What do you guys think about this stuff:
http://cgi.ebay.com/50-FT-KENT-ELASTOMER-NATURAL-LATEX-TUBING-3-16-ID-NEW_W0QQitemZ250556200463QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3a5650360f

Looks similar to Thera Tube Black. Here are the specs on it:

750% Elongation seems very good, I think that Thera Tube is rated at around 500%. Also, Kent says that all their latex tube is dipped.

Thoughts? Seems like a heck of a deal!

I use both. Tubes have their purposes. Mainly, they are much more durable than flat bands. They also "reload" quicker.

I am going to see how strong they are first. Based on that I might try a couple different ideas I have.

If it ends up working well, that'll be a screamin' deal.
I trust there'll be a full test and review when you get it?

I think that Hygenic is the only continous dipped tubing manufacture, so it more than likely that it was made by them. I assume that there ad saying that it was dipped is accurate. Tsx
