    Hi Joerg and friends,<br>What benefit does the folded bands give over the stacked strips? I mean the difference between 'two differently cut layers of bands' & the folded band that creates same width.<br>The folded band has less chances to tear off? And are stronger?<br><br>They surely make more "phhuddd" sound.

    Ketansa, folded bands look more ugly, are a bit more dangerous as they can tear more suddenly. <br><br>Stacked strips are more time intensive to make. <br><br>Performancewise, I never detected any difference.<br><br>Jörg

    Ok )),<br>Whenever you said 'this is a very powerful sling shot', mostly it had the folded bands. That's why I had this confusion. ))<br>Thank you for telling Jorg. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_study.png" alt="study" longdesc="34">

    Just today I tried to let the band in the piece, and not do the tape. I rolled up the band in rolls. It works great. I have no problem with that. When possible, I will always do so.

    Of course, performance is the same, if you let in a piece of gum, or you make tape. rubber is still the same (amount). Maybe you seem to be more energy, but it is not. just slapping it loudly. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    i'v just felt how much force it took to stretch them and also if they would penetrate all kinds of stuff(wood, cans etc) <br>the cut ones didn't penetrate all the stuff and the folded did
