Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm running this tape on two bikes, and it's great. Once I had the spacing figured out, I had no problem with the length of the spools. I did have some initial challenges getting the tape to lay flat without stretching it, but YouTube solved that pretty handily. The only challenge I've had so far came during a couple of bottle-grabs in a race, where my gloves wanted to stick just a little more aggressively to this tape than to the bike's previous tape. In hindsight I probably should have done a couple more training rides on it to get used to the feel, but otherwise it's great! There has been no slippage at all, unlike my experience with the bulkier 2.5mm equivalent, which came undone under the shifters after pulling Bar Mitts on and off a few times.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Attracted by the cost and relatively similar proportions, I bought this bar after a bad wreck destroyed my cross bike's aluminum bar...along with a couple of ribs. Two weeks later I raced it in a 50-mile gravel grinder and my shoulders weren't shaken to bits. I was so impressed that I ordered a second one for my road race bike, and I'm loving it! I was a little nervous to push at full crank on something so light, but it held up to a couple of my hardest possible Zwift sprints (better to fall in the house at 0 mph than out on the road at 25+), and still feels lively and connected out on the road.
