Is there any way i can cover up that blazing red on my pilot when i play woodsball? Would camo tape be good?

i bought a roll of this stuff and its awesome. you might need two rolls to be safe. depending on how you wrap it, one might not be enough.

You can get it from any outdoors store. You can use the stuff made for Bows, however, I play woodsball all the time and I never hide my markers. They are not exactly camouflaged either.

But to each his own.

Man, that thing was UGLY! :rolleyes: It did cover up the bright blue, though....actually, I really liked it camo - taped!

Use the CLOTH type of camo tape, if at all possible. It wraps around corners and crevices much better. It also keeps it's color for longer periods, and it won't fade like the vinyl stuff.

I bought mine at Wal-Mart in the sporting goods area for like 4 bucks a roll, but that was MANY years ago. Who knows if they have it or if it's 4 bucks a roll anymore?

Is this (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5824314) what you were talking about?

yeah, they still have it. I usually get it for like $3.50 a roll, at least here in Lewiston. I didn't think it was sticky enough so I used some spray adhesive over the top of it, but that was just for my hopper. That stuff you linked looks like it might be better than what I got.

I'm not sure if that's the stuff or not. I was just at Wally World, but didn't think to look for any. But, it was a long time ago, like I said. It does look like it could be it, though.

However, I do know the cloth tape I used was plenty sticky, so I didn't have to use any other adhesive. Good thing was it didn't leave any residue behind on the gun - of course I changed it every couple of months so who knows what would happen after a longer period of time.

Edit *** I just enlarged that picture and it's definitely NOT the stuff I used to use. It appears to be some kind of heavyweight stretchy stuff - not what I used at all. It does look pretty decent though.
