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, lightweight and works great for target weight bands.
Sold in spools of approximately 50 meters.
About the same as tape
I use both, string for base layer & first wrap, then the tape on top, it looks cleaner that way.
The crystal string is amazing. You can the very tight knots without it breaking. It has lots of stretch to it.
Being new to tying my own bands, the crystal string makes the process so easy. If you can tie your shoes, you can definitely tie your own bands. After watching Nathan use both the “Crystal String” and the “ Amber Tape” it was quite easy to accomplish the task. Thanks Simple Shot,
Great product for attaching pouches. Stretchy, light, and holds knots very well. I also find it is easier to manipulate/tie than the ribbon-type binding products. Don't over stretch when tying. The diameter can get very small, and it will tend to cut bands. No need to crank down. For most band sets, I do four to six snug double wraps with a single overhand after each and finish off with several overhands on the last wrap. This string is perfect for pouches with a little care in application.
Great stuff. Easy to tie, holds tight and stays in place.
