    Passing along a little tidbit someone on FB posted. He is using the long, skinny balloons used to make balloon animals to attach bands/tubes to frames. They are about 8" long. He cuts them in half and uses the 4" pieces. Says you can stretch them really tight. Probably excellent to attach tubes to PFS frames. I haven't tried this yet, but a quick look on Amazon and it looks like a pretty inexpensive option.

      For a while folks were using them using them as bands. Works pretty good.

      This is a good occasion to remember our good friend oldmiser I learned from him in 2014 and since then I use balloon strips to tie bands to frame, I also recommend them as slower / light bands to learn how to shoot pfs.
