I have talked about it on here before, and thought I would put a pic up of the actual product in case anyone is interested. This is a self amalgamating tape that is very stretchy, with a tacky feel. It is used for waterproofing exposed joints on electrical cable. This stuff out lasts the sticks, unlike dips,racket tape, and stick tape that wear through quite quickly I find. Plus it never looses its tacky feel. I have very dry hands and this helps me to use a loose grip, and prevents my hands from over gripping and becoming numb. It does not leave any residue on my hands.
