    As soon as the band tieing jig arrived I started tieing bands. Before I newit all the pouches and bands were all tied. Can't wait to break some bands and do some more lol. Sling shots are a fun and usefull hobby. Tieing bands with this jig is all most as much fun as shooting.

    band jig

    Posted by howard on Mar 14th 2016

    I really like this jig but wish the pegs where a bit taller bec I like the wrap and tuck for my bands. And with the short pegs makes it tuff to warp with out the pegs popping out. But others then that I like the set up

    Works GREAT

    It took a LONG time to get to Ontario Canada but I just received it and clamps held the rubber band and pouch very well while I tied both ends. I used it as soon as I opened the package. Everything arrived that I ordered and worked well. Just a little trouble learning the knot but finally figured it out. I actually taped the knot instructions to the board and that worked well.

    Bandset jig

    Overall a nice system to tie your bandsets. The one gripe I have is that the peg holes are too big and the pegs don't go down and grip the board. I did put some tape on the ends which solved that. I may try to see if I have some bigger dowels to replace the ones that came with it.

    Good value for the money! You get enough band sets to almost pay for it!

    I'm really impressed by this simple jig. It makes tying band sets a breeze. Also, all the variety of bands that come with the jig alone make it worth ordering. Perfection.

    Makes tying bands a breeze

    The title says it all. This rig makes tying your own bands a breeze. I have only made two so far, but they both are holding up great. I love that there is a slot for scissors and the twine, helps keep everything in one place when more bands are needed. I also love that it comes with a sampling of different band types, it's a great way to see what bands work best with what ammo and which fork. Another quality product from Simple Shot.

    The DIY Bandset Starter Kit

    Posted by Robert O. on May 1st 2015

    The DIY Bandset Starter Kit is ok, not quite as it shows in the video. Only one notch in the wood for scissors, on both sides. Also, the string does not set well in the set, little to no room between string and other notches with the clamps. Will do the trick, but probably should have just made one, for a lot cheaper.

    Its OK

    Posted by Ryan A. on May 1st 2015

    I don't have time to build my own. Its just OK. You should supply hemp string or something better than none rated cotton string.
