    I have seen on ebay there is yellow tubes for slingshots and it is 5mm at 5 m long but are they any good for slingshots? Do they break easily, can they stretch far, do they have enough power? It is quite cheap it costs less then $10

    6 feet if tbg is cheaper, go with tbg, that's just my preference though. I'm love flatbands, tried tubes never was a big fan

    'Looking at some tyres for my car on ebay. What does everyone think, any good?'

    Very difficult to answer that without knowing more.


    Same as the band question, more info is needed really. A link would be best

    depends, some people give you used tires and say it is new so beware.

    I am talking about these slingshot bands theses are quite cheap for 5 m but are they stretchy enough and strong enough for an average slingshot to shoot 5/16 inch ammo. Also I do not have a roller cutter so thera-band is hard to cut.

    This looks like the stuff that the cheaper Chinese slingshots come with. My limited experience with it is that it works fine but doesnt last very long, but if it is a lot cheaper than anything else then why not!

    Probable the same but dankung will have better quality. Maybe as I have not experience with these.

    Yeah, you just aren't sure what you're getting when you buy like this. You could try some out, but ultimately I'd suggest going through either Dankung directly or (since you're here in the USA) Simple Shot: http://www.simple-shot.com/collections/bulk-elastics/products/dankung-tubular-rubber. At $0.50 per foot it wouldn't cost you a whole lot more even with shipping added, plus you can choose the specific size you want. :cool:

    My opinion would be go to dx.com they have a whole load of different tubes at very reasonable ImageUploadedBySlingshot Forum1392247901.096042.jpg prices and free delivery, they are really reliable in my experience, granted delivery can take a while, I bought the looped tube Sets, I changed the pouch and used them as single tube sets, they are relatively fast and I have my sets for well over a year and still no sign of wear

    Just get Dankung tubing direct, very cheap and high quality. Hell, get a slingy while you're at it, they're inexpensive as well.
