Can't find Tommy Tape

Recommended Posts

I bought some at Eden Prairie Wal-mart last year.

Tommy-tape is the product name, but I think its sold under a brand name.

Look for silicon tape, Tommy Tape is the brand name for silicon tape. Last year I bought a roll at Walmart in the hardware section, and this year I picked up a roll at Mill's Fleet in the plumbing department.

I tried Fleet too. Same cross-eyed response as all the others. I'll go back and just buy whatever silicone tape I can find. I'm sure it all works the same. Thanks.

Isn't it just Electrical tape? That's what I've always used.

Nope JPZ the silicone tape when taken off doesn't leave the sticky residue that electric tape leaves. I myself always use electric tape but there is a difference.

Yup... the guys above have covered it. I've used both "Tommy Tape", and another brand of silcone tape. Its all the same stuff. Remember: you don't need to use too much... it streeeeeeetchs.

I just picked some up at Wal-Mart in Grand Forks absed on a previous post. They had some in the plumbing area. They did have some of the same or similar called Tommy Tape in the area with the packing tape too. It works awesome! I even cut off the slider type reel clips and replaced it with this tape. Cool stuff!

I've gone to several hardware stores and even Walmart and can't find this stuff. Is this the brand name? Everyone looks at me funny when I ask for it. I've seen the silicone tape already, but was looking for the stuff called Tommy Tape.

You will love the stuff. When I bought my first Thorne Bros rod I was thinking "I'm paying this much for a rod and I have to tape my reel on?" But now all I buy are Tennessee handles that I need to tape to. Very good feel even in very cold weather.

I finally found this stuff. Like others said, it's silicon tape (self fusing repair tape). I found the Tommy Tape made by Duck. I found at a hardware store with all the other electrical tapes. I attached my reel and think this stuff is the answer. It stretches so you don't need much. I like the no residue factor and actually the feel of it on the rod. It's rubbery and is good to -40 degrees or colder.

I got the cross-eyed look when I asked for silicone Tommy Tape at the local Ace Hardware a couple days ago.

So I asked where the electrical tape was, found a roll of $5.95 Tommy Tape next to it, and the salesman made another face when I paid for it.
