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...

        • 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.

        Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

        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 huge help

        By Med Hed Drummer

        from Michigan

        Comments about Ahead Grip Tape:

        These grips work great. I play shows weekly and every time on stage my hands sweat profusely, these really help so I'm not throwing my sticks everywhere. The only problem is they last for about 3 or 4 shows then they need to be changed. Overall a huge help.

        GREAT

        By Nick11255

        from Pamplin, VA

        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.
