    I had bad experience with thera tube, hopefully you wont have the same issues with twisted bands as I had, but to be honest I think the dark blue was too strong for me at the same time, perhaps still is <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"> Flat bands all the way <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13">

    TB Green shoots well enough with marbles. I took my detachable sling-x-bow to the tournament last year, equipped with a TB Green tube set. At some point, the ball flew in crazy directions. I tried to fix it, but no luck. Changed to a flat band set and all was well. Must have been a twist in the tube.

    maybe I phrase that wrong?<br><br>this is what I meant<br><br>tubes=durability simplicity<br><br>flatbands=power<br><br><br>my plans are to do a "barrel" and use small crossbowstring similar to Jørgs pump action gun and massacre master, so crooked tubes should be less of a problem<br><br><br><br>my only real question was if there would be any meaning in using any tougher tube than green with marbles and i think Jørg answered it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br>cheers dudes<br><br>/Johan

    Iv just recently started using tb green tubing and love it.. My ammo of choice is marbles and they fly very well, i replaced the original genaric tubing on a sligshot i bought t home hardware because it was just to weak.. Iv also trie tb blue tubing and im not a fan simply bcuz the marbles are far to light for it also tb green tubig is only $1 and the blue is almost double that... Stick woth the green unles using 10gram ammo or higher then i would suggest moving up to blue
