Where do you get your strips for your pixel trees?  I see HolidayCoro and Boscoyo have them.  They are close in price, but are they similar in durability?  Are there any other places?  I thought I saw a website that was selling them in rolls, any idea who that might be?

I meant to edit the thread title.  I'm looking for pixel mounting strips for pixel bullets.

Ah, that does change the meaning some!

For my existing pixel tree, I am using 3/4 inch PVC that I split on a table saw and then drilled holes for the pixels.  Quite a few photos at:

This year I am rebuilding that tree and going to 100 pixels at a closer spacing.  I am going with a custom spacing version of the Boscoyo strips.

I bought a 20 pack through environmental led for  $27  They come in 8 foot sections of black strip for nodes.

The shipping is under $5 there for 2 of the 20 packs... Way less shipping than everyone else. $4.95 shipping.

Just a thought

Honestly not sure. I've used them the last couple years for spt-1 wire. Just happened to search their site this year and found those pixel strips.

I use the Boscoyo strips, going on my third season with them.  Nothing against HC but the Boscoyo stuff is a beefier material.  Have had to deal with the high winds of the midwest and it held up.

I just made mine out of plastic Plumbers tape using a piece of 2x4  with a few headless (cut them off) finishing nails and a 12mm Step reamer in the cordless.

The pins hold the tape centered on the clearance holes  in the 2x4.  (I do sets of 4 at a time, every 4th hole, which matched the max distance on my HC bullet nodes )

Got my strips from HC 2 years ago and no issues.

I have also ordered props from Boscoyo. They are also excellent.
