Three inches may not seem like a huge difference, but when a color guard member is twirling, throwing, and catching an object, those few short inches go a long way.

Band Shoppe has rolled out two new sizes of its Endura Drill Rifles. In addition to the 36-inch size (with a 4-1/4-inch butt), the company now offers a 37-1/2-inch size (with a 4-3/4-inch butt) and a 39-inch size (with a 5-inch butt).

“For a high schooler, who’s a novice or beginner in rifle, a 36-inch is a good size; when you start moving into 37-1/2-inch and 39-inch sizes, those are for your more intermediate and advanced people who spin,” says Christopher Payne, marketing manager with Band Shoppe.

For example, 39-inch rifles are used by drum corps and independent guard.

All three models are made with high-impact ABS plastic material.
