    Are there any guidelines for using the output from the TBG calculator to predict band dimensions using other materials, like thinner thera band, latex, or gum?

    Here is the .xls file to calculate bands with different thickness
    http://slingshots.myfreeforum.org/Neuer_genialer_Exel_Flachband_Rechner_about1834.html

    There are two versions, the upper one is easyer. Hope there is a possibility to translate german - english somewhere for .xls files.

    Please do changes to the yellow marked fields only. There are formulas hidden in some other fields.

    Changing is allowed to:
    "2" = Kugel Gewicht = Ammo weight, grams

    "0,75" = Banddicke = Tape thickness, mm

    Nur bei Bedarf ändern = Only change if needed:
    Gummi Menge am Leder = Amount of rubber at leather
    Verjüngungs-Faktor = Proportion thick to thin end

    descriptions:
    Langsam = slow
    Schnell = fast
    Schneller = faster

    Schwach = weak
    Mittel = middle
    Stark = strong

    Good luck :)
