I decided that I want to try tubes so I cut theta and red tubes in half with a rotary cutter and tied them on. So far all I can say is that I love this idea. I don't have a chrome so if anyone would be willing to test these and review them I would be so happy.IMG_0364.JPG IMG_0365.JPG

You mean a Chrono?

As for testing, I'm not willing to cut mine.

You can review them without testing ft/s.

Yes I like the speed I am getting with 3/8 however I don't have a crony to test. I haven't had them long enough to test band life however after 50 shots the still look the same.

Check out pfshooter on YouTube. You may find his videos interesting. He gets excellent results with a similar rig.

They broke at about 500 but could've been cut and retied. Best with rocks and marbles. Hope that helps

I only had 1 large enough section of tube and it was still a little short. I just went very slowly and carefully with my rotary cutter. Theraband red and the are like drawing only 1 normal tube.

Thanks for the post gabeb, I have about 12' of red tube from the VA Hospital.  Really for heavy ammo, but, cutting them in half is a great idea, if I can be as accurate cutting as you.  Good thinking on your part.

Sorry for a late reply. I didn't have enough and it was short so I thought being smaller I could draw them further. I took my time with a rotary cutter and straightened the band while rolling the blade forwards slowly. Yes theraband red tubing. Yes the draw lighter( is that what u asked?)
