I have some of Fish's Therabands on my Black Widow. I bind them with some thin stong cord, I used 45lb fly line backing that I had to hand. I put a loop of cord that sticks out an inch beyond where your wipping will end & then start wrapping from the other end so when you get to the end of the wrapping you put the end of your cord through the loop & pull the other end hard, which pulls the loop & tail end under the whipping... If that makes sense. I then cover librally with clear fly tying varnish all over & leave to set. Then I do it over a 2nd time making the whipping a bit neater, again pulling the knot under the wipping. More varnish & you are done. I cut 2 inches off the wrist support to make it more pocket friendly, which works well for me. Here are some pics:im interested in spare bands how much are they and how do i attach them to a barnett black widow ???
Yes, I suppose so.... Fair point. I only put them on yesterday & gave it a quick go today, but it seems to be on pretty bombproof, like you said. I am using slightly shorter bands this time so it is running a bit faster & with a flatter trajectory, so will need to go to the range to do some target practice in the net to get my eye in on it. I will put it over the chrono again to see if it ios over 20 foot/pound yet...could have just said you whip it on.
Yep, the nice friction burns across the top of the wrist.All this catapult stuff got me thinking about some of the catapults I used as a boy. Do any of you remember the self inflicted pain you can get from those old Milbro aluminium catapults?
