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 they will shoot the larger 3/8" ammo farther than normal-pull bands. 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's pure, surgical-latex powerbands are 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.
