Easy to tear both across and lengthways Adhesive not as strong as on previous tape
I use the Decathlon tape for wrapping finger joints for Brazilian jiu jitsu. They tend to get inflamed and painful. When this happens the tape provides support until they feel better. The previous zinc oxide tape adhesive was EXTREMELY strong. I sometimes struggled to get it started on the roll. However, once on my hands it would last for 3-5 days with 2 training sessions per day and also showering twice per day after training. With this newer version, I can just about get through 1 day and usually have to change the tape after each session. The end tends to start to peel off also with an hour or so. It's not really a bad tape - it's just that the previous tape was sooooo much better! This tape is easy to rip with your hands and has 'bands' or 'markers' running along its length if you wish to tear it into strips.
