    <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"> seems to be less interest in this material?<br>Nevertheless I ordered the ultralight and I will make some bands out of this rubber.

    I built and flew RC aircraft models a long time before I discovered slingshots ... it is weird to see my two hobbies come together in this way ...

    Maybe all the folks are Christmas shopping.<br><br>You got me curious about this rubber tubing. <br><br>I hope you'll find somebody with a crony who can test it.<br><br>Also without a chrony I'm interested what you think about them. <br><br>I saw they have also 4 x 6.4. May be worth also to check them out.<br><br>Keep us updated.

    Hi Zwillie,<br>I fixed my problem now i have to wait until 28/12. I' ll contact you then.<br>I know nothing about tubes but i see that you are interested in those ones. Hope we got something good here. Are they cheaper then TB and Dankung tubes?

    The price is about 2,50&euro; per metre, the Dankung 3060 about 3,50&euro; per metre and thera tube yellow about 3,00&euro;.<br><br>Again, it is interesting for crossbows, they got one which is nearly two times stronger than thera tube silver!!

    I' ve shot only one time with tubes but they were bad quality, after some shots they were broken. Cheap chineese slingshot, you know what i mean... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt="Rolling Eyes" longdesc="14"> .<br>Hope these will do the job, i can' t wait to test them.<br>I just saw, it is a german website. Cool for you because you probably wont have to wait too long to recive it.

    Hi Toksick,<br>I just had the Dankung tubes to test.<br>The 3060 are a good but strong size for me.<br><br>I like tubes more than bands.<br>It is not the shooting power or speed, just the clean look of a metall slingshot with black tubes <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br>Think I am more a builder than a shooter.<br>Merry Christmas.<br>Zwillie<br><br>PS You will get a PM when the tubes are here.
