No other shooting sport compares.
I just put some of the thera bands on the A+ slingshot I had shipped as replacements with the slingshot. Dude .. those things are DEADLY! I love it.
They are definitely different. Yellow is the second-weakest Theraband with tan being the weakest. Gold is the heaviest. Yellow is fine for a young kid's first slingshot. I started my 10 year old grandson at 9 inches of yellow, cut back to 8 after a week, and soon to go to 7. It also works great in a 4 tube configuration, pulling about the same as green 2 tube, but with what seems to me to be higher velocity.
Hey Dan,Perry, I like that you offer bands of different types of elastic. It makes for a different feel and suits most tastes. What about butterfly shooters? Have you considered cutting some long bands in a thinner Thera-band?
Two different thicknesses man. I would recommend gold even for target shooting, its what most guys use when it comes to theraband. The gold lasts the longest due to its thickness and is a lot less of a hassle when attaching to pouch and forks.
