If you're a drummer that goes through drum sticks often, this may be an expensive accessory for you.
I ultimately used duct tape to hold the wrap on the stick as the tape that Vater supplies gets destroyed quickly with a few rim shots. I only used the Vater wrapped sticks for concerts. However when you're breaking sticks often, it's hard to rewrap new sticks with the existing Vater wrap when they're duct taped to the original sticks.

      Comments about Vater Grip Tape:

      I had a bad problem dropping and throwing my sticks for a long time. So I decided to try this grip tape and I can't believe how good it works I have not dropped my sticks once yet. I have had it on for 2 weeks and have not dropped them at all. So if you have this problem like I did problem solved with this grip tape.
      Easy to put on stays on and works what more do you need.
      Great it works well.
      The product works and the price is great get it today.

        My sons teacher suggested I get him these since his hands get so sweaty and sore durning practice. He loves them, I thought I was buying red, they were pink, but he says they still look tough and he likes the pink. He also likes the fact when he's killing it they work as described. Course my wrapping isn't as pretty as the pic, they still work very well.

          The best grip ...EVER

          By The Bone Man

          from OKC, OK

          Comments about Vater Grip Tape:

          I hold my drumsticks with a very loose grip, and had problem with throwing my sticks if I missed a hit. I purchased this grip, and viola! No more thrown sticks. This grip does tend to rub blisters on my right pointer finger until the shiny outer coatng wears off, but after that, no issues at all. I have wrapped about 10 pairs of sticks with the same wrap, and it is still going strong. It would be nice to be able to purchase more of the "tape" used to hold the wrap down at the top. If you are looking for a wrap that works, look no further. This stuff RULES!

          This stuff is made by Jesus himself! I got some of this stuff for Christmas and it makes a huge difference. If I'm going to be honest I just bought it to look BA but now that I own it, it gives you so much better grip and controll. It is also reuseable and that makes me happy.

          Comments about Vater Grip Tape:

          I've been playing drums for about 1 1/2 years and have struggled with hand pain after playing for about 10 minutes since I started playing. First I had a technique problem as a new drummer. After fixing my technique the problem was still there from contantly trying to adjust the drum stick. I cna now play 100% comfortably without any pain due to these wraps. I am absolutely in love with these things. I never write reviews ever, but for a product this great I had to do it. If you are a drummer and have problems with hand pain or with holding your sticks you should have bought these wraps yesterday!!!!

          I really like this stuff. It's works really well for my Ahead Joey Jordison's (very slick without tape). This stuff really helps. Might be a little tricky to put on (took me about 2 tries to get it perfect)but it is definately worth the trouble. I got the white. Great buy. Will definately buy again!

          I bought this tape because I thought it would be cool to have grip tape on marching sticks, but they don't cover the whole stick so I put them on my Mike Terrana sticks. OMG these are the most BEAST sticks ever now! They improved my speed so much! I feel like the fastest, most in control drummer out there. BUY THIS , u will be A BEAST at drums. BUY THE GRIP TAPE!! do it

                      Comments about Vater Grip Tape:

                      I rarely have ever used Grip Tape but found that some of my sticks were just too slick from the factory for me to hold them. I considered using gloves but just didn't seem natural so I decided to give Vater a try. Once I figured out a technique for wrapping them, I can now do it in about 2 minutes. They felt very good in my hand as well as still having the balance I felt comfortable with. They look great and I now have all my sticks covered. They did their homework as far as designing the wrap in such a way as to make it easy to apply and getting the same result. Another added feature is that if you do not like the grip for any reason, it can be taken off without all the sticky residue that some tapes have. The material was made to last !! No rocket science here ! I would highly recommend this product !!

                      I bought this as a gift for my nephew so I cannot comment on the product itself but I can say that I would buy from this company again based on the ease of doing business, availability of the product and that I received it in the time frame given. I was using a different company and they had it on back order, which I did not know when I placed my order with another item. Went to this company and rec'd what I needed.

                        I really love the feel of the vater grip tape!! I am surrounded by a drum shield so I get hot and my hands start to sweat and the sticks begin to slip but with vater grip don't have to worry about slippage!! The only down side is that it gets dingy from the sweat but it's no big deal!! Would highly recommend to any drummer that has slippage problems.

                        Comments about Vater Grip Tape:

                        Good grip but there is better.......If you are a drummer and can not find the right grip you should just get regular electrical tape,it works great for drumsticks reduces shock and does have grip.....But if you do not want to take my recomendation I would sugest getting vater or ahead grip......also considering that vater does not hold up very good at all.....that's what I think.
