For the DIY band maker, Crystal String is another option for securing the bands to the pouch. Made from super stretchy spandex thread, Crystal String is easy to tie with, light weight, and works great for target weight bands. Sold in spools of approximately 50 meters.
I notice how they say for light band tying, I’ve tied 1 mm gzk bands which are quite heavy and all you need to do is use more wraps. I like this stuff and it seems to minimize the number of failures I’ve experience at the pouch vs using latex to tie and lets be honest for the price why wouldn’t you try it?? A coffee is more expensive.
This string make tying my band a little bit nicer.
