    Has anyone tried bands made with Linatex? Supposedly it's extremely wear resistant and has an elongation factor of 810%, which is quite a bit higher than theraband. I'm just curious to know how it performs. I would post a link, but I'm too new and the forum won't let me. Just Google it, I guess.

    Linatex works pretty good, but it is fairly thick. No real competition for our beloved Theraband.

    I got a bit of it from a fellow slingshot maker called "Baumstamm". He is a member here, but hasn't been active in a long while. <br><br>It holds OK, but if you taper it much, it will tear similar to TBG.
