Heissan :wave:

Let's see, how well new GZK Black 0,72 latex shoots. This is made for cold weather use. Temperature is +1°C, so it's not really cold.

M8 hex nut weights 5 grams and when watching first clip and hole size; I think this band gives good speeds.
Long time since last time shooting with hex nuts, round ammo is much easier.

Kalevala, thanks for the vid man, you got me feeling good about my purchase of the black. I tried to order more of the thicker stuff for my large ammo, but gzk wont have anymore until next month. Quick question for ya, what length are your bands cut to, and what's the draw length? It looks like I have a longer draw, and will have to make a slightly different cut.

Damage wise not much of a difference? Nice shooting and video.Do the black last pretty long?
M8 hex nut makes a bigger hole and hits harder.

This was the only time that I have had oppotunity to shoot with these bands (work,winter,darkness :( )

but with my measurements I would say these last long time.

Thanks !

I cut my bands usually (0,7-0,72) length 23 cm, 1"-3/4". Same with these,

Active length is 16 cm and my draw 72-78 cm.

Great shooting as always buddy. I for one am glad he developed a black color. Im tired of hunting with bright orange bands.lol!
Thank You very much Ibojoe :thumbsup:

Too many yellow/orange band choice, it's good to have one black and no need to think what it is.
