Yes just run them short and you will have plenty of speed. :)

I have a Daisy F16. I am new to this forum and a relative novice to slingshotting. I want to replace the tubes on this slingshot and need some advice on what size and type of tubing to use. I called Daisy and they said the size is 3/8 surgical tubing. I do not know if that is inner diameter or outer. This will be used for target shooting and light hunting. Thank you for your help.

Check my post under "Slingshot Modifications" on the F-16 The F-16 tube set is WAAAAY to heavy for good shooting, Check YouTube and PFS shooters post on it and see what he says.

 

The metal rod that that Daisy is made out of is good, and modifications can be done to shoot bands or tubes. As you can see I took off the grips and para-corded it, so now it is a thin carry sling and can be set up for great power and portability.

 

I will have more pics tomorrow to show the band set up I have on it.

Thanks Wll.  The modifications look great.  I bought 2 of them and may try that with one.  I agree the stock tubing is too short and stiff.   What tube brand and size would be an optimal fit for function on the F16 metal rod?

I'm still experimenting big time as I'm getting back into this game after about a 20 year lay off ;- )

 

My mounting of the bands have a few modifications to what you see and I will post them as soon as I can. The one is  for sure, the rubber when ran through the loop at the fork end MUST be tied to the body of the fork. It is a very fast and easy thing to do and stops the rubber from backing out. The rubber from the F-16 is over the forks and a small piece (1/4-3/8's) will be over the double bands near the middle just to  try to keep the tubes from tangling.

 

Also, because I am so lazy the think I will forgo the pseudo tube thing and just go with looped tubes. I have 1745 and the 2050's are on their way. I have some of Tex's light tubes and may use them on another sling I have.

 

I will not be using the leather pouch that came with the sling as it is heavier than my kitchen sink, I feel it will slow velocity down quite a bit. I will be using a pouch from Tex or Ray ... both fine pouches for sure.

 

I will post these on my F-16 post when I can get a free moment.

Great information.....but here is my dilemma I have been searching an answer for. I will be using Dankung 2050. For a 30" draw, how long should the bands be from the rear of a Rambone sling?

I would add that a larger cross-section makes for a heavier draw but not necessarily a faster band. Fatter tubes are better for large ammo but more layers of thinner tube will be faster. For example I would almost guarentee that 4-strand (one loop per side) 1842 is faster than 2-strand (one tube per side) 3060 even though the total amount of rubber is comperable.
It's all about matching bands to ammo.
8-strand 2040 (two loops per side) is the bomb, though B)

Thanks a lot for the precious info!!
Could you please tell me where can i find in the forum the secton (if there is) where there teach how to make the loops starti g from scratch? The best is if i can (have the same like you) buy from simpleshot.com "ready to mount" but the same size/combo as the one on the pic above.

I am newbie and i just ordered a Dankung Panther wich will arrivevin few days
