For me, it depends on the type of stick. If it is a composite stick, I use more tape. It makes me "think" that the puck will not bounce off of it as much. I tape the heel, leave a blank spot, then tape a 2 to 3 inch stripe in the middle.

On a two piece or wood, I use a 2 to 3 inch stripe in the middle of the blade.

As for wax, it definately saves you from taping your blade every game. You can use any wax as well, a used up house candle will do.

Putting a stripe along the bottom makes it a tiny bit harder to get it upstairs when you are in tight with a goalie in the heat of the action.

p.s. if you can play a full game without nicking up your tape.... dude! Get involved!
