    Hi everybody,

    I bought a Beuchat Mondial Elite Carbone (gun : 1000(40")/ shaft 1300mm(51"), 6.5 mm diameter) some 10 years ago, and used it one's or twice without success .
    I have more free time now, so decided to give it another try.
    It is equipped with 2 x 16 mm bands, 250 mm(10") long. When I load the gun the ends of the bands are looking heavenly worn.
    I have also 2 18 mm bands, 280(11") long in the same condition.
    Can they break when I load them ?
    I did some practice in the pool and had to aim about 6" higher to hit the target at 4 m(13'). Does this mean that my rubbers are worn ?
    I ordered a NTR Bead kit, size 5/8 - 3/4, 10 ft of 5/8 and 3/4 band, a spearit bungee and europe style threaded band adapters.

    Maybe tomorrow I will give it a try at our local pier.

    Thanks for having me !
