I use this gaffer tape to protect the edges of my pickleball paddles. The tape is thick and durable, effectively withstanding the scraping of my paddles on the court surface when making low shots. What sets it apart is the vibrant range of colors it offers, adding a fun touch compared to the usual black or white tape specifically marketed for paddle sports like tennis and pickleball. It possesses a strong adhesive quality without leaving any residue behind when removed from the paddle edge. However, there is a slight challenge involved in using this tape. It is slightly wider than most pickleball paddles, necessitating some trimming. This is where my experience in the printing industry comes in handy, as I have a cutting mat and am skilled with an Xacto knife. Although it may take a few attempts, the appealing aesthetic of the tape will make the effort worthwhile. Additionally, I even coordinate some of the paddles with matching overgrips.
