    So I finally get my hands on some black bands and after one day of shooting the plastic piece that holds the pouch to the left band set is starting to slip out, I am sure I can fix this with some high strength glue but it is very disappointing.. I usually am the one to find the rotten apple out of the bunch but I think this warning should still be put out there, Hope I can find a cheap source of thera bands soon because I am tired of this store bought crap.

    @kill3rgreen... i get my thera band tubes and flatbands from an american ebay <br>seller named "usaslingshots" type in "slingshot rubber" on ebay and you should <br>find them. They have a good selection of pre-maid or DIY, please yourself, and i hope<br>the info helps you find what you want, - QUALITY.... p.s stay away from the cheap chinese<br>tubes,happy shooting <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">

    l got 3 premaid (with pouch) sets of heavy pull blue thera band tubes for $21.00 US, <br>and that included delivery to australia! So be cheaper still for you if you live in the states.<br>The pouches are good quality and the tubes tightly bound on with gold thera band strips<br>so they dont come off. He's also got flatbands etc and red thera tubes if you want a lighter <br>pull, check my previous post for more info, happy shooting <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Get a piece of sandpaper ..150 grit will do ..roughen up the nylon connector .. then wash it off with mild dish detergent ive been doing this for a while now and have had no problems with the band slipping off. Do NOT gouge it ,just take the smooth surface off of it Good Luck

    I had the same exact problem with at least the last 5 or so. I even emailed them about it. They didn't seem to care about. Most of time they started to slip after six shots. I even had one come of and slap me. I was not very happy.
