One, 2 metre roll.
Pleased to introduce Catty Shack’s ‘Great White’ hunting band, available in 0.8 and 0.85.
In side by side testing with Sheshou 0.8 vs 0.8, the results are shown in the picture. To understand the results, you must realise that to have a fair test, both bands need to be optimised to around 95% of their maximum. The bands are at different lengths, because they have different stretch ratios, as all bands do. So one active length is never universal, new bands should always tested and optimised to your own draw length. Luckily most of that work is taken out for you here.
Optimum performance with ‘Great White’ (in todays temperature in October) is found by taking your draw length, and dividing by 5.
The results of the test in the picture are virtually identical, it’s so close you can’t call it either way, with just a 0.7fps difference over a 3 shot average. If the test was done again, it could easily swing in favour the other way, it all comes down to micro seconds of pouch release timing it’s that close.
The 0.85 is my new go to hunting band, as of August 2020, having taken some very good kills with it over the past 6 weeks or so. This band is very smooth, not a stiff draw, great band life, and I’m more than happy with it. The results of the 0.85 are as follows 244fps 25/20 taper, 16cm active band length (81cm draw length) 11mm steel ball.
