I spent quite a bit of time gathering chronograph numbers for various band combos and ammo weights for my Pickle Fork Shooters. All shooting was a 28" draw length. The testing was repeated severals times to ensure accuracy.
Notes of interest
- THB = Theraband Black; TBS = Theraband Silver; TBG = Theraband Gold; Tex = .030" Hygenic Latex
- Ammo Weights - Crosman BB = 5 gr; 1/4" steel = 16 gr; 5/16" steel = 32 gr; 3/8" steel = 56 gr
- All bands were adjusted to 7 1/4" from pouch to fork.
- Tex bands and TBG were identical in power. I duplicated the testing several times with all ammo types and the results were always within 1 or 2 fps either way. Possibly one band would excel with heavier pulling bands, heavier ammo or a longer draw length.
