So are the 5080 tubes the most powerful?

Yes they are the 'most powerful' from Dankung, however this does not necessarily mean they are the fastest for any given size and weight of ammo.

Matching the right bands to your ammo is they key to achieving maximum performance.

Personally I would only consider 5080's if I was shooting BIG ammo.

Double 2040's and single 1745's are my preferred tubes for my favourite 9.5mm steel ammo. Double 1745's are awesome for 12mm lead.

Should be fine. It's similar to TB red which has proved to be nice and effective.

Awesome sticky - thanks Hrawk. Just what a noob like me needs when researching which tubes to use for which application.

Does anybody know the corresponding sizes of the more common commercial western tubes like Trumark and Barnett? Would be great to have info on those for comparison too...

If not, is it a case of getting a sample of each and using a micrometer, as I can't find the info elsewhere.

Pretty much. If anyone does manage to get measurements on any other tubes I don't have, drop me a PM and I will add them in.

Very useful chart! Using the supplied cross sections backs up my trial and error findings.
My three favorite tube setups are: single 3060s, doubled 2040s, and single Theraband Yellow. These fall in a range of 3.5mm (15% or so) with 2040s on the low end and TBY on the high.
Thanks Hrawk!
