FLATLINE RUBBER TARANTULA SERIES These tabs are made from 100% natural rubber. The strands are flat which gives a huge advantage over round. It really comes down to basic hydrodynamics, the reason a water ski or paddle is flat versus round. A flat surface gives a larger surface area which will displace more water than a rounded surface. If you take that basic concept over to fishing you can understand why flat will have more movement in the water when compared to round rubber. I have had countless emails from people asking where they can find flat rubber. Well here it is in tab form! The tabs measure a full 1 ¼” wide and a little over 5 ½ inches long with 22 strands and can be mixed with silicone or used by themselves. If you have never used flat rubber you should give it a try. I can’t help but think of my grandfather cutting strands for jig making out of old bicycle inner tubes, crazy how times have changed. PLEASE NOTE! This flatline rubber product can not be used with Skirt Tools. This product is intended to be hand-tied.
