    Hey there slingshot fans.<br>I wish to know whether theraband gold can be painted by any specific type or brand of silver paint and whether there are any downgrades in efficiency to the rubber when it is painted. <br><br>Joel

    If you paint it the rubber needs to accelarate the weight of the paint, too. So you should get a slower shot if the bands are painted. If you want silver bands, simply use TheraBand Silver <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
     

  3. Not to mention the solvents in the pain will probably destroy the rubber.

    Bad idea.<br>FIAAO is right, just buy silver TB, i think it is the best solution.

    I think they make it with alcohol markers.

    What about ink? I don't mind any dark colour. Just that gold doesn't match the colour of my launcher. Will ink reduce performance?
