I bought pen bladder substitute material from Texas Timers.  They had 3 sizes.

I have pen bladders that I purchased from pendemonium dot com.  Look for "Pen Sacs" under Repairs & Services

Seems they have allot of sizes that go by some kind of number system that only pen people know. What size did you get?

I have #10, #12 and #14 on hand (larger number = larger size).  The #14 is roughly 1/4" OD by 3" long.  I see they are currently out of stock on #14.  Perhaps the #15 would be appropriate since they can always be cut down if appropriate

Hope this is helpful.

Nobody uses actual pen bladders. Even back in the sixties we used pacifiers or surgical tubing. Really old time speed and free flight guys used actual pen bladders (usually with a balloon over the outside) until they discovered surgical tubing.
