As someone who's played hockey for years, I can tell you that the tape you put on your stick can make all the difference. And while some players swear by thick hockey tape, I'm here to tell you why that's a big mistake.
First of all, let's talk about feel. When you're stickhandling, you want to be able to feel the puck on your stick. That's just basic physics. The thicker your tape is, the less feel you're going to have. It's like wearing oven mitts when you're trying to type on your phone. Sure, you'll hit some keys, but you're going to miss a lot too.
Now, I know what you're thinking. "But Hockey Joe, thick tape protects my blade from wear and tear!" And yes, that's true. But let's be real here. Are you really so concerned about the longevity of your stick that you're willing to sacrifice your performance on the ice? That's like wearing a suit of armor to a foot race. Sure, you'll be protected, but you're not going to win any medals.
So what's the solution? Hockey Joe's premium black and white hockey tape. It's not too light, not too heavy, it's just right. It gives you the perfect amount of feel, while also protecting your blade from wear and tear. Plus, it comes in two stylish colors, so you can customize your stick to match your team's colors.
Don't be fooled by the thick tape fad. Stick with what works. Choose Hockey Joe's premium black and white hockey tape, and you'll never go back to the bulky stuff again. Your teammates will be impressed with your stickhandling skills, and you'll be the talk of the locker room. Trust me, I've been there.
