Hi mate I'd recommend 23-18mm for that draw length, should shoot 9.5mm at about 240fps. 20-15mm would be fine too

Thanks heaps would a slightly wider taper like 25 - 20 enhance that speed, or is 240 fps fast enough for hunting, that's assuming proper shot placement

I think if you went any wider than that you'd be looking to shoot some heavier
ammo I reckon. To go much faster you'd have to go for a longer draw, but that is more than enough for hunting purposes

Yeah it's a great channel, love watching it, so do a few others it seems ! He has designed a few slingshots/cattys too which he sells on Facebook, cool stuff! I'd say cut one at 27-22 and try it out, if you find it too heavy, give 25-20 a go and if you find the same, try the 23-18. That way you can see what agrees with you the best. As for power, all of these tapers will do the job with 9.5mm steel for rabbits, pigeons, squirrels with correct shot placement.
