    Not for me. I don't bother with taping my blade. I did for a short time but it ended up just being a waste of tape. I know there's some people that like to use black tape specifically cause the puck might blend in with the tape and it'll be harder to notice for the opposition but eh, that's kinda unlikely that that actually makes much of a difference. I know that the tape also should help with the puck staying on the blade but that's never been a problem for me. It's all preference obviously.

    As a goalie, with black tape its harder to see the puck on the back side of a wrister, right before the shooter lets it go. This only applies if the shooter knows what they are doing.

    As a player, black friction tape all the way. The tape does increase the friction between the blade and the puck. It will stop the stick from being slappy when you receive a pass, and will all around give you better control.

    The stupid part about the stick on products is that it doesn't protect the bottom of the stick, which makes it really only good for roller. On the ice, you get little micro fractures on the bottom of stick that pack with ice and split. Tape definately extends stick life dramatically.
