Dear Crys1s_Gam3r: (LOL)

I am doing my darnedest trying to bomb around 250+ pages of posts on this thread trying to find where, if @ all, you may have stated what products you used; sleeving, shrink, etc.

If you end up seeing this post & take a moment to reply, I would greatly appreciate it. Who knows, maybe it will help someone else down the line ...

Take care,

He may have experimented with other sleeve, but I've never seen him post anything but MDPC-X sleeve and shrink here or in any of the other threads he's posted in.

Though for black, its not worth the extra cost and outrageous shipping to the U.S. where FurryLetters can sell you a roll of 100' for $20 usd plus $3 shipping
You get what you pay for i suppose; i'm in Australia, so i pay more for shipping than you ever would.

Correct... you get a cookie, or a star; whatever it is nowdays.

You would know the difference personally though, and always wish you had MDPC-X in your system until you slowly go crazy and strip all your sleeving in a rush of manic sleeve-depression.

Correct
Another star-cookie

Depends if you're doing it for yourself or others; others are easy to impress, impressing yourself is the hardest job in the world (to me anyway, except when i ****... then i'm just all about me).

If you're going to order some MDPC-X and other stuff, why not sit back, plan and order enough (or extra) MDPC-X all at once and get on with the job!?

I wish i did... i've had like, 5 orders now. Shipping and time is a killer, but i always think it's worth it.
As you say, i'm on the koolaid... but happily so.

In a nutshell, yes the MDPC-X is the best sleeve. I don't think anyone in their right mind would argue that point, but how much better depends. When it comes to the black from FurryLetters the difference is noticable if you are looking at it when it's 2 inches in front of your face. Once it's in the case I defy ANYONE to be able to tell the difference from more than a foot away.

When it comes to other colors though, there is a HUGE difference that you can see from 5 feet away or more between MDPC-X and Furry Letters.

If installed correctly and with care it would be difficult to tell the difference from a couple of feet away which is a normal viewing distance for most people.
tbh, TechFlex really only makes a quality sleeve in their "clean-cut" black-high weave sleeve. The other pet, or whatever is called, color sleeve is low quality and low weave that its pretty much see through in most cases. I've been tempted to go w/ the mdpc-x color sleeve but the cost always deters me. I'm not sure if they have a U.S. distributor or retailer that can sell it and for decent shipping. I have yet to check out koolertek, its on my to do list

Zeke, I exclusively use MPDC-X sleeving and heatshrink products.
post #2586 of 14576
@digital steve: I will honestly say that I'll probably never buy black sleeve from MDPC-X. Colours yes but not black because Furryletter's black sleeve is so close to MDPC-X that it doesn't matter. The shipping from Furryletters is cheap and I pay JUST as much for shipping as you do since I live in New Zealand. $3US for International Shipping is great. Only takes a week or two before it arrives which suits me just fine. No sense in paying 15 euro for stuff that is very similar when you can get the black techflex cleancut for such a great price

I am a big fan of both Furryletters and MDPC-X so don't be thinking I'm getting all biased up in here haha.

Your comment seems down right Fanboysm. Regardless of what is available to you, you can not say that everything else is trash when you have no proof or evidence, or even pics, research, what ever. there are folks that can only afford so much and the FurryLetters is really one the best bang for your buck high quality sleeve here in the U.S. and your comments only detriment people's expectation of TechFlex/FurryLetters who are possibly looking in the the cleancut sleeve. Take a day to read this entire thread and TechFlex clean-cut and FurryLetters come up a lot as its recommendable. Its like saying "I own a radeon 5970, everything is crap". my

You need to qualify that statement bolded in red as it is NOT accurate. Yes his Black Clean Cut is the best alternative, but the other colors he carries is the cheapest and worst looking there is and should be avoided if at all possible if one is looking for a quality looking job. If you want anything other than Black your only viable alternative to MDPC-x is the better quality KoolerTek sleeve. It isn't quite as good as the Clean Cut Black from Furry Letters, but it is 10 times better than the crappy colored sleeve Furry Letters carries and in many cases is actually less expensive than his.

My whole premise is to point out ONLY the black TechFlex Cleant Cut High Weave sleeve. the other color stuff TEchFlex makes and FurryLetters offers, aint that good imo. I posted that a few comments at the top. Sorry, yes my whole rant is to say FurryLetters sells a great quality black sleeve called TechFlex Cleancut which is high weave count sleeve.

Now you're talkin'.

I only have one complaint with Nils and MDPC-X and that is his unrealistic minimum quantities. That's why I'll probably never order from him as I would only use about 10 to 20% of the sleeve I would order from him. I just refuse to buy 10 meters of sleeve when I would only need about 5 or 6 feet of it. The only one I would even consider getting from him is the Yellow because there is no alternative to it from anyone other than the crappy see thru yellow from FL.
