    Does anyone have a video link or instructions on how to do this without using scissors, or without making it look bad? I did it for the first time and I like the feel, but the tape came off the end pretty easily, and I had to use scissors.

    I just tape over the toe, one additional row, so that 'back and front tape' overlap and stick together...then cut it with scissors.

    Is the toe of your blade round, square, or rounded-square?

    This looks pretty good. There's a surprisingly large number of idiots on YouTube who can't tape over the toe of their stick properly.

    Why do you not want to use scissors? People give you crap for it in the locker room? Just use scissors, don't worry I dont think anyone seriously will think that much less of you.

    You have to use scissors then. Only square-toed blades can be done properly without some trimming.
