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.
Things I liked:easier draw, velocity increase is noticeable
Things I would have changed:maybe a different color
What others should know:tried these once about ten years ago, and since then i've replaced the factory bands with these on both of my slingshots. i won't even use the factory bands anymore. these are kinda like a compound bow, less pull but more speed. whether you hunt or just like shooting slingshots, you should definitely try these, you won't go back. put a drop of rubbing alcohol on the tip of the vinyl thing to get the band to slide on easier
Things I liked:Product is fine
Things I would have changed:I do not like the magnet in the leather ammo holder. I shoot marbles not steel ammo thanks Dennis
