JS bands

Post by Grandpa's Spells » Sun Sep 25, 2016 4:18 pm

Last time I was buying bands it was a choice between JumpStretch and Iron Woody. Can anybody share the state of the industry? My brother wants to make an order.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Anywhere nowadays.

Rogue, EliteFTS, Amazon, Jumpstretch, etc. Onnit.

The small ones wear out, so just look for the cheapest/free shipping/etc

My jumpstretch are still decent after 13 years, except the minis.

Dick's carries the Rage brand, and I've had decent luck with them. I can't tell any difference between them and my old Jumpstretch bands.

FWIW my personal experience with bands has been Iron Woody and JS. Both are (were?) latex vs. some other rubber. My key element in a purchase would be latex regardless of manufacturer. Too much chance of a catastrophic rupture with some other rubber IMO.

Don't want to get the same bands this guy used.

Personally, I think that injury is at least as likely to be from a fall after an overdose of gin, but just in case I'm sticking with latex.
