Hard hitting looped tubular bands setup for shooting arrows from The Hammer slingbow.
Includes the SimpleShot exclusive finger pinch release built on a 14 strand B50 loop and served with .019" serving string for perfect nock fit. If you prefer using a mechanical release, simply remove the leather finger tab and you are good to go! Capable of shooting hunting weight arrows 145-170fps (depending users draw length). Standard is approximately 36# @28" Heavy approximately 40#@28"
DO NOT USE WITH BLACK OCULARIS PLUGS.
After about ten shots the d loop failed while drawing the arrow causing it to launch off target I never found that arrow.
Slings arrows pretty darn good :-)
Did not like the way they sit always twisted makeing it hard to nock arrow
These are a great improvement over the original bands. Mainly due to the serving which makes it easy to nock the arrow.
Excellent Quality! Exactly what I expected. Andy and Nathan are the Best!
I'm running the bands uncut, which provides 8" of static band length. When drawn just past my ear lobe, I'm stretching the bands to only about 400% (32"). That was my anchor point for my chrony work. Compared to a normal SS pouch hold, you lose about 2-1/2 inches of draw when holding the paracord leather pull-tab on this slingbow bandset. I might try shortening the paracord by an inch or more. When the tapered bands wear out and likely tear at the pouch, I'll cut them shorter and see how much more speed I gain at my more typical 500% latex stretch factor!
Still, I saw some impressive numbers. I measured my draw effort at about 25 lbs and I got over 130 fps with 175 gr. field points (442 gr. total arrow weight) and over 140 fps with 100 gr. field points (367 gr. total arrow weight). That's about 17 ft-lbs and 16 ft-lbs, respectively, with only 400 percent band stretch on a 58 degree F day!
