Here is a chart to help you quickly see the difference between the various tube sizes available from Dankung.

Wow this is great. Perfect timing too. Ive been looking for Dankung tubes the past couple of days, but not sure which I was wanting.

Turns out Im wanting 5080's. e-bay has them for 4 $ a foot after shipping. China isnt taking payment from this region. U.S. ? None of the vendors here on the forum seems to have them.

Any ideas where I can buy some?

China and Dankung are celebrating the Chinese New Year. After sending them a query, I recieved a email saying they would be back to processing orders on or about February 2.

I would add that a larger cross-section makes for a heavier draw but not necessarily a faster band. Fatter tubes are better for large ammo but more layers of thinner tube will be faster. For example I would almost guarentee that 4-strand (one loop per side) 1842 is faster than 2-strand (one tube per side) 3060 even though the total amount of rubber is comperable.
It's all about matching bands to ammo.
8-strand 2040 (two loops per side) is the bomb, though

l recently bought 10 meters of 18-42 from trulytexas.com. $16 included shipping and I received it in about 5 days. Awesome service and fantastic material. Combine that with new pouches from Jim at Performance Catapults and I'm having a complete blast!

and trulytexas also has 17-45 and 20-50 tubing and steel ammo

Hrawk,

This is what a slingshot community needs. These explanations that make clear in simplistic form so they (we) don't have to dig through info and expend time away from shooting to understand what best suits our needs and preferences.

Great job !!!!!

I had missed this post. Thanks for sharing Hrawk. I just got some 1842 and I love it! Oh, and there was a little mix up with my order at Truly Texas. But they fixed it up and gave me a free 8 strand 2040 band set. I was very pleased.

I am from China. If you want to buy something or have some doubt in anything, I can help you on them. But because the time difference, I might not be here when you are here, so you can also contact me at [email protected] to find me.
