    I know a lot of people get theirs from ebay. I've got mine from French Creek Medical which costs about $30 for six yards or TB gold. Do you guys come in above or below that?

    The places charge be about 5 bucks for 3 feet here, or 10 bucks for 5 feet for the higher strength variety... sometimes it's tough to convince the physio places to sell though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

    I've found that I can buy Barnet elastics locally on the mainland, about £5 a set when it comes to DanKung tubing I find it easier to just buy it directly from them- 10m at a time, it last me a good long while <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    I'm pretty sure any will do, there is even a video that Joerg has done comparing things like rubber bands and inner tube from a bicycle

    I get mine from a Canadian online retailer. They're a bit expensive, but, they offer free shipping in Canada, so I'm happy with it.<br><br><br><a href="http://welmart.ca/Category/Exercise-Balls-and-Bands" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://welmart.ca/Category/Exercise-Balls-and-Bands</a>

    <span class="postbody"><br>Yeah, I'm well aware of the availability of surgical tube (I practically live in hardware stores). I've actually found, unless you get some kind of bulk pricing, it can be more expensive than Theratube.<br>Last time I was at Rona, surgical tubing was $1.99 a foot. <br>Totally with you on the superiority of the TB brand rubber, it's all I use unless I want very light draw weight, or extremely heavy.</span>
