Comp-o-stikô cloth stick tape (black and white)

Black Hockey Stick Tape

The goal in creating Comp-o-stikô cloth hockey tape was very simple.  It had to be the best available product for the money. The challenge of achieving that simple goal was much more difficult. In Comp-o-stikô hockey tape we've created a product that outperforms any other product we've encountered. Instead of cutting corners we put our money where our mouth is to deliver a hockey tape that meets your needs. Some of the key characteristics of Comp-o-stikô cloth stick tape are;

  • A durable cloth backing made from a blend of natural and synthetic fibres

  • A color-matched adhesive system optimized for superior bond on composite and wood sticks

What it means to you the hockey player

The durable cloth backing is a strong blend of natural and synthetic fibres. Combined they offer superior abrasion resistance versus traditional cotton tapes. This cloth construction also ensures a tape that can stand up to the punishment of the game.

Comp-o-stikô is highly moisture-resistant. Water-absorption by the cloth is a contributing factor in snow build-up on hockey tape and adhesive failure on the stick. Some players have resorted to waxing their tape to prevent snow and water problems. Comp-o-stikô hockey tape significantly reduces water absorption and snow build-up on the blade without waxing. Your tape lasts longer and it saves you time preparing your stick. If you still prefer wax Comp-o-stikô will also work with the same wax you already use.

What a difference a dye makes - white tape that is white and black that is black. Our white tape offers a cleaner and brighter appearance versus tapes made from unbleached cotton. Our black tape is made from cloth that is dyed black using a special dye process that gives it a true "jet-black" appearance that doesn't fade or bleach when in use. Quality products always come first at North American Tapes.

Comp-o-stikô friction tape

Friction tape, the original hockey tape. In the early years of the sport this product was actually used as electrical tape to provide insulation on joints in electrical wire. With so many technically superior products on the market now friction tape is a bit of a dinosaur. Yet some pro's and serious hockey players still prefer this super-thick, soft but heavy tape. For those players the super soft feel of the puck on the blade is their key to controlling lighting-fast passes or achieving that perfect shot. However today with composite hockey sticks players are more conscious about weight and balance than ever and demand for this product continues to fade. Still, we'd be embarrassed to call ourselves a hockey tape company without it so here it is, Comp-o-stikô friction tape;

  • A durable cloth backing encased in;

  • A heavy black cohesive system optimized for self-bonding when wrapped on a stick

What it means to you the hockey player

Friction tape was the original hockey tape. In the early years of the sport sticks were all wood, not very strong, expensive and players didn't tape the stick as a rule. When a players stick developed a crack they couldn't buy a new one so they looked for a way to fix it. Since friction tape was commonly used by electricians it was readily available, strong and a good band-aid. It wasn't long before players recognized that taping their blade with friction tape made it easier to control the puck. Hockey tape was born.

Today some players still reach for friction tape. The thick and soft tape provides a cushion-like surface on the stick blade making for softer passes and good control. Some players customize the friction tape with baby-powder to reduce the stickiness to suit their own preference. This also aids in the reduction of snow build-up.
