Hi - I am new to the forum, got into catapulting during the first lockdown and now pretty much hooked, shoot OTT, shoot 6mm, 8mm & 10mm steel BBs on different set ups, enjoy making own bands and trying different tapers & set ups. I live in suburbia and practice shoot down the garden 25 yrds/21 meters, I am doing my best to be discrete and not piss off the neigbours with the thwaking of the BBs on the back stop. Have got a heavy tight woven cotton camo sheet that does not damage but does thwack especially when wet (in Manchester we rarely have a week without rain...rarely) then to catch/slow the BBs tried curtain netting which lasted a short time, then got the green woven "wind proof netting " for around new garden plants or on scaffolding which stops the noise but the BBs soon open it up and the thwaking on the backstop sheet builds. Anyone got good ideas for long lasting silent BB stops/slowers?
