    Which one last longer: therabands or theratube ?
    I see somewhere that when the flatbanbs were tapered, their lifes were shorter. Is this true or not?
    Hope you can help me.

    True! Straight cut bands last longer than tapered ones.
    Tubes last longer than bands.
    Bands are faster than tubes.

    A clean cutting edge and attachment on flatbands also increase the bandlife.

    I cut my bands with scisors but before cutting, I put some masking tape on the cutting line so I can cut them like paper(in one of my bands there is a small hole and it seems to do nothing, the band still not break)
