Hey so i want to avoid barricade rash on the scope if i can help it and im looking for options on which scope tape or tape in general is the best for protecting the scope.

Thanks!

The coban works awesome (pic above shows it). The key is not to wrap too tight. If you wrap really tight over time as it gets weathered it can leave a residue that's hard to remove.

10 pack for about 10 bucks. I have wrapped several scopes multiple times with a single 10 pack and I have plenty more. It's cheap enough that when it gets funky from the sun or whatever, I just replace it.

It also works well for "taping" on Vortex Defender scope caps that don't like to stay in place. Little bit of this stuff around them and they don't move at all.
