Hi,

Just wondering.

Is there any company or individual selling tubes in 10-30m rolls cheaper or within the price range of Dankung? 1745, 2050, 1842, 2040 in order of preferences.

Looking for about $8+ shipping for 1745 for 10m.

Just asking because if I do know of any, I'll be more than happy to have them noted for future reference.

Or anyone doing loop bandset 4 strand 1745, 4 strand 2050 and 8 strand 2040? Price?

Kevin.

Yes Jack,
Received from them yesterday 20m 1842 and 10m 2040.
You're right, the price is very good.
Great folks to do business with - I had a little trouble ordering through their website so I contacted customer service. They were great - found the "glitch", fixed it, and for my frustration, sent the 2040 for no extra charge.
If you need to, use a buddy's computer with a different ISP.

Good luck.

JACK -

Assuming you eventually receive the tubes from Alibargain, be careful opening the cardboard box with a sharp blade. The tubes are in plastic bags with no other protection around them, so don't cut the transparent box sealing tape deeply.

Thank you.... I'll be careful.

I was a bit worried not finding a company around to buy tubes from as to be honest, I'll avoid using Dankung, just in a last resort situation.

Oh they have the amber tubing that Dankung doesn't have. Going to order some 2040, 1842, 1745 and 2050 in a few weeks time.

I've too many package in the mail right now! 6 in all from the U.S!

Still looking to buy more slingshot.... I've to stop buying, I think to stop that frenzy, I need to get a heirloom slingshot and that would be it....

Well Jack,

Just a couple of days ago, I received, from TexShooter, his modified Saunders Hawk slingshot. It has his double-bands and a foam grip to attach to the handle. Super-powerful and a pleasure to shoot. And, it will accept bands or tubes. : )

I know you need to cut back on your ss purchases, I just wanted you to know that this particular ss is a real winner, and a favorite of many forum members. The rest is up to you.

I was thinking in the line of a wooden slingshot but now I'm exploring metal too since I've seen some beautiful metal cast slingshot. I'm looking for an outstanding piece of work that I can use, display and pass on.

I've a fix amount I've set myself and once spent it will be o.k, no more slingshot craving! Lol, that's why I need to choose well!

"No more slingshot craving..."
Hah! As if that's humanly possible!
Aquisition syndrome is non-rehabilative. Why do I have half a dozen tinwhistles/pennywhistles, a dozen harmonicas, two fiddles/violins, half a dozen archery bows, several firearms, 70 or so books about dogs, many books about the subject of magic/survival skills/professional cooking/books and CD's/DVD's on instrument playing, etc. etc. etc.

You can't win! There's no rehab for us!
Buy! Buy!

Understood- I've all the books and other study material, all the Basswood, and all the tools and accessories for woodcarving, for a couple of months now, and I've yet to find the time to get started with it. Some hobbies take priority. It's like having to be a triage nurse at the hospital. So stressful! Maybe I shouldn't have retired - life would be simpler*

*...and if you believe that, I've got some prime property in Mexico to sell to you...
