Buying bands?

Post by pdellorto » Mon Jun 09, 2008 11:30 pm

Where is a good place to get bands online? I'm going to need them for some exercises I want to do, and the only band I can find here isn't cheap and I have no idea of the strength rating.

I was checking out this pack at EliteFTS:

Amusingly EliteFTS quoted me $132 shipping to Japan, but $7 to my US address. I bet it wouldn't cost $125 for my family to ship the box to me here...

The JumpStretch bands are supposed to be the best, which is what Elitefts sell.

Here's the jump stretch sites distributor list encase that helps,

The bands I have are Ironwoody bands. Some people say they are exactly the same and some people say the JS ones are better. I would of preferred JS bands but you can't get them in the UK. The Ironwoody ones were hard enough to get hold of.

I got them here, not that I think it will be any use, but thought I would post it anyway,

I have the IronWoody bands and they're working out great for me. Never used the JS before so I'm not sure how the IW would stack up.
