Yep, that's what I use. Last week at Bugs and Bourbon my buddy's hackle plier rubber tip cover came off.  I broke out the heat shrink tubing and a lighter, 2 minutes later he was good to go and thought using the shrink tubing was a great idea.  Unfortunately I couldn't take credit for the idea. 

Neither can I!  I'm not that original!!

Shrink wrap tubing works as well.

That tubing wasn't very available then, painters tape was. Although I now have many sizes and colors of heat shrink, if i was doing a new set of pliers I'd still use the tape, because I believe it has a softer surface.

I figure to always work with what's handy - sort of a :six of one and a half dozen of the other" type situation - you can't go wrong either way.
