    Got an RB80 rack. I currently have LP85 bolt-on bands for it. I'm looking for a set of 5.5" LP50 bands. Pic for reference of the style I'm looking for. Looking for one full set of bands (4 bands, 2 per side).

    Willing to trade my LP85 bands if you've got some LP50 bands. Also have a manifold I'd kick in to the deal.

    @PfcAJ you know anybody that might be interested? You travel in those circles.

    I don’t, but good luck coming up with smaller bands.

    The best move is to bolt single tank adapters to it on each side in place of those bands and use stage bottle clamps to hold the 50s on each side.

    Hadn't considered that possibility. Good call, I think I'll take a look at that option. Lighter weight too.

    It’s better for sure. It also brings the tanks closer to centerline.

    It works very well with 85s and 50s. Sometimes depending on the actual dimensions of the rack it doesn’t work with 120s though.

    Small bands?

    I’ve seen a few that are 40 sized that guys used on deco breathers at wakulla. That’s it though.
