Anyone using smooth black thumbhole tape?
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:47:13 PM »
Just started using master 1 inch black smooth thumbhole tape in back of thumb, knuckle side. Trying to get a quicker release. Always used the white textured, and found it to gum up, making me hang up, especially in warm humid weather. Well I really love the feel, and release I get with the black. Problem! Tape doesnít want to stick to my knife putting it in, or even in the thumbhole that well. Bitch to remove as well, peels , breaks apart in pieces. Tape is super thin. Iím thinking itís just cheap brand tape, though I think storm owns master. Anyone using black tape? What brand?

Tried rbt silver, itís the worst of them all. Textured, and tacky as hell. I mean this stuff is like glue. Especially in hot, humid bowling alleys. Makes me hang up.
give the blue a try.

Why bring the race of the tape into this?  Can't it just be tape?
