I've been using square bands for a few weeks, I like them but want to know their limits; how long will the different colours last, what kind of weight is optimum, have you noticed any fluctuations in usage etc.

I am afraid they store both defect of tubes and bands, with no apparent advantage. I have used them alot when I was a boy and, apart the difficoulties of finding good natural rubbers ones, they could be rather sloppy, (increasing with thikness) but thends to brake starting from any dents in one of the four corners.
sorry, it's just my idea

It looks like you have big balls, try the smaller ones, you may like them more.
