    Yes, this is about what people refer as 'chinese tubing'. <br><br>Probably China was the first who used this kind of rubber tubing on their slingshots. ?<br><br>Dankung.com is a online store in Beijing, China. They sell this kind of tubing in different sizes and ship it to most countries in the world.<br><br>But I understand that you cannot log on to their website.

    <div>That's right. Chinese players more use this tubular rubber, just specification has a lot of kinds, different manufacturer product pulling force and expansion ratio is different.<br>In China, using flat rubber band is very small.<br><br>As for the site and who knows, maybe because of his server in the USA?</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    I think that many people say Chinese tubing when they refer to the smaller tubing sizes where adding more tubes makes it easy to increase power in small amounts. This is more difficult with the larger theraband tubes. I was rather surprised when the first Chinese slingshot I bought came with 6 very thin tubes , yet develops enough power to propel a 11mm lead ball through a metal paint can.

    Yes, what we call Chinese tubing is usually about 4 or 5 mm in outside diameter and is made to be looped through the rings that are common on Chinese style slingshots. Western tubing used on slingshots is usually about 9mm or even greater in some cases, and is made to slip over the ends of the forks. I use American made (Kent Elastomer company) tubing on my Chinese slingshots that is 4.75mm on the outside, so I call it "Chinese" tubing, even though it is made here.

    <div>Chinese tubing, we usually on its inside and outside diameter to mark specifications. Such as internal diameter 18 mm diameter and mm, the specification is 1842. Common specifications have 1842, 2040, 1745, 2050, etc.<br><br>The general product shrinkage ratio in 1:6 or 1:7, namely 1 unit of the length of the elastic ultimate tensile length can to 6 or 7 unit length.<br><br>Draw ratio of the product, the better the results. But tubular mended elastic than flat, rebound when the reaction is more, can affect some range and precision.<br><br>Routine use of,Chinese tubing life usually in 300 a pill or so.<br><br>But and crossbows,none ammunition shooting will affect its service life.<br>
