    Comments about PTFE Flax Shaft Packing:

    Used to repack my ski boat packing gland. Product works well once installed and properly adjusted, but was a bit of a pain to install because it tends to fray when cut. Even with a new razor blade I couldn't keep ends from fraying.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Purchased in store. Salesman recommended since it was only shaft packing they had in stock.

          Comments about PTFE Flax Shaft Packing:

          First time I've packed a stuffing box in the water! Easy job if you are careful and get all the old stuffing out effectively. Make sure your bilge pump is working and an acceptable amount of water is coming through the stern tube when you undo the main nut.

          Comments about PTFE Flax Shaft Packing:

          I went to a ACBS workshop. They showed how to change packing. The packing on my Resorter has needed replaced for years. I did not know how to do it. Easy job. Took the old boat out yesterday for a 25 mile cruise on Truman Lake and the packing did not leak. Now I need to replace the rudder packing. But have to move the gas tank....

            Brand new shaft log had been leaking for a while. Mfg rep said flax should be 5/16". Replaced existing with this low cost alternative and the leak stopped immediately

              This packing material works well. For a horrible maintenance chore, the material works into the shaft gap fairly well. The previous packing (same material) lasted over seven years and the first outer three rows were still in excellent condition. Will definitely continue using this product for my shaft packing.
