Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This grip seems plenty tough, feels good in the hand, looks great as far as the design and look of the material itself, and is, by far, the hardest tape to wrap smoothly that I've ever used. Ridiculously so. It’s an almost unusable product, so any claims that it merely “takes additional care to wrap” should be taken with a very large grain of salt. It is also the noisiest tape I’ve ever used - since I ride over rough terrain frequently the slight jiggling of cables against the tape as potholes, curbs, rocks etc are traversed produces an audible ‘wap’ sound, which is quite annoying.
I'll leave it on for a while due to its good qualities, but I won't get it again. I like a nice wrap. I can get a much better wrap on every other tape I've used, and there are lots of good ones out there. The ZIPP CX tape that wore out after 2.5 years of constant, hard use was a better tape in every way, and that’s what’s going back on the bike.
