Ok got my dankungs a few days ago. The black bands are such poor quality that they develop holes. Luckiliy I ordered extra but this is ridicilous spent 30 mins on the sling plinking and now the 3rd band has a hole.

Is this normal ? or should I look into other bands.

Peresh.
In my experience, no it isn't normal-I'm on my second set combined w/two dankungs. Just under 20# of ball has flipped through them in a month. Are you stretching them to the limit or over-drawing them? Many have complained that they are too short which would exacerbate band life.

Nope no over stretch here. I sent an email to Tim at dankung and he said that perhaps quality could be bad. So I'm trying to work with them. He wants to send me bands with next order but here I'm left with bad bands!!!! Next order ???? That's nuts!!!
Kind of tricky to offer a replacement with another order
if there is a possibility they are of bad quality he should send a replacement set. Bands are a wear item so check the slingshot well for any nicks in the ears & forks with a magnifying glass or they new ones won't last either . I have an order due to arrive in a few days - custom sized catty and tube/pouches - if you can hold out a few more days(week?!
) I could spare a few meters of tube, that is if you want 1745 and can attach your pouch to it....or.... Some have ordered tube from places like Reef Scuba as they do have tube that is very close in dimension and are stateside.
