Itís still not a proper method to use though, and shouldnít be recommended. Even on the roll, you can squeeze the tape and distort it.

Dunno the answer to that one; like I acknowledged, don’t know much about cue-making or repair.
it seems like that type of tape could be better layered evenly than any other type of tape I’ve seen.

Have you any experience with this? I learned this by working on some cues a well known cuemaker did that way. And they worked fine. Thin white masking tape wrapped on correctly is a good method. You can also compress Irish linen roll, but several thousandths of masking tape works fine. Saying something is not a proper method based on theory is not proper. This is not theory for me it comes from experience.

Nobody else knows the answer to it either. There isn't any. It is easy to evenly layer masking tape. Teflon tape is manageable because it grabs onto threads. If you had to evenly layer Teflon tape on a 12" long smooth cylinder it wouldn't seem like that any longer.

In very short order, the linen cord would bond to itself and be completely free of the handle and you would have a 12" free spinning linen cord tube on the handle with Teflon tape wanting to bunch up underneath it.

I agree with Mr. Hightower and Mr. Peterson. There is nothing set in stone. I've seen many methods and try to understand each one.

Why do people keep bringing this type of logic up? Itís been done this way for 60 years, so it must be the right way!!!! I would never trust todayís masking tape for this job. I would never trust any tape for this type of job ever. This is not theory, it comes from actual experience telling me masking tape fails over time. Exposed or not. Why risk something with a product that has a known failure rate?
