I've always attached my tubes to tabs and then attached the tabs to the frame. I've seen a lot of tab setups where the tabs are very solidly (semi permanently) attached to the frame, so I'm thinking the tubes are attached while the tabs are in place on the frame. Seems like that would be a bit fidgety to me. Just curious if anyone uses the latter method?

If possible I choose to anchor my tabs to the frame. I will keep a second or third identical set on hand if I either have a tube/band break or I want to change calibers. I also think that I enhance my accuracy this way because my wrap-n-tie still feels a little fumbly. View attachment 376693 View attachment 376694
Oh boy!
That looks real nice.
Good thinking for quick changeouts.

Super nice frame. Looks like it means business.

I have a similar setup on a few of my frames.

For me about as simple as I can get. The Chalice design is definitely a no-nonsense design. Tabs and tubes aren’t the favorite of the younger generation of shooters. The real old dogs live by wrap-n-tuck, followed by tabs-n-tubes and flats.

What I really like are the WHY?? conversations regarding using tabs of any type. I just cannot answer that question. I have convinced myself that they are quieter and are more forgiving in regards to accuracy and band/tube life. But honestly getting a firm consensus on the ‘why’ often leads to dramatic debates!

Nice and a smart idea!
Any speed loss with the use of tabs?
