It depends on how much you taper it, how far you draw it, how you tie it, what the climate is like, etc. My own experiments with 100% latex bands of a similar thickness (.35mm vs 0.30mm) have been discouraging. I currently feel it is too thin and that a thicker band can be tapered more and drawn further so the performance is not so different.

thank u mates!
josephlys, zdp is right in what he writes!
this bandset is designed to find out what is the minimum to hit a target in 9 to 15 meter with a 10mm steelball.
it is 19,5cm long and tapert 4cm to 2cm. my drawleght is 110cm. i use a extrem lightwight pouche. i am able to hit targets with .45 steelball in 15 meter with excelent precision! this bandset last about 2 ore 6oo shot! if it is usefull using this thin bands? i don´t know! i am able to hit the target with the same precision which are 4 times stronger! the bigest problem of thin bands are inviromental influences! little bit sun, little bit sand ore dust and the tear!
