    Hi guys. <br><br>I like to give the tubing size 5080 a shot but something made me confused.<br><br>I bought 3' surgical tubing. OD 10mm, ID 6mm. <br><br>I was surprised because I noticed that the draw weight is about the same than the Thera Tube Red. Also noticed that there is not a big difference in speed. I wonder now if tubing with the same measurements perform different.<br><br> Let me put out these options; Thera tube red, Rolyan tube green, Dankung 5080, Surgical tube 5080. Same size but different manufacturer. Which one would you prefer?

    Hi,<br>here the list<br><img src="http://up.picr.de/13211851bv.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I can`t say anything about the material.<br>I also have no chrony for speed tests.<br>I habe some Dankung 3060 and MR ultralight here and the MR have a "softer" draw. Feels more elastic.<br>The surgical tubing you bought has much more ringarea than the Dankung 5080.

    Thanks Zwillie, <br><br>I was hoping that somebody tried those tubes I mentioned and can give me some feedback about them. <br><br>What made me thinking was that the bigger surgical tube 60100 actually is not heavier to draw that the Thera Tube Red which has the measurement 5080.<br><br>Maybe I just have to buy all of them and compare it myself.
