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 two 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
If you are looking for bands that can take abuse and thrive on heavy ammo, look no further than Linatex®.

    I mold 36 cal. & 45 cal. round balls and this band sends them down range with no trouble, I think it will work great for small game.

    I received these very promptly, and I was quite pleased with the quality and the fact that it comes in uv resistant bag as well. These are not low budget bands, these are the top of the line, as far as bands go. The people at simple shot are very polite and courteous as well.

    Linatex is a best that packs a punch

    Posted by Jeremy aka JTslinger on Sep 23rd 2015

    I recently ordered a set of 5/8" straight cut bands as I had heard many good things about Linatex. I left the length as is and attached the bands to a frame I had lying around without bands. I soon realized I didn't have any ammo that was heavy enough for the bands, so I ordered some 1/2" steel.

    When I was able to take my first few shots with the bands I was immediately aware of the somewhat heavy draw weight of Linatex. The pouch that comes on the bands is a great pouch, but is a little slick when pulling the heavier draw bands. The bands themselves are great for slinging heavy ammo down range either for plinking or hunting. I love the fact that I can leave the frame and bands out and not have to worry to much about the band quality deteriorating due to exposure to the sun or air.

    I have good access to nice sized sling shot rocks. These bands and the heavy duty pouch work great. Different feel from theraband and latex, but as advertised, good for firing rocks.

    3 years ago I carved a slingshot from a star fruit fork - looked on web and found simple shot - I've always been lucky - the bands are perfect

    Love the Linatex

    Got these for heavy ammo and they really fit the bill. When shooting 1/2 steel of .44-.50 lead these bands put the ammo downrange hard. the bands also appear to be extremely durable.

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.
