thanks billy, I think ther 1,38 would be the ticket. I put it on referee flags we use, the dowel is .75 inches with knobs ( wound black tape) then the shrink wrap goes over it.

Flocked Rubber Shrink Tube is the name at Mudhole. Other places call it X-Flock.

 

CMS probably has the most reasonable prices. Like 3 feet for about $15 to 20

 

Its not cheap.

Make sure you get the one you have in mind, they have the X type and the plain type (Quick Grip).

 

 

Another option that works great is the Plasti-dip liquid rubber in various colors. I chuck my rod handle so it spins very slowly and use the spray cans of Plasti dip and it works great. Super durable and not difficult to get rid of if necessary. It also comes in the dip cans.

x 2 for CMS 18.00 for 3 feet. More than enough for a surf rod.
