    Not 100% sure, but I think it's a spray on application. Don't remember the name. I guess in this situation, it's so you can't find your MD.

    Looks like its going to be a type of sports tape. Zooming in on the pictures shows texture and hard lines at the edges of the tape. I've wrapped shotguns with similar stuff in the past. If you're looking to pick some up Wal-Mart usually has it in their hunting and outdoor areas.

    Yeah, it looks like tape. Makes the detector real easy to find if you set it down in tall grass. Lol.

    It's self clinging fabric tape...i use it on mine...but i use black.

    Very cheap to but and much lighter and wayyy less bulkier than those silly neoprene ones.

    It can also be reused over and over.

    Ya know, I might give it a try. I've been on a long dry spell for a silver coin, perhaps if they can't see my detector, I could sneak up on one and...…...

    Hockey stick tape works well enough for 4 bucks. I could care less about looks, I wanted a somewhat more protective outer skin on all of it.

    Mainly to protect the coil wire from getting caught while is rolling around the back seat.

    Hockey stick tape -- excellent idea! (However, anyone who wants to try it and is unfamiliar -- get CLOTH hockey stick tape, not "friction" tape).

    What a smashing idea, you're going to need another detector to find the one you just put down. Lol

    The adhesive on some tape will set like glue over time and be very difficult to remove. If you are going to go to that much trouble how about having it powder coated or chromed? Go old school with some flames maybe.
