    Theraband on AMAZON.COM I suggest the green. It's the right strength in my experience.

    Cooldays, these guys were my source for 550 paracord before it became widely available in Australia - http://www.supplycaptain.com/index.c...category_ID=19 - decent prices and fast shipping to Australia, so shipping within the US should be even faster.

    I have only ever bought treehuggers direct from Tom Hennessy. Might be able to get em cheaper elsewhere, but if they fail for any reason including wear and tear, he'll generally replace em free. http://hennessyhammock.com/catalogue.html (2nd from the bottom)

    Tubing? dunno, sorry. Most folks here use slingshot rubber for this purpose.

    Cooldays, I've always found deals on paracord at Army Surplus stores. Huggers (straps) can be found at strapworks.com. Thera-band tubing is often found at medical rehab supply stores but will cost you ~$25-30 including for 25 feet including shipping if you order online. Pick the one you want from here and do a search for the product # and you'll see lots of offerings.

    Cooldays...

    You can find Thera band on Ebay for around $20 for 25'

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Thera-Band-Exerc...item5636e628c2

    However... How much are you after? Ive got plenty and I can part with some.

    I also have Dynaglide in orange and green, and Zing It in red and yellow. Tell me how much you need. Unless you are specifically looking for paracord.

    I also have 1 set of 6' grey 1" webbing with 2" loops sewn in either end. Or a set of 12' in orange with a 2" loop sewn in one end. Shoot me a PM if you are interested in anything.

    I've had good customer experience with Best Glide. Best Glide's 550 cord can be found here. They also offer a 10% discount for BSA members.
