Mr. and Ms. Titan were at my "Flip Off Hunger" tournament in December, and we installed these on the slings and flippers of my LOTR. They've held up just fine, and still look great. The main difference between these and super-bands is that they behave much more like standard rubber. I have nothing scientific to back this up, just my limited experience. They're easier to clean than normal rubber too, and seem to be more resistant to getting dirty. I'm going to order a set for NASCAR, because I'm tired of cleaning its rubber once a month.
