    Looks good to me!<br><br>The loop does take away a bit of your draw, but not very much. You simply deduct the length of the loop from the STRETCHED rubber length. So if your draw is 110 cm (half butterfly), and the loop is 5 cm, then the relaxed rubber should be around (110-5)/5 cm = 21 cm. Without the loop, it would be 22 cm. Not a great difference.

    <div>Instead of cord, I have seen others using a piece of small theratube. It opens the pouch when released an adds a taper.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">
