Looks like you made those from pvc. I had a friend that did that and they worked surprising well. Plastic is plastic motherfuckers. No shame in trying to save some money! Hope they work well for you too!

I've heard the best thing to do is get the BLACK PVC, as it is a little softer, and handles abuse better. I believe it is aimed for sewage/drain out of the house.

It's pretty cheap. Just bring a peg to the hardware store and find some that is a little snug, and cut to size.

I'll probably do that after i break these (which will probably be very soon). I made these out of empty silicone tubes when i got really bored, so they're just cheap average plastic.

Wrap them in duct tape, it greatly increases the pvc's life.

My friend did this. He said that its made to take high impacts with no problems. Seemed to slide aswell as anything else and didn't wear down too fast. And he had one that fit perfectly over his Shadow Little Ones without having to cut it. Only problem he was having is they would slide off his pegs on sloppier grinds. Im sure someone could figure something simple out to hold them in place. Shit, could probably just use a piece of tape haha.

Well I broke the back one off doing a fast feeble on like the roughest ledge in town, so its no surprise it broke. The front one withstood a few smiths before it popped off. The next prototype sleeve will be some sort of pvc piping from my local hardware store, I'll be back with results soon.
