We were excited to make this size for the ultimate mobile hunter and the man that made hunting public land cool again. This size like many size Stealth Strips® can be used for many different gear silencing applications, but other sizes are more versatile.
Although the tube is 1” square the 4” wide piece that we originally cut for this stick left a small gap (about 1/8”) when wrapping this stick without stretching it to cover. We don’t think you should have to stretch it to not leave the gap, and the extra 1/8” serves this purpose. It appears that the weight reduction holes added some profile to the stick that required a little extra material.
