One 2 metre roll.
1mm Great White…
Extremely pleased to introduce the first fully customised band in the UK (I believe) This band has been completely custom made to order for us here at Catty Shack. A good powerful hunting band, for ball sizes from 11mm steel, up to 14mm steel at closer ranges.
In further testing, consistent speeds of 249fps were achieved with a 25/20 taper, using 11mm steel balls, and dividing my draw length by 5.2. As the better weather begins, these speeds will only improve! This is not a harsh, stiff band. A very smooth draw for it’s thickness.
To find the correct band length, a good starting point is to divide your draw length by 5. Be aware that in hot weather you may need to decrease this to 4.75 or maybe even less, and in cold weather possibly increase it past 5.2 As the temperature increases, the elasticity of band becomes less, so your active length will generally need lengthening. Similarly as the temperature drops in the winter months, band becomes more stretchy, so to maintain velocity bands are made a little shorter usually. This is the same for every band on the market.
0.85 Great White…
This band displays the exact same stretch ratio as the 1mm, so all of the above applies here. In speed testing this band was achieving a consistent average speed of 239fps with 11mm steel. This band is ideally used for balls of 9.5mm steel / 9mm lead, up to 12mm steel. I feel the sweet spot is 10mm lead / 11mm steel.
