After finally running out of donkey elastic I've tried out a few of the modern bands and have finished up with a resistance band from the local gym bin.
Fitted p***y style to an old rose wood stick and coupled with 16mm leads its performing well as a rat stopper.

The bands are for exercise I think , it certainly sends the lead out.
I like the Thera band gold but found snapping a problem .

The donkey elastic is still a firm favourite though.

Spent a couple of hours inside a skip as a hide .first with the blackthorn stick, gold band + marbles . Not the ideal choice for rats but spot on for pigeons.

Awesome and well done.  Looks like the rats have found the land of milk and honey too.  :icon_eek:
