What type of puck feel do you prefer, damp or more lively?

I prefer wood blades, so I guess I'm in the damp column. I experimented with composites for a few months, but I can't get used to them. Maybe if I played multiple times a week I would become accustomed, but it isn't happening.
I went to a composite two years ago, and I never felt quite comfortable with it. I could do everything about the same as with my wood stick, but taking a pass and putting spin on the puck was a problem.
I got used to it after a few games, but everytime I picked up a wooden stick to mess around, I realized how much better I was with wood... for instance, I could snap a saucer pass 10/10 times without even trying with wood... with my composite it was like 5/10...
I recently got that Bladetape stuff and it is like night and day. It literally makes my composite feel like wood when I am handling the puck... now I get the best of both worlds...the lightness of a composite, with the feel of a wood stick.
Try it out and see if it works for you... it is about $12 where I live.
