    Ok, how do you like your stick taped?

    Black? White? Blade? Handle?

    I use white tape, run one piece lengthwise along the bottom of the blade, then tape pretty much heel to toe of the blade. Really anal about how even each pass of tape is too... I like the tape on the forehand straight up and down, and on the backhand at a slight angle to get it ready for the next straight forehand pass... :shakehead

    On the handle, I roll about a 12" piece of tape into a long sticky snake and wrap it spiraling down the stick about 5" and then I tape over the whole thing. I make a knob at the very top, and a smaller knob at the bottom of the handle so my glove can't slide down off that way either...

    I tape the shaft Bertuzzi style. Tape running down to almost half of the stick. My blade is taped like Heatley does and I use white tape.
