Best rubber bands Answered

I make a lot of knex guns and was wondering what people thought were the best rubber bands to use on them are generally, and where to buy them. Also any website links would be much appreciated, thanks.

we use rubber bands for an unrelated subject (as a mode of power) and we soak them in motor oil to keep them elastic and stretchy when we're not using them.

#64's are the best. i use the blue ones that are latex free. they have larger than normal elasticity, so they stretch farther, and they go back to their original shape so it doesn't wear out very easily.

Red ones they are more elastic and last longer. I used to know the reason why but i forgot . it has something to do with the ingredients used to make them.

Beacon rubber bands seem to work the best.

The rubber bands come in different sizes which helps.

Here's a link.
