Topic - Axe Grip Tape

michael83 - on 11 Feb 2013
Just a note on axe grip tape for others after a little experimenting.

I have Petzl Nomics and replacing the axe tape with genuine Petzl tape is expensive. I've experimented with a few self-amalgamating rubber tapes with the following conclusions on grip/friction:

- Screwfix self-amalgamating tape - Crap
- Maplin self-amalgamating tape - OK
- 3M Scotch 23 self-amalgamating tape - Excellent

So really just a note, if needing Axe tape, but the 3M Scotch 23, 9 for 9m certainly beats petzl tape at 6/m.

Hope this helps others!

Cheers
