But again not Everyone likes a lot of pretension my gun has roughly 4 to 10 lb of pretension depending on what style of bands I use I just got back from the lake this weekend and my chest is currently black and blue more pretension more black and blue
Fully understood Fox55! I didn't take into consideration the diameter of the rollers or the thickness of the stock. My bad.

And yes, pretension is not a requirement.
