Looking for rubber dolly track

I bought a dolly and rubber track system form varizoom, and i'm pretty happy with it. The only problem is that their price for additional rubber track is ridiculous. It's 1 1/2" thick solid rubber hose, and it's also called "cord stock" Anyone know where else i can find this at a reasonable price?
thanks

Buy any cheap garden hose, fill it with bird chage sand and you are golden.

Lays out better anyway.

Frank,
have you used the regular garden hose filled with sand? Do they make a hose big enough (1 1/2 :)? Is it heavy?
Thanks
Bruce

Yeah, I use it pretty much. Look for the hose in your local garden/hardware store.
Yes, it is heavyer than the rubber tracks - thatīs what I like about it.
It lays out much better and stays in the shape you put it.

Make sure you secure the ends with a plug and a brace.
