    i round the ends of a strip of good quality black insulation tape and stick it on the lasts for a couple of years, then i replace it with the same.from a distance you can't tell what it's made of.
    before that i bought some hi tec ones from the shop until i finally got fed up with them coming unstuck.

    Get a Shimano XT "shark fin" and zip tie it (can sometimes be found on ebay for all of 99p!).
