Hex Shaft boot

Has anyone ever tried to patch the boot on the hex shaft instead of replacing it? I checked mine today and it was in pretty bad shape. It was still clamped good on both ends but there was two or three places where it was separated. I put duct tape over the splits and then took electrical tape and started at one end and wrapped it good all the way to the other end. It made a pretty neat looking fix but I don't know whether it will hold up or not. Just wondering if anyone else has tried this.

As suggested get the black boots. I got some aftermarket cheap crap gray boots. Made from junk that cracked in two mowings. Got the black boots , no issues since. Seem like siliconized rubber.
