Default Repacking Baffles

What do you guys use to repack baffles? I've just put dual Cycle Shacks on my bagger, and I want to tone it down just a bit by wrapping the baffle. But I don't want it to blow out too soon, I want something to last. Any ideas? Anything out there that lasts a long time in baffles?

Default Repack options.

I reckon woven fiberglass would last a while or even heavy grade steel wool. You might even try the stainless steel scouring pads as well. They are of a pretty thick guage and won't rust out. Or you could use a combination of glass and steel. Another idea would to uses the asbestods exhaust wrap.
I hope this is helpful.
