Ok. First of all, i didn't find any clear topics to my problem, so here we go..

When i started to shoot with slings, my anchor point was next to my mouth. After that, it was under my ear.

Now i think that most natural style for me is half(?)butterfly. Draw is about 115cm or 45 inches.

Now the question. How do i cut my bands? How thick band? Where and how to start? And what comes to ammo, i use 9.5mm or 3/8 steel and m8 hex nuts, so weight range is about 3gr-5gr. And finally the most important, closest thing to all NEWBIES: how much fps can i reach in theory? (Still on fps hunting stage, forget the accuracy lol).

Thanks.

Thanks for answer skropi.

Can you open this halfbutterfly more to me.

"If you really like speed, shoot 3/4 butterfly, it's a nice compromise between full butterfly, which is a bit fiddly for me, and the shorter draw lengths."

Is my 115cm drawlenght considered as a half butterfly or more or less?

Ok now i get it. I think 3/4 is close to my technique.

So 0.60-0.70 seems to be best option for all styles just different cuts and lenghts.

Thanks a lot. Now i only have 1mm gzk...have to figure out how to cut it. Maybe 10/10 and still experience hand slaps..:)

Yep. It's very powerful. Kalevala told me to cut it 15/10 and it's very good like that with short draw. Maybe i try to cut it 13/8 and 26cm(10 inch) active lenght and see can i pull it 3/4 butterfly..

@skropi First i was kind of frustrated, now i like to test different setups. :)

@flipgun you're so right. Earlier yesterday i was worried about that. In beginning i thought it's just a one sling, one band set made from a ripped gym ball, couple on hex nut's and all good..

I was so wrong...soon i need to build entire new wall to organize my stuff..lol :D
