Agreed on the TBG.  For a flying beast of a SS, I might start with 1.25" to .75" tapered Theraband Gold. -CD

If you had access to .40 latex sheet; cut it the same way; that would a great match.  If you had .20 latex sheet you could make double

tappered's; they are very fast.  Latex sheet is one of my favorite SS band materials. - CD

On ammo size, you want to match the bands.  That is, if you have excessive forward band momentum, use larger ammo or decrease your band size.  Make sure your bands are the same as much as possible.  I have re-tied pouches more than once, to get the correct "valley".

 

As for your part on accuracy, SS shooting is not easy.  It comes more easily to some than most, a few being fantastic at it.  First you have to decide how you want to shoot.  Are you sighting with the top of the SS or are you a push -pull point shooter.  Whether you call this "instinctive" I will not go there.  We all "aim" at the target.  Some will critically use sighting points on their SSs.  Others will just point, pull and shoot.

 

My method of teaching point pull and shoot is the 10/10 method.  A 10" paper plate at 10feet.  Find your stance.  this is so important to begin with.  Relax.  Hold your SS up near your chest

and push the SS toward the center of the plate while you pull the pouch to your anchor point; (you have to decide your anchor point)  The moment this feels right, release.  Do not hold for more han 1 second.  Just relax and rip up the plate.  As you begin to feel comfortable, move the plate back to 15', then reduce your target size and so on.  

For the "goose" you want to rotate the pouch 90 degrees as it is a OTT shooter.  I would shoot the goose with forks at approx 2:30 to 3:00, as I hold the pouch vertically at my cheek anchor

the pouch is automatically rotated.

 

To me, this is how to shoot a SS.  This would not be how one might shoot a target SS or another's personal style may be totally different.  Some pull really far back, some have a very low anchor,   I have a little BB shooter I cannot make shoot unless I anchor at my eye.  You just have to find your style and shoot shoot shoot. -CD
