Did you try ordering the screen accurate Flexo® PET neon yellow braided sleeving with the black tracer from WireCare® for your Proton Pack mod, only to discover it ghosted you? If you were slimed while waiting for its return, we’ve got some great news — the sleeving has returned to the WireCare® website.
Some back story about the back ordered braided sleeving: WireCare® is new to the Proton Pack world. There was a huge influx of purchases for the sleeving; and it quickly ran out of stock. Their team only learned about the overwhelming demand for this neon Flexo® PET after reading a plug on this fan forum about the sleeving being used for the Proton Pack mod. After it was back in stock, WireHarness.com learned WireCare® worked tirelessly to ship back and new incoming orders in the order received.
WireCare® received many grateful replies (along with photos of the mods) to a letter they sent to customers who had been waiting for their orders. Many said they were thankful not only for the letter, but how WireCare® handled their back orders. In the event this product flies off the WireCare® website again because of high demand, we’ve heard Proton Pack operators need to just place an order to reserve one.
A Proton Pack pro tip we’d like to pass on after reading the fan forum commentary about frayed braided sleeving one cosplayer experienced: that can happen when scissor-cutting some sleeving types. We recommend while you’re shopping for braided sleeving to pick up a hot knife to professionally cut and seal sleeving ends. There are other products you can use in your mod too including wires and cables, heatshrink, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® products, electrical tape, Harnessflex® Conduit and spiral wrap.
