Re: 2 or 3 bands for best performance

Hey Josh, just FYI,
I have some 9/16" bands I made nice and fresh from the standard ID stuff I just ordered from you. I also have a set of the same length bands made from some small ID 9/16 I just ordered from Petros. I and my sons are going to be trying both sets of bands, along with the default 5/8" bands that came on the new RA 110 I got from you.

Both sets of 9/16 bands are cut to 350% stretch when loaded properly. The factory 5/8" are at about 300% and 320%, as they are the same length, so don't stretch the same.

I'm only running a single wrap of 300# mono, so I'm only looking for good accuracy out to that range.

I'll post the results when I can get into some clear water.
