powerbands for pull ups

Was wondering where the best place to purchase powerbands for assisted pullups was, or if there is a better alternative what everyone prefers. If I missed the existing thread on this topic could someone re-direct me? Thanks!

Just a little help.... you mis-spelled the link. http://www.roguefitness.com

For what it's worth, we use cheap-o bicycle inner-tubes.

Re: powerbands for pull ups

Also, the Iron Woody bands @ ironwoodyfitness.com (wfs) are pretty good. They sell single bands, single band sets explicitly as pullup assist packages, or bands in pairs (single pairs, sets of pairs) for band work on squats, etc. In my limited experience with them, they are very prompt in shipping. Not that this is the point of the thread, but I also really like their fractional plate sets.

Re: powerbands for pull ups

I just purchased the assisted pull up package + 1 pair of mini bands from ironwoody last week when they had a 25% sale. I couldn't be happier.

Re: powerbands for pull ups

Pallet bands from McMaster Carr work great and they are cheap. I have 2 going on one year of service with no problems.

Re: powerbands for pull ups

I dunno if this will help or not, but I just use bike tyre inner tubes for my flatmate who is struggling to get pull-ups down. They are dirt cheap and you can get them in different thicknesses (resistance levels): road tubes offer the least resistance as they are the thinnest (but prone to snapping), then 29er mtn tubes; 26" tubes, then finally downhill tubes are the thickest and offer the most resistance.
