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.

 

 

what are you looking at? ~$10 on the bay for a 59" section.

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
