    I agree with this Kwun
    I absolutely hate the tape, maybe when I go back to Indonesia I will use electrical tape (the black one)

    ^^
    Or do what I do:
    apply the tape only on the grip, not halfway onto the cone. And don't stretch it too much. Otherwise it'll recoil back the next day.

    depending on the electrical tape. some electrical tapes are just as bad and leave even worse residue.

    I don't mind the residue as long as it does not recoil..
    I really like how it can stretch, but usually it will recoil because the glue is not strong enough to hold the tape..

    This is what I mean, so the tape is only on grip... you can still see 1mm of white grip exposed above the tape.

    We currently do not sell gormmets. But we purchased some for daily string work. I could share you some if you wished. As there are a lot of kinds of grommets: thin: short med long, wide: short, med, long; twin that you need to contact with me for the details type you wished.

    i figured, for $3 and 20 meters, it should last around 100 rackets. $0.03 per grip is nothing.

    Kwun let us know how the finishing tape turns out from MBS, I would definitely pay $3 for that roll if it turns out to be good. When did you order it? Usually takes like 2 weeks to ship to CA.

    Do one of you want to buy me a roll of that tape and ship it out to me in the UK? Naturally I'll cover the costs.

    Thanks :)

    If you order it from Kwun who gets it from MBS, it's likely the shipping cost will be more then the actual product which is $3. MBS doesn't charge shipping or tax so you can just pay $2.95 flat. Getting it through Kwun would be much more expensive. I don't think there was anywhere on MBS where it says shipping to London isn't allowed or costs extra.

    Are you mad? It's 2 bucks a roll from your local hardware joint.
