    Default Rubbers for Zinger Winger ll G4

    I need to replace the rubbers on my wingers and would like to find something local. Any ideas of what kind of supply store to look at? I am close to Tyler Tx. but dont really know where to start looking.

    Do an internet search for speargun tubing.

    7/16" to 1/2" works well.
    The 1/2" has quite a bit more band tension than the stock tubing.

    Thera-Band Silver,Super Heavy works well. you can buy it in different size rolls.
    Get it on EBAY or from Thera-band.com ( exercise tubing )

    A friend and I re-conditioned several wingers with "Thera-Band Exercise Tubing - Latex Tubing - Silver - Super Heavy - 100 ft." bought on Amazon for $64. I guess it's the new thiner Silver, but it works fine - about the same as the original black stuff. It didn't come in a single 100 ft. piece, but three that added up to 100. I use one piece for exercise tubing and have enough left to re-do my winger if it sun rots.

    Humm, the stuff I bought came in a box with their trademark???

    Maybe this is what you mean:

    The stuff I bought last summer is 7/16 in OD. I don't understand the dimensions given in the post above.

    Mine measures 1.1 cm OD, 0.3 cm wall, 0.5 cm ID (with a ruler - not very accurate).

    Contrary to what is often repeated on the forums, Thera-band is NOT as good as natural Latex rubber.
    Nothing has yet been made by Man, that is better.

    Head-to-head, with same cross-sectional surface area, Speargun tubing will always spank synthetic rubber like it caught it stealing something.

    How is it as far as durability? As compared to the Therabands?
