Am looking to re grip a pair of axes and wonder what everyone's preferences are for re gripping? Petzl and DMM do rolls of specific tape, has anyone used anything else successfully?

Self Amalgamating Tape from your local ironmongers/diy shop. It's what petzl rebrand for 10x the price.

I have recently replaced my Nomic grip tape with Self Amalgamating Tape from Scewfix. The tape is cheap and easy to apply but a harder compound than the original Petzl tape and less grippy. I've only used it on a couple of easy routes so far but my initial impressions are that I preferred the Petzl tape for feel.
