Anyone try dipping your trophy taker launcher in liquid electrical tape? I did mine last night and it looks awesome. Also, seems to have dulled some noise vs the mole skin I had on previously. I hope is wears well.
I bought it from a place called Fleet Farm in WI. It comes in a variety of colors and is sold in their boating section. Basically, it's used for waterproofing electrical wire connections. It's made by a company called Starbrite (normally makes boating stuff). The arrow slides real smooth and quiet accross the launcher and after a few dozen shot...looks perfect. I poured the tape into a 35mm film container and then dipped the shakey hunter launcher in a few times (letting dry for about 5 minutes between coatings). I see Overtons.com sells it (it comes in a yellow can)
You can buy a product called Brush-on electrical tape from almost any auto parts stores such as NAPA,CarQuest,etc.It's made buy a company named
North American oil company.I have a can in my tool box that I use to seal exterior electrical connections on cars
The liquid tape has been holding up great so far...although, I don't shoot as often as many folks on this site. I would guess that I have about 200 shot through it. Hardly notice any wear. The only issue is at the point of coming to full draw, there is a sound if the arrow bounces slightly on the launcher. Kind of like the arrow shaft doing a small bounce on hard rubber. Not too noticable, but more so than mole hair. The sound really isn't there if you draw much slower.
