Very effective.

By Timmy Myslinski

from Mesa, AZ

This grip tape great for creating extra grip on your drumsticks, and is very easy to apply. I would especially recommend this tape if you use the Ahead drumsticks, since the metal is a little awkward to hold onto. The tape has a rubbery feel to it, and is extremely grippy. You'll never drop a stick again with this tape. The one problem I had with this tape is that it is very rough on your fingers. I play rather hard, and I've noticed that after about 30 minutes of playing , the skin on my fingers begins to blister and tear apart, far worse than with traditional wood sticks. There have been times that I've had to apply six or seven bandages to my fingers during a single practice, just because it was too painful to continue without them. If you buy this tape, and play nearly as hard as I do, you'll definitely need to find a way around this.

the best grip tape around

By Jonathon

from Kansas City, MO

This grip tape is really adhesive, lasts forever and looks awesome with its black authority. I can't say anything more. I guess I'd have to admit though at being a little peeved that they only include enough for one pair, but I'll live, and you will too. Buy these, and get some Ahead sticks for them to match with.

I tried other grip tape brands such as Pro Mark and Vater and the Ahead tape is by far the best i've used. The sticky on the tape lasts alot longer than the other brands and holds up much better. The only con i have with it is that you only get enough tape to wrap on set of sticks....with ProMark you get enough to wrap two sets of sticks. If your in the hunt for some good tape then this is definately what you need.
