Default Strip Teasers: how to store the damn things?!?

I just bought a 36" with 156 fish comes with mesh storage bag.

I just rigged it up and the thing looks awesome. Can't wait to pull it. I hope the water improves soon, damn!

Went to put it back in and it's kinda hard to stuff all the strips in there with out balling them up and possibly kinking them. I used 2 rubber bands to secure the arms like it was when shipped.

I sure as hell don't want to take the strips off.

Just checking....is this the best way to put this thing up?

Or is there a better way?

I figure one of y'all have a solution.

Thanks!

Roll them up and secure with a small piece of scotch tape will probably work.

I pull them all summer with a couple customers. They raise fish like crazy. Roll them up and rubber band the rolls.

That was quick!

Leave them attached to bar right?

That would work, but kind of a PITA.

Thanks!

If you use rubber bands to secure your teaser strips use the red ones made for fishing especially if they will be stored in a non climate controlled area. The red ones will just dry out and get brittle while some of the ones you get in the assortment packs will turn all gummy. Reaction with the plastic, same thing as some plastic baits do in your tackle boxes.

I've never had this happen with strip teasers. Plus, the color has nothing to do with the "gummy" factor. I get cheap, Office Depot rubber bands. They get brittle but that's it. I also use the heavy duty black rigging bands because they are stronger than hell and dry rot much slower than the other ones.

This is one of the rubber bands from the assortment pack from Office Depot. Let me be real specific on this, it was only the white ones that did it. However every white one deteriorated the same way. I used them to secure the double treble hooks on popper type lures. These were only in contact with the hooks.

That's a pretty small band isn't it? I use regular old rubber #64s in natural or black. They don't react with the plastic strips like they do with soft plastic lures or skirts. I have four strip dredges in my possession and none of them have ever had an issue with this from rubber bands.
