Hello, and thanks for your interest in BladeTape – still the best kept secret in hockey equipment!
I’m the company’s new owner Ted Nesbitt. Like many of our customers, I was practically born with skates on, practiced and played hockey year round – and dreamed of one day hoisting Lord Stanley’s cup over my head. Since hanging my skates up, I’ve remained in love with the game my whole life. I’m a devoted fan, I’ve done some minor hockey coaching on and off – and am a proud Hockey Dad.
My son picked up BladeTape when he was about 11 and wanted to try it out. He loved the BladeTape on his stick, how the ice didn’t build up on the blade, and how he had extra grip on the puck for passes and shots. His saucer pass became a thing of beauty after slapping BladeTape on his blade.
Fast forward 18 months, and I’m working for the Company. Fast forward another 48 months, and voila, I buy BladeTape! I guess you could say “my son liked it so much, I bought the Company!”.
The secret of BladeTape?–Well, it’s pretty simple actually. It’s rubber, and it’s got ridges. The raised rubber ridges were scientifically designed to provide some cushion, along with great feel and tons of grip on the puck whether you’re on Inline floor tiles or out on the Ice. The downward wedge matrix design of the Player BladeTape actually encourages the puck to lay down flat–pretty cool huh?
One BladeTape user, Jed Plester from Pennsylvania had this to say;
“The ridges do a terrific job of keeping the puck flat and consistently coming off the blade in a tight saucer. On shots, I noticed the spin was so tight that the puck continued to spin on the ice in the net after I buried it. The puck releases from the stick quickly with a satisfying snap”.
Ken DiOrio of North Carolina shared with us;
“At first I thought the product was very gimmicky, it wouldn’t hold up to the performance as advertised. I was very wrong. I was surprised how easily I was able to adhere BladeTape to the stick. Upon use, it was very apparent that BladeTape added another level of puck control I hadn’t experienced. I have been on-ice for 30+ instructional sessions shooting on Goalies, then another 25 games since I placed the first BladeTape on my stick. The stuff is great and I have a feeling it might outlast my stick. I strongly recommend this product for a player at any level.”
There you have it. What are you waiting for? Can’t everyone use Better Puck Control?
