Hi I’m Reyno Benjamin with expertvillage.com.
Let’s talk about taping the stick a little bit. That hockey tape comes in variety of
colors. What ever you want you can get. Basically you tape the blade of your stick. You tape
it as much as high as you want. I generally go almost to about four inches into the shaft.
Basically start taping and go. Try to go all the way to the top. You just rip it off. So
you’re all the way through there. Now for me it is very important for me to make sure
I tape the end of the stick. Very ,very tightly. Basically what I do is I need to get a good
grip. So I tape here. I get the tape first and I twist it. In order for me to get a good
grip I wrap two times around here and then I start to go down. With the twist tape about
an inch or two in between all the way down to where I want it to end. Where you want
to end is up to you. So now this would give me grooves. Then I go back with tape and tape
over it. All the way down. Basically, that is how you get your groove, and you have a
better grip on your stick. Better to hold on. Some guys would try to knock the stick
out of your hand or what have you. Basically, you have a much better grip. I go all the
way down. It is a very strong grip.
