Straight, tapered or Rockchucker

Linatex® is a high grade Latex formulation with an elongation factor of 810%-one of the highest in the elastomer (rubber industry). This rubber is also quite durable and resistant to UV and Ozone.  Quite possibly the most durable bandset available for today's slingshot enthusiast and reminiscent of the red rubber of yesteryear.

Offered in three variations:

  • 15-22mm taper with single layer pouch- best for 1/2" steel ammo-.50cal lead balls

  • 5/8" straight(no taper)- best for 7/16"- 1/2" steel ammo and .44 cal lead
  • Rock Chuckers- 15-22mm taper and single layer RockStar pouch- best for stones and irregular ammo 
If you are looking for bands that can take abuse and thrive on heavy ammo, look no further than Linatex®.

    Best Band On The Market

    I can't say enough good things about this bandset.

    I use it on my Howitzer and it's devastating.

    Best band set for heavy ammo

    These bands are great for heavier ammo & hold up very well. I have not worn any out yet

    Like all of Simple Shots bands these are great quality and consistently so. If you have a slinger you want to take camping sling rocks then leave in your camping bag for a year and have it sling next season this will do it. No kidding. Its a decent draw its no .030" and it does not have the quickest snap, but it has its bonuses that regular surgical latex can't hold a candle to.

    Heavy duty bird dropper

    If you want to chuck rocks, look no further. I tried shooting regular 3/8" shot, but the bandset is too much. It's really meant for walking through the woods picking up rocks. It has a large pouch and long, thick bands. High quality as usual.

    Top notch bands

    Posted by Arbiter on Dec 19th 2015

    I shoot the 5/8" bands on a 1st gen. Scout with .375 lead. Fast, potent and very accurate. Don't overlook Linatex-great band material!

    Wow, just wow!

    Great stuff, very good streching capabilities, smooth and very even contraction of rubber upon release, great for heavier objects such as marbles and stones. Very impressed with the durability, the bands could stand to be cut a tad longer . Very... very nice rubber.

    cool material

    Posted by jake on Dec 3rd 2015

    great durable band with tons of power. I'm not sure if I'm getting the same accuracy but it could be me. the only thing I don't like is the red/pink color of the bands but performance is great still.

    Linatex bands good to have on hand

    Posted by Plungerman on Nov 2nd 2015

    Love these Rockchuckers for their versatility. I keep a heavy hammer-grip natural fork I made next to my lazyboy banded with the Rockchuckers. I have a pesky racoon that comes around occasionally and it is nice to have this set up handy with no worries about sunlight affecting the exposed bands. The bands deliver plenty of pop should I get a bead on the unwelcomed rascal.

Please keep in mind that the slingshot bands are made from a natural material. This means that we have no way of predicting the life of the band. Even the best maintained bands can fail inexplicably or have a short life time. Despite our best efforts, using high quality industry standard materials and testing; approximately 1% of the bands fail early. We do not provide a warranty of any kind on bands.
