    Informative, I have been using silver theraband and liking it VERY much, cant seem to get the gold stuff around here, hoping the slingshot I get for 150 posts will come with some gold to try out! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> pretty please <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> lol<br><br>Love these videos , I really need to get my own chrony..

    You can also use long balloons they are very stretchy or rubber from the preserving glass but there are not so stretchy.

    I'm using mainly Tbg but I love the fit4life asda bands,the Red,(medium) is as fast as tbg and the Blue is really strong stuff,its only five pound for a box of three,yellow being the weakest,even though 3-4 layers of the yellow fires 10ml BBs like rockets.
    For someone just gettIng the buzz for making 'pults who's in need of elastic and unsure which one to buy,just buy a few metres of each,I'd say tbg,orange dubdubs or green,an some other strength materials,also for anyone Stateside who's keen on asds bands,walmart owns asda so fit4life could be the stuff for you.
    Anyway,happy hunting:)

    The truth!

    This might sound strange, but all of the former slingshot legends
    like Sean Nomyss, Calead Wagsball, Fay Slap and Scarface Icefork
    never gave a damn about "rubber"!!

    They used, and this for sure is a well hidden secret which to reveal
    to you guys is likely to bring me a lot of disrespect: Sisal.
    Simple, effective and as I mentioned being kept as a secret for decades!

    The truth is, that if you put those ropes into a mixture of olive oil,
    some pepper and some old scottish ceddar, keep that covered for at
    least six weeks and then cook the rope on an electric cooker for some hours,
    you will then be in possession of the most powerful slingropes one can think
    of!

    Nailed to a decent fork of at least exactly 1.375lb of weight, such things
    as missed targets, faceslaps and contests you fail to win are H I S T O R Y!
    - forget about that!

    And don´t tell everybody!- I will delete this post in a little while!
