I think Skropi is right. There are better products out there now. But that does not mean TBG is not GOOD band material. Maybe just not the BEST. I still use it. I'd say you made a good purchase and even if you shoot every day it will take you a while to get through that,

I still love the feel of TBG. I will be getting some Precise and such with the anti-cold properties. But in the warm weather I'll stretching the Gold.

GZK will likely have some of that pinknans orange stuff that Kawkan tested.

Congratulatiins, Mike. It is fun stuff. How are you gonna cut that up? For me that is part of the fun.

Thanks - could you tell me the product names of the "better products", please?

Thanks - for cutting, a rotary cutter is coming, and I already have the self-healing cutting mat and the heavy ruler.

"Precise" - what is that, please? And "GZK" and the "pinknans orange stuff"?

Mike

GZK is a person and a seller of elastics and other items.

Precise is a brand of elastics.
I will look for some links to share.

Also Wu Jim sells these as well as Simple Shot. I am not sure which postage would be fastest for you.

You may find this supplier useful for bands and pouches: "Mr Yang outdoor supplies", which shows up under Aliexpress.com:

https://www.aliexpress.com/store/2787203?spm=2114.10010108.100005.1.2c4d4de9r3xRyZ

The "precise" range of flat band rubber is available from both GZK and Dankung, who also both sell reputable slingshots i.e. steel, not zinc alloy:

GZK: https://trade.onloon.net/detail?itemId=46710b1dff8148a58d7488c854769a41

Dankung: http://www.dankung.com/Gcontent/genuine-precise-latex-band-best-and-most-people-used-flat-slingshot-band_2419

Have fun!
