    I saw a tip on another forum to check in the sewing/craft department at Walmart for cheap rest and arrowshelf silencing material. It's called Prestofelt and it comes in 9" x 12" sheets for 97 cents. It's got the peel off backing just like moleskin but it's thicker and tougher and it's made in the good old USA.....:usa2: It comes in several colors. I got some black and some dark green.

    Walmart haters (Bunny :wave: ) can check at their local craft/hobby store, I guess....:noidea: :biggrin1:

    Will definitely try this out. I put a limbsavers dropaway pad on my vulcan and I think it is nosier then the old moleskin.

    Though I haven't tried it, when I was looking to see if the sticky backed felt was available locally I spotted velcro loop with self adhesive backing. The adhesive is pretty waterproof...it's a bit fuzzy...and you can either tease it up with a small comb to make it "fuzzier" or trim it down with scissors to make it shorter.

    If I can't find the felt do you think a strip or two of that would work?

    Anyone ever tried it?

    I've never personally tried it, but I've heard that people use it and it works great.

    I bought two big squares of sticky backed felt for 2.00 bucks a peiced a few years back at a craft store.I still havent even opened the one. Way stronger than mole skin and a 1/4 the cost.
