    Island Tackle in Carson has the rainshadow cold shrink in stock in a few lengths. Basically the same as the 3M stuff, but much more affordable.

    I had a couple of end pieces of this coldshrink that I put over 1/2' PVC to make up some knot pullers. The next morning one of them had split length wise and completely fell off the PVC. The split was straight and clean, very strange.

    EADFDBE4-A7A2-40EF-8D9D-41D0989935AD.jpeg I have purchased 3M 8427 and 8428 on EBay for pennies on the dollar, like 2 bucks each. I assume they are remenents from a contract job. But some are only 12”. The 8428 is what everybody uses but if you temporarily put the pull strap out of the tube you have a good chance to get the 8427 tube over a smaller reel seat. The last number after the dash is in inches...

    Tell us more about the thinner version, please. Is the numbering system such that 8428 has a larger ID than 8427?

    I was wondering how hard the 3M cold shrink is to cut and is it better to cut after it's been installed or is it possible to cut a 2.5" piece before the white spine piece has been removed.

    Very easy to cut with a razor knife after the install. Thay way the length will be perfect.

    I cut mine after it is installed over the fore grip. Just spin the rod on the rod lathe and touch the tube with a razor. With a steady hand you get a nice straight cut. Just be aware that the rubber pulls back from cut line about 1/8” or so.

    I was going to say, I have had Ken Bush put hydraulic hose on the fore grips of my cow rods, and I totally couldn't be happier, but I have cold shrink on most of my rail rods...or did before they were stolen. Ken will use cold shrink on the new ones he's building me too, but I don't know which product he uses.

    I really want to try that cold shrink-over-PVC for line pullers, though. Can someone recommend the right cold shrink product from whoever for that application?
