We offer premium quality dipped latex tubing from the Hygenic Corporation. Dipped tubing versus its extruded counterparts provides for a more uniform thickness throughout, which in turn provides for more consistency from band to band and longer life. Excellent for both looped tube bandsets and single strand bandsets.
The tubing is sold in 10' increments.
Extra Small diameter: .062" ID/.125" OD x .031" wall thickness- available in black
Small diameter: .125" ID/.187"OD x .031" wall thickness- available in black and amber
Medium diameter: .125"ID/.218"OD x .047" wall thickness- available in amber only
Large Diameter: .125"ID/ .250"OD x .062 wall thickness- available in black and amber
Extra Small diameter tubes are best suited for .177cal BB's in single strand or up to 5/16" diameter steel balls in looped configuration.
Small diameter tubes are best suited for looped tube bandsets or single strand bandsets for ammo up to approximately 50 grains(3/8" steel ammo)
The medium diameter tubes are excellent for hunting and target shooting. Shot in the looped configuration, they excel with heavy ammo. Built into pseudo tapers or single strands, they are excellent for 7/16"-1/2" steel ammo.
Large diameter tubes are best suited for single strand bandsets and heavy ammo- lead, heavy steel, and stones.
What is the difference between the black and amber?
The black material is more stable and resistant to UV degradation. Our tests have shown the black to be slightly slower with an easier 'pull', but the overall difference is negligible.
I like shooting BB's in the basement and this fits the purpose I wanted it for!
I am new the to the slingshot world. The tube stock from Simple-shot was fresh, packaged well and arrived before expected...great job!
Tubing is just very consistent. Great quality. Everything I wanted when I ordered.
I buy this extra small tubing to tie bandsets to the frame. It is unbelievably tough and the elongation allows me to tie bombproof wraps finished with a square knot. Recently I've been using it to tie bands to pouches. Nice rubber to rubber contact, no cutting, no slipping. And in a pinch, you can quadruple them for a muscular bandset for hunting.
I have tried all the dipped latex tubing sizes that simple shot has to offer (the sampler pack is a great bargain). I've come to the conclusion that I like it much better then the Chinese tubing. With awesome variety in sizes you can easily match up with what ever size ammo you prefer. Of course Simpleshot's service was fast and efficient, when sending me my fresh well packaged tubing.
Awesome tubes for heavy ammo great on hunters, and Starships makes my Dreadnought happy
I am currently very happy with this tubing for 3/8" steel and 1/2" steel it has performed great in a pseudo taper configuration I do not chase FPS figures but I can say this stuff is fast !! Also the customer service provided was just wonderful thanks again to all the fine people here at Simple Shot! !!
Surprisingly fast extra small tubes. Doing great for BBs as singles and pretty good with 3/8" steel as looped tube sets. I'll buy more in the future.
Delivery was prompt, and the extra small tubing is a blast to set up for many different configurations and versatile bandsets. They will last forever! I have a single pseudo taper for bb's and looped for 1/4" and 5/16", although I have no doubt it could probably chuck some 3/8" steel if it were so inclined. Paired with an E shot bb pouch, you can purchase off this site as well, it is an absolute dream combo. Happy shooting!!
Shipping was very fast. Ordered Friday, arrived Monday.
I bought this product after trying out a sample given to me by AZ Stinger so I know what to expect. This small latex tube has a very smooth draw and lasts way longer than flat latex or theraband. Good as singles and pseudo for 1/4" & 5/16". I'll be trying out looped for 3/8".
I am very impressed with how long the tubs last. They are very durable.
