As a follow on from testing the Precise gen3 0.45, I decided to see what a 0.10 band thickness would make.

Interestingly, not a lot of difference to the 6mm (1/4") steels. However with the clays, well see for yourself ????

Temperature 21C 70(F)
Draw 775mm (30")

Slingshot Wasp Stinger OTT
Pouch HTH Indigo Microfiber BP1 47x12mm

Precise gen3 1510 150 0.55

Clay 10mm avg (25/64" avg) avg 265.22 fps

6mm (1/4") steels avg 262.88 fps

The speeds for 6mm (1/4") steel are very close. How would you compare the draw weights of the two bands? Also, does one band feel smoother to draw than the other?

Precise 0.45 Gen3 15x10x150
Clay 10mm avg --- avg 257.83 fps
6mm (1/4") steels --- avg 260.44 fps

Precise 0.55 Gen3 15x10x150
Clay 10mm avg --- avg 265.22 fps
6mm (1/4") steels --- avg 262.88 fps

0.55 feels like a much heavier draw, have some scales on the way to find out exact draw weights.

Smoothness is about the same.

Strangely, possibly due to slight variations in clay size, two of the Clay's went at just over 270 fps. Fortunately over a sample of 15 shots it did effect the figures to any real significance.

I think for 6mm and clays, the Precise gen3 0.45 is perfectly up to the job for speed and lighter draw. I suspect the 0.55 will have a longer band life.
