Has anyone done any testing on the power/loading effort/ power loss over time etc etc for all the new bands out on the market.

It would be interesting to know who makes the most powerful bands and hoe they compare to each other.

I know that www.speargun.com has a test but it is ancient.

No info on new picasso 21mm or Omer Max Power 20mm.

It could be something for the deeperblue team to get stuck into.

Up to date i used omer dynamic energy 20mm black ones and omer power 18mm.

On my old 86cm gun i have diffuculties to load it many times with 20mm and when i load it to second notch it snaped my shaft and noticeably increased recoil.

But in my new gun i load power 18mm with ease even my gun is 100cm. My shaft travel faster, more accurate and less recoil. I liked power 18 better than dynamic energy 20.

May be someone else helps you about other brands...
