Alternatives to EZ Body, what do you use?

 

I like EZ body but there was a different type that looks great I can't remember who makes it and I am almost out.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

The top is EZ body.

 

I am looking for the flat bottom piece.

 

It turns clear with head cement or epoxy.

OK! Back years ago there was a small company[maybe just a person and labeled it] called Small Fry based in 3 Florence St. Franklin Ma. that marketed a very similar material.I went into my bin in the "cave"  and found 2 packages of it.Side/lights Body scale.It's more of a flat tape but looks just like the pic.I have some other type on a roll that is flat but hollow.The flat/hollow is called FLEXO mylar and is on a roll[I have 1/4" crystal pearl&a roll of silver].Try searching for that.Hope it helps.

In the video mentioned above I used PET Expandable Sleeving. If you search you will find it sold by the foot in various colors. I believe the place that sold it was called Electriduct . it might be what you are looking for. Your Photo looks very much like it.

What you are specifically looking for was Woven Body Tubing in Natural Pearl, from Spirit River, Inc., which went out of business a couple of years ago. I believe they were bought out by Umpqua Feather Merchants, but don't quote me.  For their part, in the same time period, Umpqua had a Flashabou Minnow Body, as did Hedron, Inc., and Small Fry, Inc in Florence MA had Side/Llights Body Scale.  Good luck in your search.
