Unhappy Heat shrink sleeve diameter - continued

A typical racket grip diameter (L1-L5) would be around 30-40mm range only. How would a 6inch sleeve be heated to wrap around the bevels nicely without bumps, overlays & creases?

I came across a range of heat shrink tube at a local electronics specialty store, with prices increasing exponentially (per m) as diameter goes up. 150mm diameter is the largest they have. That's about the 6" you mentioned above. Can't even imagine how much the shopkeeper will charge for it!

If it's really 6", then makes all sense in the world to order from TW. It's only $2 per piece. No amount of bulk buying from outside hardware/specialty stores can match this price

Hi JLambert,

Or did you mean 6" for the sleeve circumference? Divided by "pi" = 3.142xxx, that'll return an actual diameter of 48.38mm. At least this is more like it, no?
