I've got my old Marksman Wrist-Rocket from the late 70's and it was all basically stock. With heavy bands you can feel the pain in the wrist and I have the built-in lump just behind my wrist from shooting this heavily for so many years. It's been my go too forever and the only one that has never broken, even after over 40 years.

After paracording my Saunders Wing yesterday, I took 8 feet of 6mil paracord and wrapped it over the existing rubber wrist brace and then took it out and shot it for the rest of the afternoon because it was so enjoyable with the pain gone. Paracord is amazing and so is this simple Cobra-Stitch Mod that adds just the right amount of love to Ol'Faithful :)
It will work on any old school aluminum frame, just stretch the paracord as tight as you can and keep pushing it together to keep the cord wrapped as close and as tight as possible.

Before -
Automotive lighting Luggage and bags Eyewear Bag Gas


After -
Organism Glove Electric blue Wrist Fashion accessory

Military camouflage Electric blue Human leg Camouflage Fur

Automotive tire Woolen Electric blue Art Rope


And a little history that I got after putting in the patent #
Organism Font Art Circle Slope

Here's a video on how to do it.
Just forget the loop that he is wrapping everything around. Put a tight granny knot right next to the rubber arm insulator and then make square knot after square knot to the other side. Leave 5/16" tabs exposed after cutting the cord and then light one end on fire and watch it burn and melt down, until its got a small nub sticking up out of the melting plastic. Then with the small flame on the paracord still burning, take a credit card sized thick piece of paper or a plastic spoon or knife, and spread the melting plastic up and away from the bottom, while pushing it up into the next cord. This glues the melting cord into the next one up and it leaves it a bit rough at first. This is why you move the melt away from where your arm will be. Then rub the area with your fingers to clean it up and smooth out the rough spots... do the same thing on the nub that you left on the other side... Then go have some fun with it.
It's really simple and makes this style of Wrist-Rocket really comfortable to shoot even with heavy bands or tubes.
