The goal in creating Comp-o-stik cloth hockey tape was very simple. It had to be the best available product for the money. The challenge of achieving that simple goal was much more difficult. In Comp-o-stik‚ hockey tape we’ve created a product that outperforms any other product we’ve encountered. Instead of cutting corners we put our money where our mouth is to deliver an ice hockey tape that meets your needs. Some of the key characteristics of Comp-o-stik‚ cloth stick tape are; A durable cloth backing made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibres, A colour-matched adhesive system optimized for superior bond on composite and wood sticks, What it means to you the hockey player The durable cloth backing is a strong blend of natural and synthetic fibres. Combined they offer superior abrasion resistance versus traditional cotton tapes. This cloth construction also ensures a tape that can stand up to the punishment of the game. Comp-o-stik is highly moisture-resistant. Water-absorption by the cloth is a contributing factor in snow build-up on hockey tape and adhesive failure on the stick. Some players have resorted to waxing their tape to prevent snow and water problems. Comp-o-stik hockey tape significantly reduces water absorption and snow build-up on the blade without waxing. Your tape lasts longer and it saves you time preparing your stick. If you still prefer wax Comp-o-stik‚ will also work with the same wax you already use. What a difference a dye makes‚ white tape that is white and black that is black. Our white tape offers a cleaner and brighter appearance versus tapes made from unbleached cotton. Our black tape is made from cloth that is dyed black using a special dye process that gives it a true‚ jet-black‚ appearance that doesn’t fade or bleach when in use.
