I have one of Fish's cattys that he fits the Theraband Gold to and he doubles it up. Very good indeed but check out the site and you will find that Gold is the strongest.

You don't have to use that specific brand name. Any exercise band will work fine as long as it is real latex rubber. However, if I were living where you are I would contact Fish about your slingshot needs and he will fix you up. He has an ad on this forum...Hunter catapults. He has anything you would want. You might not want to buy too much rubber at a time because it does get old, even when you're not using it. Hope this helps at least a bit.

What you got is Thera Band Gold. That is good stuff. However, it seems far to wide for a beginner. I recommend to remove the pouch, cut each band in half lengthwise and the re-tie. Use the other half as a reserve.

Fish uses two stripes of 2 cm at the pouch and 3 cm at the fork, which is very powerful. Your band looks like 10 cm by 8 cm or so.

You can usually find Thera Band on ebay, just search for it.

Regards

Jörg
