Hey again guys just wondering what the best tubes to buy off eBay are. They will be used to take small game such as rabbits and various pest birds with 8 and 9.5mm steel. I will be honest I am sick of flats and there life span its really horrible. So I want some fast and long lasting tubes. Thanks for the help :)

You only shoot TBG right?
Yeah but its quite expensive to get other stuff shipped around $130 and slingshot shooting is only something I do for fun and have better things to spend $130 on. Do you happen to have any tube recommendations? It would be very appreciated.
PseudoTaper 1745 or Looped 1842 works well for 9.5mm as a Hunting set up and 2040 for 8mm looped or Psuedotaper

You should be able to take bunnies and pests with full loops of 2040s cut to 14cm, or 1842s cut to 17cm, IMHO. There will be a small penalty in additional draw weight.

Good luck!
What about 1745 and 9.5 steel?
Short, full looped 1745s are well suited to slingbows, and maybe .44cal lead. It's overkill for 9.5 steel. I have shot 1745s as singles and found them good for marbles and 1/2-inch steel. But that was set up for a longer draw.
