anybody tie their OTT bands like this,i don't speak Spanish so I don't know exactly what is being said but the illustration is enough,i tried tieing this way and it seems to work really well
i tied 2 sets of bands,both 1/2 in x 8 in,one stretched and the other just tied,both with constricter knots [cotton ] on almost identical SS,so we will find out,i am keeping track of shot size and numbers of shots,will shoot till they give out and let you all know,i have noticed the *lateral* tieing seems to improve my accueracy with OTT ,so there may be something to this after all,lol.I also noticed that he did not stretch the bands before tying. Could that also reduce band breakage?

I will watch for this also,although even with the just tieing there was a minute amount of stretch involved,hmmmmId say stick with stretching first. In my tests with tying wwithout stretching, it just allowed the band to move position on the pouch, adding a point of inconsistency. I didnt see any difference in band life, I did have to re adjust the pouch every 10 shots.
Even just the little stretch I give without having a tying jig seems to help so much. Even if I got 10-15% extra life, the inconveinience wasnt worth it for me.
