Whatever the binding material, if it's too tightly wrapped, bore indentations happen. If a flute dries out, can the bamboo diameter shrink? I had a flute with non-stretch bindings where the cracks after a few days slightly reopened about 1 mm. When rehumidified and rebound with stretch nylon cord, the same cracks stayed closed even after the the shakuhachi completely dried out for a month.

Available as high quality kite string or this:



under 2 rin rattan a channel a fraction over 1 mm. deep will do

Beautiful binding job.
