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.

deanno,

Being an electrician myself I have not heard of liquid tape. Where did you get it? Sounds interesting.

Good tip. :thumbs_up

I know Wal-Mart sells a rubber coating, is it similar to this. Sounds like it will work great.

Thanks for the idea.

Where to Buy

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)

There is another type also that you can dip your tools in to insulate them. I have seen it at walmart also and some of the electrical supply stores.

I've used that stuff to dip the clasps on treestand hanging belts. It cuts down on the metal clanging sounds when putting up a stand.

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.
