Some pics of slingshots we use in Czech Republic. ( 2 x 5x5mm and 6mm)
The square rubber is mainly used because of its low price and still good quality,but unfortunately dicreasing very fast.
I have bought a new elastic today,fixed it but didn´t test it for the moment,think it will be more powerfull than the grey one...to be continued.







by the way,square rubber needs a special treatement,stretch them for some hours to get better elasticity/performance,put some vegetal oil on ,it also helps and they will last much longer .

(25 cm stretched to 125 cm )


Some shots with both slingshots at 2 meters,off course double bands are better but we can´t see the difference here,every ones went through very easily and made a big noise in the wall behind.



Need to find something to be able to compare the power with gold flatbands .( not a motocycle helmet
)

Hi Pavel,
I'm curious, how many shots on average are you getting with those cube(square bands) and what type (size) ammo do you shoot? A test I did years ago showed they (cubes) last longer then all other band types. Flatband

Hello Flat
,

i am using marbles,steel balls (10-15mm ) and some home made lead ammo you can see on the pics....for the moment i have made only aroud 500 shots but cubic rubber last very very long,even if you are a slingshot maniac
I will told you if it breaks but think it not will be this year .

It is interesting that square bands are readily available in Central America and other parts of the world, but are difficult to find in the US and Canada. I wonder why that is? Do the square bands have a use other than slingshots in the Czech Republic?

Cheers ........ Charles

I have never used this kind of bands. I wish, I could have the chance to use them. Saludos
