I regularly shoot thera band gold. I have used it for many band sets so I kinda know how to cut it for my application. As long as it is not too cold it is a fine way to move projectiles down range. I can get it quickly and fairly cheaply so I pretty much always have it on hand. Honestly I have a few frames that just seem to shoot more accurately with tbg, probably all in my head, but accuracy is accuracy. So in my opinion it is still a worthwhile band material, even in this age of super bands.
