Super slick tape. Bag rider material. What's it called, where do I get it? Mike
Plastic supply has UHMW tape.
See Benchrite.com. Steve has both the clear and the true Teflon tape.
Teflon is good, but UHMW is a little slicker and cheaper if you go to a plastic supply.
Strangely enough, I just bought some from Benchrite.com, and the packaging said "UHMW" right on it.
I bought some of the Slick Silver Material that Protektor uses in their front rest and rear bags directly from them.
I bought this. We'll see if it's good. Mike
I have that same roll and it works just fine
Update. This product is no good for my application. To thick, won't wrap around the stock easily.
I found some 3" rolls, thin enough to easily wrap the butt and the 90deg angled aluminum rails on a Kestros ZR. Really glides well against 3M slick bags. I thought I bought it off Amazon but I will dig out the roll and see if I can find a manufacturer/distributor. It is a 10-15ft roll and was very reasonably priced IIRC.
Not sure the obsession of making the rifle glide like bearings in bags. I like a little resistance but smooth. Personal preference I guess...
No obsession here. Just want no jerky. Smooth with alittle resistance ok. Mike
Good old leather and bag wax will get ya what you are looking for...
The uhmw tape works well on clear coated stocks....
Sinclair has UHMW and Teflon tape
For grins and giggles, try using plain finished leather and rub a little HBN on it.
