Storm Max Pro vs. Genesis Excel
« on: March 05, 2020, 02:32:01 PM »
Has anyone tried out the new Storm Max Pro thumb tape?

I've been using the Genesis #3 but I'm out now and I want something that is thicker and promotes a slower release. I'm thinking of trying Genesis #4 or actually maybe #5. The new Storm Max Pro thumb slow release intrigues me now though too after watching Storm's video on Youtube and wandered how it compared.

When I got a sample pack, I didn't like the feel of the #5 with it being much coarser. I normally use #1(red) or #2(blue). I adjust thickness with tape in the thumbhole

Genesis is the only tape I've used since trying the sample pack. I've had 0 issues with it

I use Genesis #4 usually. If I'm hanging a little, I go to 3, but there's not a tremendous amount of difference. 4 to 5 though, wow, big difference. #5 is much more coarse, I couldn't use it..... I do use #1 occasionally if I need to get out much faster.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm thinking maybe #4 and possibly double up on it if I need instead of trying #5.

That's what I do now. #5 is just.... different, shall we say.

I use #5, but haven't tried any of the others for comparison.
#5 works for me, I like it to be thicker to get as tight a fit as possible, knowing it'll still come out without an issue.
