Does it matter if you cut your flat bands parallel to the roll versus perpendicular to the roll? I was cutting some flat bands today from various rolls in my inventory and cut some perpendicular and others parallel to the direction of the roll. I usually decide based on the width of the roll or how many bands I intend to cut. Some GZK rolls are only about 6 inches wide and I cut an 8 inch active length so I have no choice but to cut parallel to the roll. Simple Shot Black is about 10 inches wide so I cut my strips perpendicular to the roll. Does any of this matter for the overall performance and longevity of the bands?

Rubber is extruded, but I’ve cut it every direction and have never noticed a difference. SS Black die cut bands are 10 1/2” I’m sure are cut across the roll.
