Yeah. Sorry. I forgot to type the decimals.

BTW, that diagram misses one thing. The hole's never exactly in the centre. For some reason it's usually off to one side. Intuitively (not based on measurement), I think that if the hole is eccentric, then the draw strength might be different. Perhaps that's why the data shows different draw weights per strand for 4 versus 8 strand bandsets.

4 strands 1842 ---> 6kg pull (1.5kg/strand)
8 strands 1842 ---> 16KG pull (2.0kg/strand; +33%)

4 strands 1745 ---> 8kg pull (2.0kg/strand)
8 strands 1745 ---> 18KG pull (2.3kg/strand; +25%)

Then again, perhaps it's down to how long the bands are tied and how far they've been drawn when the draw weight was measured.

Dan, that last post was very useful. Thanks. Do you happen to know if the Ther-Band tubes are eccentric as well?

I know you meant it as a joke, but I am making a visual chart, like eyeshot did above
I wasn't joking. The hole's not quite centred.

I don't know about Thera-band tube though. I haven't looked closely at any, but I'm told they are made to close tolerances.
