Sleeve for "battle" rope

Hello all, I was wondring if anyone has a place where they have gotten a sleeve for their "battle" rope? Mine is of course making a mess in the garage and I cannot find a place that will sell me just the sleeve if anyone has an idea it is greatly appreciated! Thanks and good luck to all those in Regionals!
Thank you.

This might be your best bet:

1.5" fire hose - don't know how easy it will be to feed it through. Maybe look for 1.75" to have a little room.

Re: Sleeve for "battle" rope

How about a heat shrink sleeve made for pipes? I don't know anything about them other than they exist. You would want something flexible and lightweight so it doesn't hurt the rolling action of the rope much. MuscleDriver puts polyester boots on the ends of their ropes, which have got to be heat shrink, maybe just the right stuff for you.

I would sell your current Battle rope and buy a new one with a nylon casing

Much easier than trying to do the casing yourself

The amount of money it would cost to tape the whole rope would be quite a bit plus it would look ugly
