pb mafia elastic loops loosening

Some of the elastic loops on my older pb mafia gear are loosing their grip. It's like they've lost some of their elasticity and they're stretched out. They don't hold the ten rounders as well anymore. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I've always just invested in new ones. The elastic tends to wear out every 2-4 years.

The penny-pincher in me hates to hear this.

The impulse buyer in me loves to hear this.

The penny pincher in you can wrap a pass or two of electrical tape around your tubes. Should pick up the slack from the elastic stretching.

The impulse buyer could buy a new one, and make sure to remove your tubes from the elastic after a day of play. I keep my tubes out of the elastic, but inside the capless pouch. This aids in shape memory for the capless zone, as well as stretch retention of the elastic. My Joyride is 5 years old and still holding strong.

I have just removed the worn out elastic and put new on my joyride pack.

I'm even lazier than this. I take black thread and sew the existing elastic so that it is tighter. I do it by hand. Doesn't take much work.

My mafia pack hasn't worn out, but an old shotgun shell holder I used did. I took some silicone caulk and added a little bit inside the loops for added size/traction. Worked extremely well for real shotgun shells and for tubes when I would wear them on my wrist.

You may get more insight/feedback if you post this in the "Dead Zone" rather than the CCI forum.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who does this
