RR2 SLINGSHOT BANDS
Heavy Pull - 5 / 64"wall thickness x 8.6" L
THE ONLY HEAVY-PULL BAND SOLD IN USA!

In 1953 Trumark® was the first to use high-quality, dipped latex (non-extruded) tubing as "powerbands" on slingshot frames made from round, aluminum rods. All Trumark slingshots are powered by surgical tubing. The tubing is attached to the leather pouch with light-weight, hollow, pin connectors.

For maximum power, striations in latex tubing should run parallel ==== to the length of the tube. NOTE: Most imported slingshot tubing from overseas is extruded. Extruded rubber has striations which occur as "rings" that are perpendicular IIIIIIII to the entire length of the tubing. The rings wrap around the tubing like "cherios" stuck together on a string. This extruded production method decreases the "snappyness" of the band, and decreases it's power. See Striation Pictures for further details about the important differences between dipped and extruded bands.

Trumark's RR-2 powerbands are made from the best quality, pure latex-rubber. A 0.4% carbon black jacket has been added to the rubber for the ultimate protection against damaging Ulraviolet light rays. (Adding black carbon is a method proven to prevent premature aging of rubber which has been used in the tire industry for over 100 years!) The black carbon helps make them the most durable slingshot bands ever. All Trumark bands may also be conditioned even more against contaminating elements with 303 Aerospace Protectant. Conditioned bands have increased lifespan, and last many more shooting sessions with a minimum loss of shooting power.

With a small amount of drug-store rubbing alcohol the new bands can be easily installed on Trumark slingshots, or most other brand slingshots with round prongs, without the use of tools, strings, or glue. The RR-2 bands pull considerably harder than the RR-1 normal pull, and are recommended more for hunting than general target practice. The advantage of the heavier pull bands is that it will shoot the larger 3/8" ammo farther than normal-pull bands so there is more impact when the ammo strikes the target. Also, since the wall thickness is 1/64" thicker, the bands will last longer than normal pull - the disadvantage of the heavy pull is that it tends to wear out your arm a little faster!

Both left and right bands are cut from one length of tubing so they are "matched" (balanced) for accurate shooting. CAUTION: Powerbands that are folded and packaged curled will take on a "set", and will not shoot accurately when installed. Trumark pure,surgical-latex powerbands are all packaged straight in air-tight, sealed blisters that guards against deterioration before installation. More on powerband life. If the package is left sealed, the bands will stay fresh, and can be stored for long periods of time. Instructions on how to install the bands are included on package. 225 Yard + Range!

PARENTAL NOTE: These bands are not recomended for slingshot shooters younger than 12 years old.
