors.
