How many shots should I roughly be getting with the obvious fact that it will vary between band sets. I'm currently only getting about 400ish shots out of my bands and am disappointed with this. I am using single TBG 25-20mm tapers. I know theraband is pretty bad and I am ordering some GZK but I still want to get the most out of the rest of the theraband that I have. Shooting 10mm clay balls which are a bit light for the taper which could be a factor. I cut all my bands at 17cm with the pouch tie and fork ties in mind so about 15.5cm of active band length. So how many shots y'all getting out of a set?

It would seem that you can't have it all in one set of bands. Shooting clay is making the bands snap back kind of like a stock whip.
On the other hand 3/8 steel will give you kill power. I would suggest two sets of bands. Maybe one or the other rolled up in a pill bottle.
Don't take that much to change over when needed. Just my 2cents worth.
PS: 400ish shots ain't that bad.
Alright cheers bud.
