I have used EVERY brand and type of grip tape out there, and none of them compare to Ahead. The quality, performance, and endurance are all better than any other that I have tried. If it's falling off after you put it on, you're not putting it on right, or not securing the end well enough. I have used Ahead sticks and tape for several years, and they have NEVER let me down. I have also used the Ahead tape on other brands of sticks like Zildjian and ProMark, and it works just as well on them as it does on the Ahead sticks. It's a little pricey, but well worth the investment. If you're new to wrapping sticks, slow down, take your time, and make sure you do it right, and it will last a very long time. The tape I'm using now has been on my sticks for more than a year, and it doesn't even look worn. Well worth the time and money!!!

I got this tape about a year ago because my grip used to have serious problems. Its easy to put on but you only get one shot. Within 2 weeks the tape unraveled itself and fell off. The tape on the other stick is still there and only recently started to shred a little. It works fine but imagine if your car only started have the time or you only got paid half the time or metallica only Completly owned half the time. You would'nt like it much would you...

Go with electric tape

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

This grip tape is nice but electrical tape gives you a good drip, it's cheap, and with different colors you can design your own tape. If you really want some squish to your grip than buy the grip tape for tinnes raquets and use that (a lot cheaper!).

            • Enhance Grip

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            I have been using this grip tape with the Ahead sticks for about a year now. It's very easy to put the tape on the stick, and greatly enhances the grip. I have had some problems with my grip strength due to Carpal Tunnel, and the grip tape really gives me a great feel on the stick. I would recommend this to anyone with grip issues. I would like to see a quantity pack offered at a discounted price. It gets costly buying individual packs. One pack usually lasts about 2 weeks with everyday use.

            Haven't dropped a stick sense I got it, after a set my hands don't sting and are not as tired. But after only 4 weeks the wraps do show signs of wear, but they are cheap enough and good enough I won't quit using them.

            A must for Ahead stick owners

            By Kynlore

            from Connecticut

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            I have used this tape on my Ahead sticks for years, since the sticks first came out. The tape has a non-tacky, but non-slip rubbery grip. It does take some apply it properly, but once you do it doesn't move. The last application has lasted over 2 years of playing. It took 2 years for the material to break down from friction and sweat. I wouldn't buy anything else.

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            I absolutely love this. The stock ahead stick lacked a lot of grip and there is a reason why Ahead makes grip tape, it completes the greatest sticks in the world. If you have Ahead sticks, YOU NEED THIS PRODUCT!!!

            Overall, this is the best grip tape i have ever used. There is only one problem: the tape at the top seems to peel off after you use the tape for a long while. Otherwise this is great grip tape!

            This is a great product to get if you are having trouble with gripping your sticks. Exceptional grip and comfort. Reduces shock and is comfortable on your hands. Great buy, much better than masking or electrical tape, contrary to what you've heard.

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            This is the best tape i've had yet. If anyone has trouble wrapping the sitcks, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY!! It isn't tacky or sticky, but an almost rubbery grip. Great overall product, prolongs stick life, reduces shock, increases grip. Makes the stick a bit thicker, but no worries because it's totally worth it.

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            This stuff is a life saver. I use it on all of my sticks. It works great IF you apply ir properly. You have to wrap the sticks correctly. You can't be in a hurry. Before I used this I was throwing sticks all the time - now I NEVER do. If it's falling off, you're not putting it on right.

            Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

            I always use these. It helps to grip the stick whether your hands are very dry or if they are sweaty. They absorb the shock when hitting hard or playing for long periods of time. This is a great product. As far as the kid that said that they come off of the sicks...well he may not have wraped them tight enough and followed the directions. I have used this on probably hundreds of pairs of sticks over the years and never have had a problem.

            I like the ahead tape, I used it with my aheads, and when i snapped my pair of those, they worked great on my novas, heres a tip, the ahead tape looks cooler, but just put some electrical tape up top to hold 'um. My only problem is it wore out after a while, quicker than I expected
