Ben, go to just about any Hospital Supply Store and buy regular surgical tubing! They even have it in different sizes depending on how you like it to feel! It's pretty cheap this way too!!!

Surgical tubing is perfect.

Another option is to go to a store that sells the "wrist rocket" slingshot. (Wal Mart sells them.) The elastic is the same sort of surgical tubing. And they sell replacement kits for the slingshots.

Wal Mart (and probably major sporting goods chains) might be easier to find than surgical supply stores. Then again, Walgreens/Osco/Longs chains may carry surgical tubing.
