|BladeTape PLAYER Hockey Blade Grip Pads||
Lowest Price Guarantee
The BladeTape Player Hockey Blade Grip Pads offer a variety of advantages over traditional cloth hockey tape. These BladeTape Grip Pads offer players better grip on the puck with the specifically engineered rubber ridge pattern and they prevent snow or ice buildup on the blade. When traditional cloth hockey tape begins to retain water and ice, it weighs about twice as much as BladeTape (Wet Cloth Tape = 40-45 grams // Wet BladeTape = 18 grams).
In a single package, players receive forehand and backhand BladeTape Pads along with three strips of TipTape (Black and White colors only) that last a minimum of 15 games but many people claim it lasts much longer. The design strategically leaves the bottom edge of the blade bare allowing the blade to glide much easier on the ice or a roller hockey surface, which improves stickhandling speeds. The rubber construction also gives the blade a better puck feel for catching passes and dangling! Application is a breeze, simply peel off the backing paper by using the pull tab and apply it to a clean, dry blade about 1/8" from the bottom. Give it a good pat down and you're ready to hit the rink! The additional TipTape Strips use the same process but can be used on the tip of the blade for better durability and grip on toe-drags or they can be used on the upper handle for hand-grip.

Comments: I've been using Bladetape on a few of my sticks this season, and love it. Weight difference isn't terribly noticeable at first, but late in the game it helps. As for catching passes, it does a good job of gripping the puck as you catch it in. All around love it. 1 has lasted me 22 games. Another got shredded at 17. Other is on my 3rd backup stick so not used yet, but hasn't lost its grip in 3 months. So durability is very good.
