Mako predator pro 70cm needs more power!

I recently bought a a mako predator pro in 70cm. Its got two 16mm bands on it and a 110cm long 6.5mm shaft. I was a little disappointed in the range when I got to use it this past weekend. I realize this is only a 70cm gun but that shaft starts falling as soon as it leaves the muzzle. The bands seem really long as they have a great deal of stretch left in them when they are cocked back. I was thinking of rerigging the gun with some 14.5mm small ID bands and putting a 7mm shaft that's only 100mm. I want the shorter shaft because this is my murky water gun and I would appreciate having it a little shorter. Anyone have any experience with hot rodding these guns? Are there any after market mechs for these guns to get the shaft farther back?

Thanks for the help,
