Anyone else experience this? The lettering on the band set started coming off and seemed to really throw off my shooting. Whether it was the bands or me I don't know but it just seems weird and I've never had it happen before.

Hmmm... I have not had that... normally the lettering just fades off. It must be a different method of print used? What you have there would annoy me enough to just sacrifice the portion of rubber with the branding. If it peels like that, it is not part of the rubber or it hasn't been integrated well enough on to the rubber and I suspect the letters will not stretch the same as the rubber it's stuck on? Hence the thrown shots? But if it comes off like that, it might be possible to simply clean/peel everything off with a little patience? Or I would start from the other end so I won't have to deal with the lettering and when I get to the end of the roll it might just be part of the unusable excess anyway?

I have had this before. but only with GZK band. It is probably because he buys the product and then sticks his brand name on afterwards.

So like urbanshooter said, the letters will not stretch the same as the rubber it's stuck on to.

I find the more you stretch, the worse it gets.

You could send a note of this to your supplier, and then maybe he could do something about it when he orders his next batch.

A recent roll of GZK green did the same to me. the White lettering peeled off easily once the edges started to lift and I have seen no noticeable effects on performance.
