4 months ago i started out with homemade tree forks , progressed by buying a basic OTT form and bands, and now shoot every day with various bands ...tapered,tb silver,black,blue and some chinese rubbish which is heavy yellow,putrid orange and puky green.
i,m in a funky and frustrated point in my developent and need some help and the reason is the youtube goat "torsten"...
i have copied every detail as close as possible and still cant get the high speeds this wizard attains !..
im useing tb blue cut EXACTLY like he tells us in his 2 videos, pouch is 45 mm x 12mm wide(super light),strongest cotton constrictor knots,no drag there, 7mm ammo,
OTT annd 290mm long.Butterfly.
i cant get past 92.4 m/s (300 fps)...
so now i have arrived at this deduction or possibilities.
1...my chrony is misreading?..chinese crap
2...torstens chrony is misreading(DOUBT THAT)!!!
3.The band rubber is imatation and not theraband proper...(ebay chinese).
im targeting 125m/s but would be happy to reach 110 at this point in time....
has anyone a way of contacting torsten.???
tb gold red and more blue on the way from china via ebay at the moment for more speed trials....
cheers alpmouse

Torsten wow! I haven't heard that name in years. I'm not sure he is very active. Sadly, I haven't been able to keep up with the European shooters very well. But welcome to the forum. If I had to guess, I'd say Torsten was defo using proper Theraband.
