    Hi mates, here I am again with my new gloveshot design. Follow complete description:
    The body is made of very solid tube brushed outer and inner, factory heat-treated. The inner diameter of the tube is 25mm. Prongs (tops) of the fork are made of factory heat-treated; extremely solid bolts strength class of 12, 8. For comparison, an ordinary bolt has strength class of 4, 8. Diameter of the body of these bolts is 10mm. All metal parts are oxidized in factory conditions. Unique design! The tube can be disassembled as shown in the pictures and the cavity can be used as a small warehouse for spare bands and more. Also all the catapult can be folded and is extremely compact. The remaining details are made of industrial steel. Not tired hand when using. Unusually easy to hold even very heavy bands with this device. The height of the fork allows shooting full butterfly style. No impact of the bands on the fingers. Outstanding comfort and safety shooting. The bars can be changed very easily and quickly through the shackles which placed and removed bands as shown in the pictures. Ensures maximum accuracy and repeatability. Welds are performed by professional welder with Argon gas.
    Total weight of gloveshot with bands is approximately 500gr

    The pouch is made of very strong cowhide and can be used with even a second pair of bands.

    The bands are made in sizes recommended by Joerg Sprave, cut precisely and tied on a special mechanism that ensure equal stretching for tying, which is very important to provide the same volume and weight of the knots. The stripe for tying has fixed length and number of turns over bands. Shown in the images bands are extremely powerful and full capacity can be achieved by a physically strong person. To make a pair of TheraBand Blue and Black bands are spent 1 meter with 14 cm band width and 50 cm for TheraBand Gold. Shown below, these data are valid at draw length of 93cm:

    Blue: 220 fps, 60 foot-pounds with 36gr ball
    Black: 207 fps, 53 foot-pounds with 36gr ball
    Gold: 178 fps, 39 foot-pounds with 36gr ball

    Price: 50 euro plus one optional set of bands
    Price for bands: Gold 5 euro, Blue and Black 7 euro

    Gold is fastest, not strongest. At least that is my understanding.

    I'm running with some tube, and some gold's gym in green Heavy resistance which I find works great with heavy ammo, like 45 caliber lead balls which I happen to have a mold for. :)

    Couldn't be more wrong, gold is stronger not faster. At the same draw weight black is faster by a noticeable margin. Gold is better with heavy stuff.

    Very nice!

    Gold got the hardest draw. The thinner you get (Gold > Silver > Black > Blue > etc) the faster the bands retract. Still, if you attach a pouch to the bands and try to shoot something you will of course need more of the thinner bands to shoot a heavy projectile at the same speed as the gold-bands.
