spend 200 bucks on the lightest stick you can find then wrap an extra 5 oz of tape around it just doesn't make any sense.
The way I see it, weight isn't everything. If adding the tape improves performance in some way, those benefits can outweigh lightness. And the weight of the knob of tape is totally insignificant compared to the same weight of tape on the blade. It's simple physics. And to end it off, a $200 stick with tape is still lighter than a wooden stick with tape.
