Ok so today I used the new rubber which was listed above.
I set the first few launches at 45 LBS and attained a somewhat lacking launch - then I took it another few paces past that stage - total paces ended up to 68 and at the end it felt like about 55- lbs - The launches were gaining altitude progressively each launch and ended up at 189 meters. The launch duration was a little slower as I predicted and wanted 3-4 seconds. There was enough time to anticipate the power or do a short "tow" if desired. However I was leaving a lot of stored energy in the system and I think longer line would invariably allow more alt without changing the launch scenario drastically.
There was almost no wind today and a couple times the wind thatt here was came in at 90 degrees/
I will put some more line on that bungee next test and see how the altitude measures out. I AM current using 75 paces of mono and will add another 25.
I have attached the GPS log to show the progress as I took the few extra steps and tension started to build
