    I chronytested all these bands with 3/8 inch steel<br><br><br>1 : 17 x 45 Black tube chinese cut - 251.5 fps: Single strand loop band set c/w leather pouch. 17cm long for full draw effectiveness and efficiency. Bands reach their maximum potential at the limit of their stretch .<br><br>Almost all Dankung slingshots will accept this type of band<br><br>With Dankung rubber the first two numbers indicate the internal diameter of the rubber and the second two the external diameter. So 1745 is 1.7mm internal diameter and 4.5 external diameter.<br><br><br>2: 1745 Thera tube black - 220 fps : Pulls about 20 lbs. Average fps 215. Great for hunting.<br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTiY8Ln9s-B6hTUHsk5w4bYiprbrXQVTuGZLzB4i7xRI9mnjIih" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>3: Latex target bands - 285 fps : Fastest bands on the market but doesnt last long .<br><br>4: Daisy Slingshot bands - 255 fps : High quality band can be used to hunt bird and rabbit not fro sling bows.<br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ1uq-1c5B_rIoh9fpteyvcasllLf7QPsp1TseqGN8ZS-P5UTpr_w" border="0" alt=""><br><br>5: Theratube Red - 248 fps : Long band life, average fps, far streching.<br><br><br><br>6: Chained Rubber bands - 200 fps : Low fps low band life.<br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQxvyKLZmKxdG8JJOw6VTGKzVmwpCucuXvO5U0_teWOGSQTGJKlAg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>7: Gum rubber target bands - 242.4 fps: Traditional for slingshots high band life.<br><br><br><img src="https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS5YLtvB7qKPTKWuGtbN5-d9sBUWO9LxybDUCOhgMkb7G9OunxQ" border="0" alt=""><br><br>8: Theraband gold target bands - 266.8: Long band life very powerful and strechy

    i really love the theraband flatbands... <br>i made most of my bandsets from TB gold or black and i can say that they have the best performance for a really good price so far. <br>really easy to buy it online. where i live its hard to get rubber bands or tubes in local stores so i have to order it online.<br><br>the natural latex bands are really expensive for the bit more power in comparison to TB gold i think... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>
