    This is some sort of Chinese " reverse engineering" answer to hi velocity tapered band- Named "Solar Storm" by lintian999


    material is CNC 302 steel about 12 mm thick, kind of heavy in hand.

    each fork has 5 holes (center hole for loading ball in tube type band set to the small hole) and a "aim sight"

    [​IMG]

    fwd section amber tube 2040, black 1842 (longer than 2040 to creates elastic difference), aft section loop of 1745

    This style chinese call " out loop to loop" cocketail, the other types pseudo-tapered band style are "tube in tube " and "connector type"

    I tried this found hit hard as double TBG band set.

    For some reason it reminds me of untangling xmas tree lights ;)

    Definitely interesting!

    Nice frame! How is the life span for tube setup like that?

    VERY interesting. Hypothetically, the constant decreasing-length bands would provide a more constant acceleration.

    Would be cool to test it.

    Its probably quicker on the reload than long double flatbands.

    Good looking ss.

    yap, it looks complicated.

    ball in tube band life is average around 300-500 shots (China statics).

    band set must prepare in precision but still easy than tube in tube style.

    the ball is 5mm bb try to load in to 2040 is a pain, special tool needed (small bb inserting tool - a round rod magnet tip with a dimple)
