These days I use grip tape (this stuff). I love this stuff, only issue I've had is that every few tape jobs, this stuff wanders down the shaft. To fix that, when using the grip tape I leave a half-inch gap at the top of the stick. Then I wrap regular hockey tape around and around the top to form a knob and hold the grip tape in place.
Man I love that stuff I use it on everything now. Just put a nice thin layer of normal tape and put that stuff over it and it improves the grip by 100%. It's funny tho nobody on my team uses the stuff and I don't see very many people use it.
