that is so strange isn't it?As was said, watch your tubes for signs of wear and damage. I sometimes get a small tear in the tube close to the taper loop. This sometime happens when I'm shooting them close to max stretch. Sometimes the tear happens at the pouch end. Toss the tubes when you see a tear or split.
I have never been smacked by a broken tube. They often break after the shot rather than during the draw.
Kinda freaked me out the first few times this happened. The shot goes off just fine, but when I look down to reload only one side of the bandset is attached. Well, guess it's time for a new set. I'd love to see a slow motion of this type of failure to see just how this phenomenon occurs.They often break after the shot rather than during the draw.
