Cata rubber bands?

okay so I really didn’t want to have to make a new topic for this but I need a little bit of assistance, our rubber bands lose elasticity very quickly and idek if they’d last a whole match to be honest, what are some vex legal non vex brand rubber bands that hold elasticity better and/or stronger?

Check for their high-quality bands


You can also use latex tubing, should be available from robosource

Yes, latex tubing is what Chine prefers to use for their catapults, as twisting it can increase the amount of energy is can hold (elastic potential energy). This means you can use less tubing with the same force applied to the catapult.
