Hurley Banders



We also supply:

Roll of steel banding  - €15.  

The band comes in rolls of 100ft, enough to put a single band on approx. 80 hurleys. The band is the standard 16mm in width, but what is critical about it is the thickness which is 0.4mm. Other banding can vary between 0.5 and 0.8mm in thickness and as such can be too heavy for the hurley especially if you need to fit two bands. This creates an obvious weight increase to the hurley.


Box of nails - €15

500 grms / over 1000 nails in the box / 16mm long with flat head


Glue - €15

Purocol Express 310ml.
