I suppose there is a first time for everything and I had one of those occurrences today.. Set me up with 4 str Thera Gold, I'm a beast!


Anybody else ever done this? Just ripped as I was pulling it back.. It was on a bandset I don't use that much.. Now I see why..

Never done that-But i did tear the center outa my Dankung Genral while i was a speed shooting yesterday, I think I actually did it while shooting hex nuts, was seein how fast I could shoot, soo sure did mess up the pouch, hadda trash it, git a new one, probly had couple thousand shots on it so can't complain, shootin rocks, screws, bolts, nails, sometimes even actual round ammo

Yeah, you have to match the pouch strength to the band.

Are those Black Thera tubes? No wonder the pouch broke, 2 black Thera tubes each side is a very strong slingshot! 2 Black Thera tubes are significantly higher pull weight than 1 Silver Thera tube.

Nope. Those are 2040 tubes. The last bandset that I had made from Dankung.. I never used it cause I thought it was a bit short..

I had the same problem with one of my pouches I made today the reason.I was making a six strand 1745* but for easy fitting instead of three individual holes each end of the pouch I made one large slot each end but it was too close to the edge of the pouch which severely weakened the pouch it did not last long three shots and I had to bury it.
