They take black
Or like I did - black for black connector and white for white connector:



The connectors normally are black so black shrink is the best solution.
It is not possible to produce shrinks in every color so Nils just didn't want to do what the big shops do:

Coloured heat shrink looks ugly.

I have to agree with you there. The few times I've seen anything other than white or black shrink they're horribly mismatched colors and it just looks awful.

Yeah, with coloured sleeving you're trying to hide the contrast between the sleeving and the heatshrink. Even if the colour is 100% the same, you cant get rid of the texture differences, so it'll always stick out like a sore thumb.

Really

Really. The ugliness of the red is hidden by the sexiness of the black and white.

That's is subjective just like the color choice for the sleeve you use. While I agree that some colors of shrink don't match as well as others, it's all about personal preference. Calling it ugly is uncalled for though. Saying you don't think it looks as good would be a more appropriate response.

But in my opinion, what looks really bad is uneven shrink or extremely long shrink. That has a very unbalanced look to it and gives the appearance of sloppy workmanship.

I'll sum this up by saying the intent and purpose of this thread should be to offer encouragement and advice about sleeving. That means offering CONSTRUCTIVE criticisms of ones work and technique, not bashing it. The use of the word UGLY is not constructive criticism in any way, shape, or form and I find it appalling that anyone would have the audacity to use that term in a thread such as this.

Hmmm I guess if I cannot match everything to the exact color I will just get all white heatshrink for my sleeving since white sleeving will be the main color.
