in that case maybe not a2z corps has it but dig around-- I know I've seen it but I've gone through so many of the rubber supply stores and sites I don't remember what has what anymore but google 5/32 rubber and I'm sure something will come up.

If you have the funds, buy a rubber stripper. That way, you can make much finer gradients in your dimensions and you can actually save money by purchasing your rubber in bulk.

Ya but they're pricey so I mean if you have the money go for it, but personally I just buy them.

If you're going through alloot of rubber then the stripper is prob a good idea but if you just use some- like me- it isn't really economical to buy a stripper buying the rubber would be cheaper b/c stripper =180 + rubber to strip while rubber = maybe 10 bucks for a bag that lasts you a good portion of the season

Doesn't freedom flight do custom cuts of rubber? I definitely saw it on one of the common sites, maybe turner toys. If you specify dimensions, they strip it for you.
