    Still, a single color, or a color pattern side tape can look well too. I would wager sum cheese-its that Adam Bobrow would like many colors on his side tape if he could get it... or side tape with pictures of his shorts every few cm... heck, many players might buy that ege tape - an Adam Bobrow themed edge tape with his defining personal touches.


    ...................and then of course some people would love to fit a beautiful edge tape with all rainbow colors 😆

    Does edge tape do anything? Depends. You can decide for yourself. But if you really slam the edge into the table or a wall, nothing will protect your edge. If you push hard, sometimes you bang your blade into the table. I prefer to see the damage.
    -
    I was trying to post a photo but the site is acting funny. So, no photo of the banged up edge of my blade. Battle scars are good. And most of the time, they don't affect the way the blade plays. But when a blade is toast, you use the next blade.
    -
    Still, cutting off the part of the tape that is coming up would work. Using an old fashioned rubber cement from a hardware store or an art supply store would work. So would using New Fangled TT Water Based glue. Chose your method or just remove the edge tape. The battle scars look better when you can see them.
    Here. I will give it another try. This is the edge tape I use:

    Setup 1: Blade by Nate: Vortex Spin Machine, FH Evolution MX-K, BH Evolution FX-P
    Setup 2: OSP Virtuoso Plus, FH Rasanter R 48, BH Rasanter R 48
    Spin is Everything

    I like the look of a beat up blade. With the edge tape, it is hard to see the dings. If you see them, you can do something if the blade actually needs some teching. But most of the time, even when the edge looks like it has been chewed on, it does not affect the way the blade plays.

    That is how i like it, a through professional approach.
    Having said that, are you sure i can not interest you in a few meters of the Rainbow colored version ? 😁

    BTW: someone said Duct Tape and Gaffer's Tape are the same. They are not.
    -
    Here is the first thing that comes up when you search "difference between duct tape and gaffer's tape":
    -
    "Starting out with composition, Gaffer's Tape is made of vinyl coated cloth, and duct tape is made from polyethylene coated cloth. One of the most notably visible differences between the two tapes is that duct tape is highly reflective and Gaffer's tape has a matte finish."
    -
    Does not matter much but....getting a roll of half inch thick gaffer's tape of any color will be edge tape to last for a few thousand blades. They have it in pretty much any color you can think of. You could even put your own branding on it.

    Are you trying to say my Virtuoso + is not beautiful? hahahahaha. It plays amazingly. And I think it looks awesome. For how hard that blade has been slammed, I am amazed that it is not a lot more beat up.

    Hi everyone. I took a break to relax my mind a bit and now I’m back. The edge tape sticks there good. My setup is: Xiom offensive S with evolution EL-S 2.0mm on both sides as someone asked.
