I use them a lot less than my other sets at home, mostly just for Back Presses, Shimmies, and Whippets.
I have 2 sets:
a yellow, rated at 10 kilos/22 pounds the strand, and
a red, rated at 15 kilos/31 pounds the strand.
I thought I might want to mix the strands to diminish the 10 kilo jump of the yellow strands to 5 kilos.
They had always felt rather close in strength to me, but I had never measured them before.
I made a mark on a door jam at my wingspan, 163 cm/64 inches.
Holding one handle down with my foot I pulled the expander with a luggage scale.
The results with 2 strands were:
Yellow set 1: 19 kilos/42 pounds
Yellow set 2: 20 kilos/44 pounds
Red set 1: 18 kilos/ 40 pounds
Red set 2: 19 kilos/41 pounds
It seems that both sets are approximately the same pull weight.
