is very light-weight and conformable. This allows a player to build a very soft grip that conforms to their hand around the stick providing excellent stick control. The non-adhesive coating sticks to itself to maintain the shape of your grip but doesn't stick to your glove so you can release the grip and change hand positions without delay. Some players prefer the feel of the traditional soft grip hockey tape to the cloth hockey stick tape with adhesive backing. When it comes to hockey tape for taping on shin pads, we recommend the tough elastic shin-pad hockey tape.
