Taping the Shaft of Your Hockey Stick

Before "stick'um" and "grip" textured hockey shafts were available, players would often wrap the shaft of their hockey stick with cloth tape because it offers additional grip. Some players still tape their shaft, and in some cases players use tape on their shaft in addition to the grip coating that is applied to the shaft by the manufacturer. Choosing to use a stick with or without grip is a matter of preference.
