    Hi,<br>I don`t feel big differences in material.<br>But I like the sizes of Dankung much more.<br>I often use doubled tubes and for me 3060 is nice.<br><br><img src="http://up.picr.de/12641562ma.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Drawweight is between green and blue theratube (single) but faster.<br>Dankung now sells conical tubes wich should be really fast but I never tried out.<br><br>Zwillie<br>PS The theratube sizes are the old ones!!

    I haven't used Thera tubes yet but I heard from many sources that the Dankung tubes are faster.

    I ordered some 1745 tubes to double up or to use single on a pfs. After chatting with some guys on Slingshot Forum I was sold on them. Faster, lighter, and 10m from Dankung is like $7.20 after shipping!<br>Oh yeah, and they last longer than bands.

    They sell it 9,90 euro for 5m and that' s without sending. Flipper got it for 7,20 dollars for 10m with shipping. 7,20 dollars is 5,55 euro if i am not wrong that' s 2x the price for 2x less quantity.

    Yesterday flipper told me that he had to pay three times more for steel ammo in the states. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33">

    I couldn`t get the theratube (yellow) cheaper than the Dankung (3060).

    Yup. straight from Dankung is the way to go: <a href="http://www.dankung.com/emart/10-meters-special-rubber-tubing-for-slingshotblack-1745-p-203.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.dankung.com/emart/10-meters-special-rubber-tubing-for-slingshotblack-1745-p-203.html</a><br>Although my price was incorrect, it is $7.20 for 10m plus $2.92 in shipping. Which is still a wayyy better deal.<br><br>And Zwillie is right, steel is so much more here! He showed me where he gets 400 steel balls for 15E!

    Thanks for the link Flipper. But i think i will have to buy them at Kugel- Winnie because at Dankung i think i can' t pay from account to account( E-Banking) .<br>I don' t like the other payment methods.

    I received recently Thera Tube Red and Thera Tube Yellow. The only Dankung tube I have is 1745.<br><br>The Thera band red seems to have the same draw weight than looped 1745 but it is slower. <br><br>I like the Thera tube yellow. I use it single. I cut it 'drawlength divided by 5'.<br><br>It shoots 10mm steel realy fast. <br><br>I don't know if it's as fast as 2040 or 1842 though.
