I love cutting bandsets, my oldest daughter (2 and a half y/o) loves helping me.
Makes for some really cool daddy daughter time.

And yes she knows very well not to ever go near the roller cutter. She just loves giving me the rubber and string and then she chooses what sling they go on.

It is only annoying when I have no spares and I need to make one quickly in order to keep shooting, which doesn't happen often, as I always have a spare frame banded up or 1-2 band sets on the ready. Otherwise I like making band sets when I can't shoot anyways. Pour a glass of Jack Daniel's, listen to some good old rock, and band making becomes actually enjoyable!

I get in the mood and as u said .. bust a bunch out so i dont have to do it again for a bit .. funny thing is I end up changing my draw length or taper and end up with a bunch of bands that I dont use haha

It keeps my mind entertained for a while. I usually make 30-35 bandsets an hour which last me a month or a bit less.

I prefer making them in big batches , If I made bandsets everyday or weekly it'd be very boring for me.

It's a love/hate thing. When I do go at it, 50 sets at a time (a whole roll). Outside of that, I couldn't be bothered. Luckily, as a high end frame builder, I never have to send a band set with the frame. Most people who buy off me, already have a personal preference and don't need a band set with the frame.

Definitely not enjoy, but less than hate.

I suppose I'm sort of torn, I think @Tag put it best for me 'good once I get started'. But I'm like that with most sling stuff other than shooting haha, like rolling clays or ammo collecting.
