IDENTI-TAPE®'s "BEST TAPES for HOOPS"
Most hoopers use a combination of at least 3 kinds of tape, and generally put them down in the following order. First, metallic, holographic deco tapes for sparkle & "bling" (and slick-gloss too). Second, vinyl or electrical tape for sealing down the edges of deco tape, color, and cross-pattern. Lastly, gaffer tape for color, friction, and grippiness (and also to seal down deco edges). Other tapes can used for other interesting effects. There is an absolute infinity of amazing designs, looks, and effects that can be achieved by letting the creativity you were born with flow from your being! Here's your chance! If you have questions about any of our tapes or wish to know what tapes are best for your hoops, please email us!
