Speargun Power - Adding Power adding more bands

Picture shows Cressi Spearfishing Speargun double banded for extra power Two things effect the potential power of A Rubber Band powered gun, these are the stretch and diameter of the band. All other things being equal, a 14mm (9/16-inch) band provides less potential power than a 15.6mm (5/8-inch band) band and both produce less than a 18.75mm (3/4-inch) band. If we add more bands we increase the potential power in a linear way (so two 15.6mm bands yielding 45Kg of potential power each added together would give us 90Kg of power). Some bands come with wishbones already installed, others don't. If you think you might need the extra power go for a model that allows adding a second band such as the CRESSI COMANCHE, CRESSI GERONIMO, CRESSI GERONIMO ELITE, CRESSI MOHICANO, CRESSI SIOUX and CRESSI YUMA Spearguns . A thicker band is normally harder to load, you load 2 bands one at a time.
