My team has ever only used rubber bands for our robots and have rarely considered latex tubing as use for lift aid/ latches etc. we have always thought it as more consistent, (as you don’t have to cut and tie pieces together) easy to add and remove, cheaper, and more readily available.
I was wondering why other teams might chose latex tubing over rubber bands.
other than that they last longer. I have seen teams having problems with latex because say both sides of the lift don’t have the same tension of tubing on them.
Does latex have a more consistent tension as it gets tight or a longer extension compared to rubber bands?
I kind of wish I could find a stress test on both of these. :p:p
