Default Replacement rubber for a high start

I have an old hi-start that is in need of a rubber replacement. I would like to buy just the 50' I need and not get all the other stuff. Who has the best pricing for this?

[link]http://www.aerofoam.com[/link] loke for the hose monster link mandrel dipped latex tubing is the BEST thing to use for highstarts[>:]. This stuff will last for years and years. The amber extruded stuff only lasts for a year or two. The extruded stuff is not as abrasion resistant either. you will get more bang for your buck!

What size rubber and what size plane are you looking to launch.

You can buy latex tubing on e-bay. That is where I got the 25' lenght for my up-start. $15. Have seen many offers for 50 and 100 foot lengths, but you have to ask as sometimes it is not a single solid piece.

I have also seen brand new hi-starts on e-bay.

I bought my large hi-start, a NE sailplanes standard on e-bay for half the price of new and it is in great shape.

What kind of rubber do you need?
