Thin vinyl butt caps

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I have a few rods that use a very thin vinyl butt cap (they look like the thread protectors you find on pipes) and would like to use something similar on a new rod I'm making. I've looked at a bunch of catalogs and can only find "heavy" vinyl butts cap which are look bulky on the rod and are way to "beefy" for my liking.

 

Does anybody know here to find these light weight caps?

A good electrical supply house should have them.

If you'd like a less bulky butt cap, I'd be happy to turn a few down for you on the lathe. I use the Fuji mushroom butt caps, but usually shrink that bulb on the bottom big time. This way they fit into the Surfcaster style roof racks nice and easy. icon14.gif

find a local tackle shop that deals with Merrick Tackle Co. They sell them in ID's of 3/4, 7/8, 1, 1 1/8in. Heat in hot water lube with windex and push on.
