Rubber Bands for Switchback?

Anyone know what size rubber bands Doug is including in the Switchback kits?

Any good sources, I am sure I will lose all of mine in a few days!!

Looks like the ones in my kit are about #16. Seems small to me, but must be why Doug recommends using so many.

Personally, I use four #33s (two criss-cross, two straight) on my Mini Max and Dandy wings. I got mine in 0.25 lb. bags at Office Max. But that's just because I'm cheap, er, frugal.

Rubber Bands

I bought mine at Office Depot. I don't remember the size, but I got to pick what I wanted. Probably two years worth in the bag.

Remember to change them often, especially if they have been hot or in direct sunlight. The rubber is full of a kind of clay, so they don't last long under those conditions.

Take Care,

I supply #16s with the kit. As a rock climber, I like redundancy. #32s would also work well. I may switch to them at some point.
