I wrote a while ago that the chipmunks are out. 

They’ve been replaced by Thailand (Dentsply SH4 Elastics).  Obviously, this company goes with a country-theme.  Curiously, they are made in the USA; the chipmunks are mexicanos, on the other hand.  I miss the animals.  Way more cute.

Anyway, another difference is that the Thailand elastics are thicker (4mm, 3/16″, 6 oz. versus 1/8″, 3.5 oz for the Chipmunks), and feel stronger.  They told me it’s the same, but it feels different, and look different!  What do you think?
