Like most things in ice hockey, there is no one ‘correct’ way to tape your stick — it all comes down to preference. That said, we recommend you tape from the heel of your blade to the toe; this keeps the seams facing the heel.
Start with the tape half an inch away from the top of the blade, on the backside. Wind the tape up and over the top of the blade, down the front, and back up the rear, overlapping the tape as you go. If you prefer a softer feel, make your overlaps tighter.
If you want to cover the entire blade, make a few extra passes over the end of your toe, press the excess together, and then trim down to the shape of your blade with scissors. If an exposed toe is more your style, tear the tape on the front of the blade, so it overlaps the top last.
Using tape is an ideal solution when you’re trying to keep your shin guards from wandering out of place during your game. Start by wrapping the tape below your kneecap a few times before spiralling down to the bottom of your shin guard for another few rotations to keep everything secure.
You must remove your old tape before redoing your tape job! Usually, once your old tape is due for replacement, it will usually have some tatty loose ends that you can use to pull the tape off the same way you taped it.
If it’s a bit more stubborn, you can use a Tape Tiger to slice through the old tape quickly and easily without damaging the blade underneath.
