Things I liked: This one blows the stock replacement away! Hands down no question asked!If you got to replace band,always get the best! Thank you have a great day!
Things I would have changed: Nothing!
Things I liked: I bought these as a replacement for an older model Marksman slingshot. I bought them because they were listed to be easier to pull back and shoot (I am teaching my kids to shoot). They work great. My kids pull these back with ease. Easy to install and set up.
Things I would have changed: I bought two of these. One came with a magnet ammo holder. The magnet works well with the 3/8 ammo however I found it didn't matter or was more difficult with the smaller 1/4 ammo, and the plastic and glass marbles. I ended up removing the magnet and am happier now without it.
What others should know: a little pricy for a replacement band. for two dollars more i could have bought a new slingshot
Things I liked: Very durable. Comes with extra yoke caps! (My old ones were damaged.) The taper lives up to the marketing hype. Less pull tension, with higher velocit. I verified it with a tension scale and chronograph, and compared to the similar Marksman yellow 3330 band.
Things I would have changed: The magnet and patch need to be completely removed from the product and forgotten for eternity. There is no way to consistently grip the pouch with the big disk of leather sewn in there. Ammo flies out every which way. (By the way, a magnet won't hold glass ammo, Marksman.) It's a stupid idea and makes the otherwise excellent band useless until it is removed. Luckily it can be removed easily. Just take a razor and cut the dozen or so stitches from the patch and it will just pull off. Once the magnet and patch are removed, you have an excellent, tapered band, and you have a cool, little, super-strong magnet to play with (or you can use it as your first piece of ammo). I just wish I didn't have to pay for that patch and magnet.
What others should know: My experiments show that the taper bands have an advantage. I think it's because they carry less weight at the end of the band that moves at the highest velocity. The difference is greater when the ammo gets smaller. But even with 5/8" marbles there is still an advantage.
