So, for all of you that already got the new gen, how does it compare to the old one? I am contemplating getting a roll, but if it isnt better, I think I'll pass.
Is it softer? More durable?

I hope they are good. It'll be nice to find one elastic and keep using it exclusively :)

First bands done :headbang:

Cutting mat Blue Motor vehicle Aircraft Table


Now clock is 17.00 and it's too dark outdoors to really shoot anything but couple shots to tree (25 m, 9.75 mm steel ) felt so promising.

Is it an easier draw than the old one?

Band measurements:

Old red 0,7: 1"- 3/4", 23 cm. Used active length 16,5 cm

New gen 0,7: 1"-3/4", 21 cm. Used active length 15,0 cm. This is where I start with this band. Suitable active (for me) can change.

With these measurements I can say, that draw is easier and more GZK like.

More shooting tomorrow if not too rainy weather.

Had to do my shootings in the basement (after 20 shots in the rain, +5°C).

These bands are more like new orange GZK than Precise Red and yes, I like it :thumbsup:

Can't do any speed tests because of weather, but these bands are not slow by any means.

Skropi, if You get a roll, I'm quite sure that You will not regret it.

Thanks Kalevala. I will get a roll for sure. Let's hope it's durable as well!
