I like the clam tape as well. I cut about a 4" piece then cut it down the middle to get more out of a roll. You can really get it on tight and like 'backup' said it doesn't leave a residue because i believe it only sticks to itself.

Electrical tape works fine with no damage. If you are worried just put the firs wrap or two sticky side up then sticky side down. Now nothing wil lstick tothe corck. Being an electrician we were always taught sticky side down but hey I am just thinking outside the box here. LOL!!

I have had my rubber bands (castration bands) on a few of my reels for years and they don't move whatsoever, slip or anything. They have never dug into my cork handles either. I used to use tape but these work much better and are so easy to put on..........Kirk

I did do one rod with the painters tape and electrical tape. It worked fine, but i prefer the slight tackiness of the clam tape. It has a slight grip to it. It's a real positive feel in the hands.

I use hockey tape, water and cold doesn't hurt it and it offers good grip. It seems to outlast the rod and reel, as I've never had to redo one before.

Yup, I do the hockey tape as well. I have been doing it for years now. Very comfy and like PB said, the cold and getting it wet doesn't hurt it one bit.

I am using shrink tube. 1 inch cheapo stuff you find at a discount hardware store. Form fits with no damage and holds tight.

Hockey tape for me, but I like the sound of the clam tape.
