I've never used the stuff....I've tons of standard heat shrink.

 

Any local sellers here or on the web?

And for those that have used it..can hot water be poured over it....stove top......hair dryer....heat gun?

 

And do you recommend a cork tape base?

Put mine directly over the blank unless I need to build up the blank diameter, e.g a 22 mm butt.....heat gun with no damage or slippage.

Any time I use shrink directly on the blank I like to put spray adhesive under it. I have had some shifting with just heat shrink using plate seats on the shrink.

Thanks! 

I can't believe the cost of that stuff.

The high end stuff from mcmaster carr is crazy too.

high shrink from mc master wa slike 80$ - 4 ft

I ordered light grey 3:1 on amazon.......and did the entire butt in it....I have to make sure i don't accidenly throw it away as it looks like a 4 foot piece of pvc electrical conduit.  There's 9' feet of stick so it looks not horrible lmao

Just curious, but what is this spray adhesive you use?  Thanks

3M makes a number of excellent spray adhesives - I've used them for tons of stuff...but never under shrink tubing.

I've had some shift over cord grips, too. Some kind of light adhesive is a good idea.

 

Shrink wrap over cord, by the way, is, IMHO, the best grip material there is, bar none, on surf rods. It's the way, the truth, and the light. :th:

worth mentioning.............if there are any lumps of spray glue under the heat shrink.......they'll show.....Not the worst thing in the world.....but when it's 4' light grey piece of shrink wrap.......it shows.

I use gel epoxy, the same stuff for reel seats and grips. I use a very thin coat, I make sure that I rotate the shrink grip of the gel to get good coverage and then use the heat gun to shrink. I have never had any lumps or any loose sections.
