That is the method I use as well. I haven't had too many broken bands lately, but I can tell you it typically is the same few girls whose keep breaking. Even though you tell them that they shouldn't stretch the bow elastic too much & they need a base pony holder etc...they don't listen. They pull and pull on it and it breaks.
Some quality is better than others. I have found the best quality to be from ribbon retreat. They are nice and thick and I haven't had a complaint about a broken pony since I switched to them a few months ago & I have sold about 500 bows using them without a complaint.
