Hi and thank you, so in total....4cm on each rubber, do I understand well?

That should be a good place to start- and after trying that you should pretty quickly figure out if you want to add or take a bit off from either end.Hi and thank you, so in total....4cm on each rubber, do I understand well?

If you become like many here you will

Go thru many bandsets and find your

active (relaxed) length, and for each frame configuration and prefered pouch attachment just how much longer to mark and cut.

And if feels to long but still functions go

ahead and shoot until taper breaks at pouch then measure trim reattach and shoot more.

1. The maximum stretch coefficient of latex

2. the distance from the slingshot to the reference point (active length).

I put marks on a test piece of latex at a distance of 10 cm from each other and stretch it "as far as it will go". I measure the distance between the marks when it is stretched.

Next, using my own example.

My active length is 82 cm.

Let's assume that the maximum stretch coefficient of latex is 6.

To get the maximum performance, I take the stretch coefficient 0.5-1 less than the maximum and calculate the working length of the tape.

82: (6-1)=16.4 cm. I round up to 16.5, add allowances for tying the pouch and for tying the slingshot, and get the length of the workpiece.

If you want to get tapes with a longer life, I use a factor of 1.5-2 less than the maximum. That is.

82: (6-1,5)=18,2. cm. Rounded up to 18 cm.
