I know you can buy rubber bands at just about any office supply store and my question is this: Are some rubber bands better to work with than other? Where do I buy the best rubber bands for magic?
thanks, Jeff

In a pinch, I bought the #16 rubber bands...WAY too small. Most that I have seen use the #19's. I am heading to the city tomorrow, and will picj some up then.

Thanks for the brand recommendation, Vinny!

"Brites" rubber bands are made by Alliance, but they come in a variety pack, and the #19's are the yellow ones. Only Alliance makes pure latex bands.

Yes #19 but they are not as good as the alliance #19 latex free bands which cost around 7 bucks for a pound.

I bought a one pound box of Alliance #19 bands from Amazon last month. Afraid I might run out - if I can manage to live to about 110!

Great bands, really, and at these prices you can't lose.

At Staples, all they had was the Staples brand. I will be in a city on Wednesday where this is an Office Depot or OfficeMax (can't remember which). I will look there for the Allliance brand.

Vinny,

Do you like the Alliance latex free rubber bands or the Alliance "crepe" pure latex rubber bands?

Another vote here for Alliance Rubber Bands. I have the crepe colored, orange and blue. They are strong, flexible, and look great.
The Best!
