Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
cheap, shrinks evenly, very tough, works great with a heat gun, stays flexible over time (years in my case) comes in many sizes, easy to read
Cons:
some of it gets crunched up in shipping. Not a problem really, just stretch it out and into shape. It will shrink back when heat is applied. hard to remove onless you use a really sharp knife.
Other:
this stuff is my go to heat shrink tubing for all but mill spec vulcanizing requirements. stretchs over large bumps yet doesn't get thin on the bump when shrunk.
Bottomline:
I buy a lot of this stuff and with layering and practice projects come out looking great and done correctly.
