Phillistran gets its' strength from the fibers inside while the black
plastic sheath only protects those fibers. If the sheath is not
compromised, the inside should be O.K. I would pay particular attention to
the ends where the grips are located and the ends where there should be a
cap glued on. The cap was to prevent water wicking up into the fiber and
then freezing, spitting the sheath and exposing the fibers.
I am in the planning stages for a new tower and intend to use Phillistran
and have noticed that NOBODY sells used Phillistran on the swap boards.
