I am looking for a bulk spool of silicone tubing similar to the G7 worm protect tubes sold under the G7 label. I have provided the specs below. I am looking for the 7mm tubing

ID OD wall thickness
4mm 0.16in 0.20in 0.02in
5mm 0.20in 0.26in 0.03in
6mm 0.24in 0.30in 0.03in
[b]7mm 0.28in 0.33in 0.03in
8mm 0.31in 0.43in 0.06in
9mm 0.35in 0.41in 0.03in
10mm 0.39in 0.45in 0.03in

I haven't found anything online. Any help is appreciated.

I use o-rings and heat shrink. I am looking to go in a different direction.

coldandcolder.com sells a variety of sizes by the foot. Works great and cheap, too. Way stronger than o-rings or heat shrink.

Silicon tubing is available from Grainger. Bought 3' and will never run out.

Not many Braums in Houston. I do love a trip to Braums. I went to the first one in Vernon, Texas. It was awesome.

3/8 i.d. x 1/2 o.d. is the most comfortable fit, but it's a little loose. I prefer 1/4 i.d. x 3/8 o.d. for versatility since it works with skinnier baits, too. You have to stretch your 5 inch senko as your sliding on the tube and gradually work it to the middle. It's a very snug fit and sits flush with the senko, so less obvious. Tube section only needs to be 1/4 to 1/3 inch wide. Run your hook about an 1/8 of an inch through the tube, not through the senko. That way you can easily change baits if you want a different color or if you want to downsize to a smaller or skinnier bait.

Arsenal fishing sells it pre cut


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Arsenal is $6.99 for 50 in one size plus shipping, so over $10. TW reviews say it's thin and tears easily. You can get 4 feet in 4 different sizes from coldandcolder.com for about $10 shipped and have every senko from 6 to 3 inches covered. You can rig at least 36 hooks with a foot of tubing and it's thick medical grade that will not tear off the hook. Start at 3/8i.d. x 1/2o.d. for 6 inch senkos and the next 3 smaller sizes for all the rest.
