The felt on my N12 tube rings has come off.  Some of it is lost.  Can anyone point me to something compatible?

It looks to be 1-inch (25mm) wide and about 1mm thick.  Although mine is pretty compacted.  Do you think this would work?

Hi Michael,

 

The width is important, it must be bigger than the tube ring width. A thickness of 1mm is ok for me, as it needs to be strong enough.

 

Best regards.

Sorry, I got it wrong, I understood you were looking for flocking paper for the inside of the tube... :huh:

The felt on my ASA tube rings looks very similar to Protostar flocking.
