I second the Misumi brand. I haven't seen any of the issues mentioned on this thread with those bands. Of course I am only a hobbyist so not putting them through any crazy paces. I mainly use them for the 5100 and 5110. They are significantly more expensive then the Amazon mix bag ones but may be worth it.
