I'm going to order some of Nick Gilbert's pink elastic 6-8 when it's back in stock.
What size of Preston dacron connector would be best, small or medium?

small cones like these ones are perfect and can be used on various elastic sizes

I'm using the MAP TKS match topkits which come fitted with an internal bush.

I use the same size for all my elastics (that includes nicks 5-8 pink) - I use tapered tail rubbers like the ebay link above. And thats in the same tks match kit top (3.5mm bush)

Although I prefer the black ones which are slightly squatter. The guy uses good stiff dacron. he is "teamabar" on ebay - but just looked and he doesnt appear to be selling at the moment. Luckily I stocked up as they are very good.

I don't understand. Are you saying the preston ones are better than home made ones?

Because they aren't...
