Tennis Racquet Grip Tape

Post by davetrombizzle » Mon Oct 07, 2019 4:11 pm

Does anyone have any experience with using tennis racquet grip tape on their slides? Positives, negatives? I was thinking about using some on my bass slide to make it a bit chunkier and softer to hold onto. I've been given the go-ahead by my repair tech.

Thanks all.

I use a bit right on the cork barrel. Doesnt seem to cause any problems. I think too much stuff on the cross braces changes the feel a bit, but I might be crazy.

I like cork bike bar tape. It has tapered width. I wrap the neckpipe and main brace.

I use the fairly new medical tape. It comes in black, among other colors, and has no adhesive. It sticks only to itself.

And no issues rubbing off on the neck of a white collared shirt?

Do you have a link to such a product? I am very interested. What brand do you buy?

I get the natural stuff with no dye - tan. Never had a problem except on horns where I didn't use it.

I buy it at my local pharmacy, but this looks like the same thing, though mine is black.

For some reason I no longer remember I put tennis racket tape on a golf club.

I haven't played in a decade or so but had to dig it out for a special event last month. Practicing with that taped golf club turned my hands black, even though the tape didn't look that bad.
