Default Loop protector

Where is the best place to get a couple of feet rubber tube loop protector. The anti-chafe kind for 150lb test.

Thanks

Just go to any tubing website and order some and then cut it in 1" sections. The size you want that will work on anything up to and including 400 lb mono is: .156(4 mm) o.d. x .106(207 mm). Or, if that's too much work, just go here: http://www.jmtackle.com/browse.cfm/a...ing/2,189.html

Cat, Jinki has Stainless steel ones that work great. they are pre cut so you don't have to mess with anything. I use the 1.6mm on 150lb mono.

Nylon thimbles and these Jinki stainless (and also plastic) springs work best.

I personally don't like springs. I use a product from J&M Tackle that is like a heavy duty plastic straw and sized to fit different line diameters (Anti-Chafe tubing). I find this plastic tubing works great. I wish I knew who manufactured this stuff. Do you sell this stuff Joe?

I would like 10 feet of rubber loop protectors. Something that will fit 200lb mono.

(jmtackle wants like 8 bucks to ship)

Terminator - I see we are in the same location (Blackwood for me)

Anyway if you could pm me a price, that would be great.

Thanks

i recently changed over to using Teflon tubing (normal wall, not thin wall).
a few shops have it, but i bought large spools (50') off amazon.
Main reasons for changing over are that the tubing will better disperse pressure, super slick (hey its teflon!), more stealth (opaque/cloudy white), and smaller overall diameter which allows me to use it on smaller hooks as the eye of some hooks is only so big and some anti-chafing springs are relatively thick.

Let me know if you're interested and i can send you the link(s) for the stuff on amazon.

I can't remember if the gauge # increases as size increase or opposite.
Something tells me as gauge # increase it's probably gets skinnier.

The two gauges i bought were to cover 80-100# test mono and 100-150# test mono. There are other gauges for thinner and heavier available.
I don't know what's up with the pricing as some stuff is super dirt cheap and some quite expensive, just depends of gauge.

I know i don't need 50' as that's more than a lifetime supply, but i could easily sell a bit to some buddies if i wished.

There is also a thin wall version, but it may be too thin, don't know as i haven't personally tried those.

Most common use of this stuff is as an electrical insulator for electronics and such. Some have found and bought it at Fry's as well.

As the gauge number gets bigger the diameter gets smaller.
