From me!!! I'd love to send you some. I make several kinds, including tapered Theraband Gold bands. Check out my website.

Many members sell them. Tex's are very accurate and enjoyable, fish's are super powerful and I've yet to try Bunny Buster's, pallan65's and of course Flatband. You can also buy them retail, I think.

You can also make them yourself from exercise band or latex sheet. I prefer bought-in ones from members here because they are high quality products, but making your own gives you the chance to tune the bandset to your specific needs. There's lots of information on the forum about how to do it.

Thanks for the replys yall have some good looking bands. With the flat bands which would be better to go around the fork or over the top? Also if the band is wider than the top of the fork will it work?

I believe that over the top is the most accurate. If they are wider you can let them lap over or fold them say in half. Just make sure that the crease is to the inside (toward the center of the fork) and the folded edges are to the outside of the forks.

I prefer Tex's bands, but have shot with Gary (Flatband) Miller's bands too. You may just have to experiment with all of those that sell them, to see what ya like.
