"Flex tape" brand as substitute for tear-aid?

Postby sarc » Tue May 14, 2019 2:39 pm

I can get "Flex tape" brand repair tape (, less easy access to Tear-Aid type A. Does anyone have experience of Flex tape for canopy and bladder repairs? Thanks

Looks interesting, particularly because it's available in 12-inch wide rolls, twice as wide as TearAid, perfect for those really wide bladder blow-outs !

Will have to get some up here in Canada and test it for bladder repairs.
