Default For those of you who don't like the new Rage plastic retainer rings

I have found that orthodontic rubber bands work great, and are $4.99/100 on Amazon. Get the 1/4" "light-duty" ones.

I used rubber cement one time after losing all the retainer rings.... worked like a charm.

You can buy orings at Home Depot also. Can't remember the size but search archerytalk. I bought a bunch a couple years ago for a couple bucks. I tried using my daughter's braces rubber bands however they broke too often for me to trust them.

Sounds like a fix. I tried the rage and was frustrated with the same problem. Seems like something of that price would have that issue engineered out of it. Went back to reapers.

Is this issue with the Trypan?

I'm using traditional rage 2-blades. Not trypans.
