Wow I just chrony my slingbow after a lot of testing and experimenting.Its been a long haul iwas not happy with 155fps 165fps or 180fps.I kept trying different rubber setups one inside of another 3/4 the length of the outer tube to give it a tapered effect.Loop tubes.I figured out a cocktail that works.I would show yall a video with me chronying it but don't have camera.I can for sure take this one deer hunting.

No. This is truly the real thing I use Rolyan green tubing cut 14inches with dk1745 cut 8inches.Put the 8 inches inside the rolyan dub dub center it equally and loop it.You need to secure the 1745 to the green so it will be tapered string don't work,You come back about a inch from the end of the 1745 stretch it good and zip tie it.It will not have any effect no more than string,there is a lot of force on this connection  This is a looped tube setup with a simpleshot d-loop serving.Thanks for the reply.Let me no how you did.I am using a 31in victory carbon arrow with a 500 spine and a 100gr tip.I believe I am the first to get this kind of speed that you can actually control it and aim.Let me know

Draw a picture.
I don't understand.
Are you taking 15 inches green dub. Cutting it in half and and fishing a 8" piece of 1745 though the center of the green dub. for each side of your fork.
Don't undestand the loop.

depending on draw length.I use a 16 in piece of dub dub on each fork folded into a loop .I fish a 10 in piece of 1745 and center it that leaves 3in without 1745 on the ends.That tapers it.You must secure the  dud dud to the the 1745 real tight a **** good string knot or zip tie.Go about 1in from the end of the 1745 and tie it there that will make the 1745 pull with the dub dub to give it the taper.I also use 1842 the same way if you want a lighter pull still 200fps.I have been chrony orange dub dub with 1745 at 215fps.I am liking green with 1842 because the pull is better to control.The orange with 1745 I have hit 220 they both are very fast,depending on your preference. I would make a video of me chronying them but don't have a camera.Keep in contact let me no how you did.Thanks for reply.

I got it. Don't have chrony but do have other sling bows to conspire distances with. So far with standard arrow on a good warm day. I'd get in nighborhood 130 to 140 yards from it. I know faster bows will shoot farther. Had a black widow recurve that would do 280 to 300 yards with standard hunting arrow with target tip. No other non compound bow I've ever had would do more then like 170 yards. May take two or three day, but I'll let you know how it turns out.

Mr Wilkins
You are correct. Your band set fastest I've shot.
Longest distance with your band set. 170 yards.
The 7/16 id.. 3/32 wall black tube I tested it with got 137 yards for its longest distance.IMAG0549.jpg

That's great man love the pics that's how mine look. You should give the orange a try to see what you like best.Your green is probably getting around average of 210fps.It depends on your arrow weight.keep me informed.I bought a chrony at academy for 95.00 a Caldwell it works great.Thanks keep getting faster!

I had a chrony app on my smartphone. You have to plug in the range and set a timer to fire. It records the sound at release and the sound at impact and by way of the mathematialicalisis.. presto, a fairly accurate reading on FPS. 

Nice setup. I made a water balloon launcher using the doubled up tubing also. It launches some heat... cant really use it on my kids unless I want to spend a week or two in the pokey.

I am stunned. May I ask for the draw weight and arrow weight (shaft PLUS tip, I don't find: '...31in victory carbon arrow with a 500 spine...), tube life time?

Congratulations, A-Ping
