I use to have a long and short can am tubes, Handle ends had a few screws holding it on and the cone had three annoying small screws that were tricking to line up and cone needed sealed on each time or it would suck air, Tapepro just pops out the back and the cone has two thumb screws and an o ring to seal it, And its a bigger tube, And double sealed plunger..............Rolls Royce model...............Wonder what the Columbia's like..............I think buck said once the big shots where not very good?

Re: mud bead


I have two CanAms, a Better than Ever and a new Columbia tube. Don't like the BTE.... Sucks air past plunger. A bit disappointed in the Columbia as it lets a bit of mud slip past the plunger and makes for more cleaning. The CanAms work very well- no complaints.

I also have applicators and tin heads in Columbia, BTE, CanAm, TapePro and Red Diamond and they all interchange nicely from tube to tube.
I have a couple nylon applicator heads by Columbia and they are very tight fitting on any of my tubes.
Around here the TapePro tube is much more expensive so I have yet to try one.

Re: mud bead


From what iv heard in all threads about tubes bte are not very good Columbia and can ams have mixed reviews and the tapepro is loved by all and over here they are pretty much the cheapest to get so tapepro is my next women to. Use and abuse lol cant wait
