Last spring, someone suggested that I try a special "heavy duty" replacement winger bands to boost the throws of my SOG wingers. I of course have totally forgotten where to get these higher power bands. The origional bands are just about gone and are really need to be replaced. Does anybody know where I can get these bands???

As I recall, the bands are rubber tubing. Surgical supply house may have replacements. Also ask Richard Davis at Gunners up. Maybe an auto parts store that deals in high performance hoses.
I have the SOG also, and am still on the original bands. About 6 or 8 mos old.

Someone PMed me months ago and suggested that I try a specific "heavy duty" band. I seem to remember it was sold by a dog supply house but I don't think it was Lion Country or Dogs Afield. If I can't find the heavier bands, I'll just order some replacements from GU.

I ordered some bands from GU recently and they were a good bit thicker and stronger than the ones I had originally. They throw with alot more power.

I sell some really good Latex tubing! 7/16 OD 3/16 wall black $1.25 /ft . Do not buy surgical tubing, it's not the same, especially amber!

I just talked with Jerry at Gunners up and yes, they do have heavy duty bands. There were in use at the Grand, with positive comments received.
Noticeable distance improvements!
