    Default Latex tubing?

    Anyone out there in web-land know where to buy mandrel dripped latex tubing for wingers? I know about orion dog/dogs afield/winger zinger/etc offering it, but I'm interested in finding the manufacturing company for a launcher that I'm working on for sale.

    Misty, I don't know anything about latex tubing. Some of it works in cold weather and some of it does not stretch at all below about 20 degrees F. If you find some that works well in cold weather would you let me know about it? Sell me a roll?

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Howard I may have found a coupple of companies that makes the good stuff. They are sending me out catalogs and price lists in the next few weeks, so I'll contact you once I get my hands on it. It seems to be a tough thing to get your hands on because the bussinesses that have it will not tell you where they get it from so they can mark it up 150% and re-sell it to you. I plan on selling replacement bands along with my new winger I've developed in the new year at a "reasonable" price. Just to make you curious I will say this, my winger will be cheaper than the Gunners up, take up less space, be lighter and throw a bird every bit as far for about $250.00 U.S .

    Thanks for the advice, but surgical tubing is different from the stuff most of the winger suppliers are using. I'm sure that it works, but to keep up with the "jones" I need black latex tubing that is drawn over a mandrel when formed.

    If you keep surgical tubing out of the sun it will work, I've used it in the past, but mandrel is best!!

    misty you need a field tester for you new winger

    Thanks BIG DOG for the link, but I've actually found a company that sells the "black gold" of latex tubing that has a 850% elongaton and great memory properties and will be using it for my wingers . I will be selling it for replacement purposes aswell once I test it out for awhile.
