I used clear tubing instead of tape. It was a pita to get on but its never coming off unlike electrical tape. I could get around 1100 shots off of a 70 45k if i really push it. The size you need is 5/8" ID. & 3/4" OD. To get it on, place the tubing in very hot water to make it plyable then slide it over the font portion of the end cap. Then screw the top hat to the end cap and work the tubing onto top hat with your fingernails. It's a pita and a little time consuming but you will never have to redo it. I will get pics up asap of what I am talking about.
