I shoot 3/8 TBG set up at 7" static with 31" draw. Pouch is 3/8 x 1 1/4" thin leather no center hole for .177 bb's. Not sure of speed but its pretty fast. Hits and shreds pop cans into pieces in no time. Thats done shooting a PFS by the way. Should work the same given the same draw length with wide gappers i would think.

Actually I buy my #64s office rubber at Walmart. I get one from the back, my store is good about rotating stock so the newer ones are in the back. I think they are less than a dollar and a half a bag.

117b Bands full loops are good as well for BB's. Though do find that office bands can break pretty early on.

My go to has got to be 1632 tube - its very consistent. Lately shooting more singles - but do like short pseudo's as well. Also last for 1000's of shots.

This is one place where I think tubes have an advantage. I've gotten tapered TBG bands of 1/4 inch by 1/8 inch by six inches to shoot BBs around 300fps but they just don't last very long. Light tubes might be a bit slower but their longevity would make up for it.

I BOUGHT A BAG OF #64 RUBBER BANDS. I ASSUME YOU LOOP THEM TOGETHER, PERHAPS 3 ON A SIDE, EH?
GP I think that #64 bands are 3 1/2 inches . If you cut them in two They should be around 7 ins. That should be long enough for most folks to tie on like flat bands. I guess you could link them, but you don't want to over power your setup.
