heat shrink tube

Post by mastercaster » Tue Dec 08, 2009 8:34 pm

hi everyone, just wondering where i could get some shrink tube from for some beachcasters. ive just took the handles off and the eva grips because they were a bit too chunky and sanded down the blanks. and would it be ok to use a multiplier with these because they are rung for fixed spool any info would be very much appreciated thanks

Hi, cant help with the shrink tube, but you can use a multi on a F/S because the line comes off straight. Cheers..Mick

by using a multi on a fixed spool rod you run the risk of the line cutting in to the tip section of the blank when your reeling in under presure as the eyes are so far apart so be carfull

Hi,
Have a look at this stuff on ebay 220521526916. Fishhunter from the site got some and it looks good and has excellant grip. Planning on getting some for myself. Just a word of warning-though fishhunter may disagree- the red shrink tube is a bit on the pink side ;)

Thats not quite the reaction I got from fishunter but in my defence it was his mrs who pointed out the pinkish tinge on the shrink tube. It is actually red but I just coudn't resist :D

Recently got some from Veals(plain black and the black with crossweave pattern)both have done a good job,various colours available.They also do something similar to wrap for tennis raquets-not tried it yet myself but it sounds O.K. hope this helps-cheers,Mick
