Linatex® rubber compound was developed to line mining chutes and equipment, so it was made to be very tough and abrasion resistant. It just so happens that it also displays important characteristics of quality slingshot elastic. With one of highest elongation factors(800%) of any elastic used in slingshot sport, Linatex® provides for the slingshot enthusiast a rubber that is long lasting and excels at shooting heavier ammo at decent velocity. Due to its originally intended purpose, this is a perfect rubber for giveaway slingshots or slingshots that will be exposed to conditions that would otherwise destroy latex and its variants.
We source our Linatex® directly from the manufacturer to ensure that the required tolerances are consistent. The Linatex® you can purchase from other online vendors displays uneven sectional thickness and produces much waste for the DIY slingshot enthusiast. Our sheets are consistent from edge to edge.
Sold in 12"x12"x1/16" sheets
Much higher draw weight than theraband gold and a different feel when drawn and shot. It really does seem to like heavy ammo. If you want something that will hold up in bad weather and sling heavy ammo with authority, then linatex is the way to go.
I was curious how it behaves and ordered few sheets. No disappointment. Strong, easy to cut, durable. Not really for target shooting but for survival, bugout, or shooting heavy ammo it's a fine choice. The color is a bit darker/deeper than shown on image. Can't really define the tone of the red but it looks very very nice on a slingshot. Especially classy frames. Definitely worth a try if you like old-school stuff or fan of power with flatbands.
