Bands for Freedive gun ?

I've got a couple of Rob Allen's (120,130) and I was wondering why is it that all the bands are always Rope material instead of wishbone or cable. Wouldn't the cable be more durable? I had a few bands break on me recently and was thinking of making a few with a cable insert instead of a rope, thanks for the input fellas...

the rob allen bands come with cable also. most people prefer the dynema, like you have, because it doesnt cut your hand up when it frays. if you are going to use cable, you can buy them from a rob allen dealer and insert them or else buy a rob allen band with cable.
