How much overlap do you guys use on your blade? I overlap by about 1/3 to 1/2, since I like to think this will last me longer. That ridges thing is interesting though - I never thought of that.
I use black tape on the blade, and put a strip along the bottom first as it always wears out sooner than I like. Sometimes, if I'm trying to prolong the life of my tape, when the bottom gets worn/too sticky, I'll simply stick a strip along the bottom after the normal wrap. Can be a pain if it starts fraying, but its only occasional, and it usually lasts me through 1 game.

White knob for the top - how often do yas change this? I'm finding the edges of the tape are being sticky on me, making it difficult to move my glove easily after holding it there for awhile. And its usually just after taping ie. fresh glue I'm having to wear in and smooth down the stickiness.
