What's the best type of rubber bands for knex guns? Answered

If there is no "best type", then what's better: putting on a lot of thin rubber bands or one thick one?


most people like to use #64 rubber bands as they are a short(ish) thick band this means they are durable and powerful. Personally I prefer #62 bands as they are the same thickness and slightly shorter, making them more powerful and durable.

64's of course. Everyone uses them. If you have a very long gun, use 2 tied together.

PS: One thick is better then multiple small's, because you can pull back the ram farther and they snap less often.

Most of the time, I just use an uber band from a slingshot toy I got when I was like 7.

A thick band is better than a thin band.  #64's are very necessary.
