Hey Sandstorm -
Man, it shoots beautifully with the new bands. I've just been practicing with plastic balls inside so far, but it throws them fast and accurately. I went back to the Trumark I have and I couldn't believe how much those tubes make it rattle and bang against your wrist and forearm, even when holding it tightly. Pulling back the bands on the P51 was so easy in comparison. Am also amazed how much bending the forearm support made a difference. IMO, it's a must. Really liking it. I'm going to stick with the wrap and tuck method, and ordered some black Thera tubing so I can keep the blacked out look.
