I do the same thing, but I use a roll of black friction tape. I started doing that when I started using cloth tape on my sticks. Cloth tape last a lot longer. Even if the bottom is worn thru it still stick tot he blade, unlike friction tape.

I don't tape the entire blade. I leave some room at the toe and the heel untaped. Since I use composite sticks I'm not worried about the laminate on my blade wearing out like when I used wood sticks or blades. I went to white tape so I can see where the puck is on my blade easier.
