I think that Coax-seal will continue to be a very viable option.
They look like a really good idea -- and the cost reflects that.
CoaxSeal is only an option if used correctly (I personally hate the
stuff). DO NOT apply CoaxSeal directly to a connector - IT WON'T COME OFF. Put
layer or two of Scotch 33 or 88 on the joint first and then put the vapor
wrap layer on. (And then 2-3 top layers of the aforementioned Scotch tape.)
It's not the CoaxSeal I hate, it's the fact that amateurs put it right
on the connector, rendering it useless for future use. It's a one-time
Professionals use a vapor wrap butyl rubber products such as the ones
from db Products or Andrew which do peel right off of a connector. Do yourself
a favor and get the real stuff.
