    ive been mounting fish for about a year now and I always used that 3M tape with little holes in it but was thinking about trying silk span is there a big difference ???
     
  2. Big difference. the silk span is not as flexible as the 3m transpore. Each has its place. but whre there will be kids around I too use transspor.

    Slick Something smells fishy?

    I started using the heavy silk span and white lightning for a thicker and stronger fin.

    Silk span or lens paper with Tuff-fin. Excellent finish and very durable.

    3M tape does nothing. Use the silk span and various glues. Use thinner silk for smaller fish and med for bigger fish.
