IW Hockey BladeTape Hockey Blade Grip Pads
Comments: Decided to give this a try to see if it worked as advertised. Only had a chance to play one game with it so far, but I was very impressed. They do result in a much lighter feeling stick and the grip is much better than traditional tape. I've seen some reviews claiming they don't last as long as advertised, but I can't comment on that yet since I've only had one game so far. But so far, very good.

Comments: Not great for ice hockey, but works well for roller since you don't want too much friction on the bottom of the stick. Very durable though.

Comments: i tried using this product for the first time to see if it was better then traditional tape but I couldn't get through 3 games with it. At first I really enjoyed this product because the grip was unbelievable (i was able to puck up the puck lacrosse style which is something i never learned or did without this) and was super lightweight. But after my first game with it I noticed the bottom of my blade was starting to take damage from the ice n there was already a couple parts of the tape that lifted off the blade, as the directions said i pushed it down and continued with it. The next day i went to open roller hockey and started having more problems with it, occasionally with stick handling the puck would roll up on me randomly and I couldn't shoot the puck off the toe of my blade. That evening i also had an inline game where I had to swap for my backup stick after the first period because i got too frustrated with the puck rolling up on me and not being able to shoot with
certain parts of my stick. When i got home i had to use a screwdriver to pry off the rubber tape and it left an incredibly sticky glue which i just taped over because I couldn't remove it with anything (alcohol, oil, soap, box cutters, screwdriver). Overall i was disappointed in the product, unless you're using the stick for tricks just use regular stick tape.
