Hi mate. Are they dankung brand tubes? They might be a bad batch, sometimes the dankung batches can be a bit hit or miss. I had a bad batch of 1842 black from an ebay vendor last year, they had a white hue and made a creeky noise when elongated. They were wearing through after about a day of shooting, whereas normally I can shoot one bandset for weeks. The green tubes from gzk seem to be more consistent batch to batch. Perhaps the stock from the vendor was really old or stored in a bad environment. Other than that I can only guess that the edges on the torque are a bit squared or sharp causing premature wear. I've never handled a torque before, but I don't think I've heard of this problem from anyone before.

G'day nah they aren't dankung tubes they were just some latex 1745 tubing off eBay. Should I instead invest in some dankung?
Hi mate, it might be worth giving them a go. That's what I use usually, I'm trying the premium tubing at the moment and they seem good. It might be worth buying directly off dankung, they will take a while to get to you but they will be good quality and cheap

For the premium tubes you'd be looking to pay 14usd for 10m of 1745 delivered worldwide

Alright what if I just get the regular Dankung 1745 instead of premium, much difference?
The normal stuff is also well trusted and used by many, it's the genuine original 1745 tubing. It's 10.49USD for 10 meters. It's definitely worth trying it out

I'll try order some tomorrow but if I'm going to order some I want the best. Worth just getting the premium instead?
I've only just got my batch of the premium yesterday so I've not had much chance to try it. It does seem very good quality, it's very smooth and even thickness down the full 10m, it seems a little more snappy, maybe a bit faster than the black. There's a lot of good feedback about them on the website as well. I've been using the black tubes for a while though and have been generally very pleased with it as well. For the price I reckon give the premium a go, 10m will last ages
