Azure Asphalt Plastic bottle Peafowl Road surface

Leg Sleeve Wood Electric blue Font

Green Plastic bottle Asphalt Road surface Line

I'm shooting 10mm steel and my taper is 20 to 12 and it's snapping right at the tied pouch end. I shoot 8mm steel and on the same taper and it happens just not as quickly at 10mm steel is it because the 12mm tapered end is to small? Should I go up to 14mm or 15mm? Any advice will help.. look at pics

I've tried crystal string and normal band tying tape, it seems if I don't tie it tight like you see then it slips out? I have had some.luck with poly propylene twine. Seems to work great if tried nano paracord and inside strings of normal 550 paracord those slip everytime.
Thanks for help I'll take whatever i can get

Tried cuffs?
I am sure will never tie a pouch again,
Kind of a shame cause got good with tieing both sides same time with crystal string to get equal.
Note what happens when pulling tied vs cuffed connections.
The tied has a "hard stop" wheras the cuff "gives" distributing the load imho.
My cuffs are out lasting tied at least two fold maybe even three.
I am sold on the flexable friction cuff and if find did one not up to perfection,
tags equal, cuff to pouch distance equal, folds the same so easy to reset!
A good band prestretch,alchol pure clean attachment end, and cuff id , careful pulling band thru pouch hole, not over stretching cuff, marking
band to aid seeing placement, so far working out really well!
Using 2040 for larger ammo therfore wider pouch ends and 1842 for thinner, still dialing in cuff lengths for just enough surface area while trying to keep weight down.
Also how long band tag exits cuff for even more weight savings.
So thankful to those who posted on this forum this idea!
Along these lines...,
Wonder why car, bus and truck tires were not made pressureless?
If thy can now mold pressureless tennis balls, why not mold tires like that?
Never a flat and by computer modeling
considering specific rubbers durometer seems a mold pattern could be found to offer just needed flex
and lasting much much longer?
A set of tires with the tread pattern
molded deep into a pressurless outer circumfrence could last the cars lifetime?
I digress...
Cuffs prolong band life significantly in my everyday shooting experiences.
