LOC stopped carrying their phenolic line. Anyone know of another source?

The largest GL carries I think is 4"

T'would be nice if PML added 5.5" tubing to their phenolic line.

My preference for liners/casting tubes for 6" x .188" wall hardware.

Jason, at LOC, says he has some 5.5" coupler phenolic in inventory; 44" lengths. I didn't ask about body tube. I use the coupler tubing for sleeving my body tubes.

Maybe he thought you were asking about body tube, while I was asking for coupler. Jason has always been spot-on with my component requests.

5.5" is one of the few blue tube sizes that is available. Not phenolic but if it helps...
I always thought it was vulcanized phenolic, but the about page claims it's not. At any rate, it works like phenolic, so likely a good substitute.
