Had not heard of this but sounds like a good idea, has anyone else tried silicone bands?Something I found to work with the JLCR is to swap the standard rubber band with a silicone band like the kind you can use for cooking. It doesn’t melt or bind on parachute material and gives a smoother release.
Another idea I had was to wrap a strip of paper between the chute and the band to prevent sticking, have not tried this yet.
I did recently not get a full release because the edge of the round ring that connects the band to the pin got stuck in the chute. Need to ensure that the edge is covered by the band or a small piece of tape.
