A recent 3/4" straight cut latex bandset lasted FOREVER. Got a hunch that's because band length was overly long. My disappearing memory can't recall what length was.

Tied new one on today w/ 8" length from fork to tie. Ammo is 3/8" steel.

Am I still being overly conservative?

If there's definite majority opinion I'll write it in my notebook to eliminate need for memory!

i do the 8" tie to tie, my draw is 34" sometimes pulling the same bands to excess's of 44" just for grins, the latex really performs well for me.

I shoot 3/4" TBG latex with 7 1/2" to 8" from pouch to fork tie. Band life was checked twice at 8" and I got 1325-1350 shots.

Cheers,
Northerner
