If I'm counting right that's FIVE layers of tape (plus the twist grip)??? Nuts, I thought everybody just used 1 or occasionally 2 layers.

I use three layers of tape on the grip, but that's mostly because I use an intermediate stick and find the grip too thin.

Call it boredom and too much time, but I decided to give my blade a heel to toe tape job but with white and black tape to give it the illusion of a dany heatley tape job.

Always white tape, and I start with the strip on the bottom of the blade, wrapping up around the toe. I then tape from heel to toe, starting about 1/4 to 1/2 way down the blade, then wrap the toe, and trim off the excess.

Grip, I do 12-15 wraps on the top, and then wind down 5 or so times on the handle, nothing crazy.

For my blade, I like to start with a strip all the way along the edge of the blade (like actually on the edge, so that 1 half of the tape is on one side, and the other half is on the other), then I go from heel to toe and back.

Basically I like to cover the whole blade with tape.

As for grip, I do 2 layers, and then about 10 - 12 "loops" around the end to make a pretty fair sized knob. I like the feel of it when I go to stick check guys, it seems like it'll never ever fall out of my hand, probably just in my head, but I like the feel.

blade: - toe to heel
- tape around the toe, 3/4 down blade
- white always


top: - tacki mac (primary) --- like the flat textured one .. no ridges
- white tape (backup)
- as close to no knob as possible, like the feel and good for pokecheck
- tacki mac is awesome would recommend to anyone, great grip, much less wear on gloves and cheap!

I change my tape jobs up all the time, both blade and knob. Prefer white tape but I use black tape once in a while. When I use black tape on the blade I like to tape it about 2.5 inches up from the bottom of the blade to about .5 inch at the top. When I use white tape I tape it about half way up the blade and over the toe. Much like Ryan Getzlaf. When I use white tape I tape it over the toe just for looks, I don't think it makes much of a difference taping it over the toe then not taping it over the toe for toe drags and what not hence why I don't do it using black tape. I also like to tape it like Benn and Heatley do.

As for the knob I have a bit of a problem with it. I love to change up the knob all the time but every time I tape it, it gets really sticky for about the first 3-4 times using it. Does anyone know a way to prevent this?

A bit of baby powder goes a long way to getting rid of the stickyness.

Have significantly changed my tape job since originally posting in this thread. I now use a tacki-mac on the butt end, with the knob sliced down to about 1/4". On the blade I still go heel to toe, taped over the toe and waxed, but I now do the half-rip method (tear the tape in the middle, so it's only half its normal width, gets you a lot more ridges, I can feel where the puck is on my blade a bit better this way, and get a bit more spin). Looks kind of like Phaneuf's blade:



Except I start a lot closer to the heel, tape over the toe, and don't rip my tape quite as thin as he does (that looks like more like a 1/3 thickness, I use 1/2 thickness).

Tacky Mac on the grip and the blade.

Always had a hate for tape.

Lately I've been doing 1" cloth overlapped so that there's almost no ridges at all, heel to over the toe, then a heat gun to help the tape stick to the blade. I use Renfrew which is pretty gritty, so I get a good amount of spin and grip from that.

Up top just your normal 1" cloth wrapped around ~15 times to make a knob, then ~5" of Powerflex tape.
