I have not seen the PVC shrink tubing before and almost always it has been the polyolefin stuff that is used in the electronics industry. I can only suggest you try McMasters. Goodluck.

Once you put on the heat shrink tubing, it shrinks down in diameter but thickens to at least twice the thickness or more. It is the same thickness as the Quick Grip I have on my rods. I had to cut off some of the heat shrink on one rod because I messed up the installation and it was just as thick as the Quick Grip.

gone,

 

I'm sure there are various thicknesses of shrink tube. Quick grip is thick shrink. So, I'll clarify my statement. The tubing from allelectronics.com is half the thickness of Quick grip.
