We offer premium quality dipped latex tubing from the Hygenic Corporation. Dipped tubing versus its extruded counterparts provides for a more uniform thickness throughout, which in turn provides for more consistency from band to band and longer life. Excellent for both looped tube bandsets and single strand bandsets.
The tubing is sold in 50' increments.

Extra Small diameter tubes are best suited for .177cal BB's in single strand or up to 5/16" diameter steel balls in looped configuration.
Small diameter tubes are best suited for looped tube bandsets or single strand bandsets for ammo up to approximately 50 grains(3/8" steel ammo)
The medium diameter tubes are excellent for hunting and target shooting. Shot in the looped configuration, they excel with heavy ammo. Built into pseudo tapers or single strands, they are excellent for 7/16"-1/2" steel ammo.
Large diameter tubes are best suited for single strand bandsets and heavy ammo- lead, heavy steel, and stones.
What is the difference between the black and amber?
The black material is more stable and resistant to UV degradation. Our tests have shown the black to be slightly slower with an easier 'pull', but the overall difference is negligible.
