Description Videos Reviews Our new long lasting .030" thick latex is available in bulk sheets! SimpleShot®Black Latex New from SimpleShot® Shooting Sports...the ultimate slingshot ... 8 Reviews 5 Simpleshot black. The new GOLD standard. Posted by Andrew Niemann on Feb 11th 2018 I have usedmany different types of latex for slingshots, but the Simpleshot black has to be the best i have ever used. The life you get out of the bands made from this latex is insane. I have fired well over 600 shots through the current band set i am using and its still going strong. I live in New Orleans and the enviorment of the south has affected the rubber in zero ways that i can tell. I find that it lasts way longer than theraband gold or any other latex that i have tried. Simpleshot black will always be my first choice. 5 Band sets Posted by Jim on Aug 22nd 2017 Use this for all band sets: hammer slingbow to all of my slingshots. Works really well on average get over 100 shots per band set. 5 Nice! Posted by John on Jun 30th 2017 My first time to use the new black (usually use latex tourniquets or theraband gold). This may become my new favorite. I will buy again. Good product and good service as expected. Thanks. 5 A GOOD ONE Posted by URI on Jan 13th 2017 I LIKE THIS NEW ITEM 5 The best yet! Posted by Unknown on Jan 10th 2017 I've shot everything from inner tubes to theraband . The new black has a feel & performance like I've never seen! The value & service is second to none! Thank you simple shot! 5 I'll buy more Posted by Unknown on Jan 9th 2017 The black is attractive, sure. But it is also durable and slings ammo down range as well as anything. I think the best thing about it is the feel of the pull, which is very nice and smooth. Well done Simpleshot! 5 This is the ultimate slingshot band material Posted by Tomahawk on Dec 10th 2016 Just bought this black latex , shoots about ten fps faster than .30 amber latex and about 15 fps faster than theraband gold . Where it really shines is it is as smooth or even better than theraband gold in draw but this really out last amber latex and theraband gold by at least 20 percent more shots by my experience so far. Chrony results dont lie and so far it really does last longer before having to make up new bands. Bottom line try it, you wont want to go back to anything else . So far very impressed , best material ever used so far. What else to expect from nathan and simple shot team ,only the best products and crazy good sevice every time . Thanks simpleshot for another great product . 5 Simple shot black latest Posted by Unknown on Dec 4th 2016 I was so unbelievably surprised when I shot my first black latex band set. They lasted to 552 shots. Using half inch marbles with 5-5/8" active length and approximately 28" draw. Bandwidth of 1-1/8" straight cut. Speed and trajectory performance at the very minimum is equal to, if not greater than, your standard .030" hygienic latex bands. And those only last to 200 shots or so. This new black latex is EXCELLENT in my opinion. They also seems to shoot a little quieter than the other bands. I say 5 stars.
