Hey all :)  today at the local Michael's store I found some marbles that are about 3/8 inch.  I bought 12 ounces for a little over 3 dollars. I am thinking they would be great to shoot indoors and at short ranges out doors.  I think the 3/8 size, being the same size as the steel I shoot, will keep the "feel" the same.  However they are light so they won't carry very far.  

 

What do you all think?  Have you ever tried lighter than usual ammo?

You might feel a little variation in size on some but they shoot great.

Cool, the 1632 band sets are they single strand or looped?  Thanks :)

Single 1632s works for butterfly. Pseudo taper or doubles for drawing to an anchor.

At least, that works for me.
