Alright you tape the bottom of your stick,
the blade of your stick, just wrap it around kind of like that. And all the way up, overlap
about half way every time, and just work your way to the tip of the blade. Nice and even,
this is another preference thing, some guys like to tape the whole blade all the way,
even the tip. It helps protect the stick; it’s good for puck control. I usually stop
about right here, just overlap at the top of the blade, and cut it off. And then we
have that, some guys will bring it up here even, a little bit more, tape it up a little
bit more, or here, but that?s a personal preference.

    u start by laying a bottom layer so u don ruin the stick, then u start at the toe, so the puck rolls from the heel to the toe. Gives a better shot and a roll to the puck. Fattie.

    Because he uses a wooden stick, he "doesn't know shit" about hockey? Not everyone wants to buy a 200 composite stick and have it break in 4 games. Your probably like 12 and think that the better stick you have, the better player you are. It's all personal preference.

    At certain Core points, yes. But they are WAY easier to break on a shot. Wood sticks have equal strength throughout the entire sticks. I, personally don't like wood sticks. I use a Composite shaft with a replacement blade.

    actually the best way is to tape the tip (toe) end of the stick first, then stop and go heel to toe.

    Heel to toe is better because from toe to heel, because the tape you wraped on the bottom of the blade chips off.

    Does it actually help taping the stick toe to heel? I'm also a right handed shot but I've always taped it heel to toe. I wasn't sure if it actually made a difference or if it was just personal preference.

    no u have to start from the tip cuz the bumps that the tape make can slow down ur shot if u start on the side that he does

    Put a strip of tape on the bottom of the blade then just wrap the tape around the blade. you'll be all set.

    not too bad of a tape job. hes overlapping too much, weighing down the stick because of the extra tape

    are you joking? if you are that good that you are worried about the weight of the extra tape from over-lapping you shouldn't be on youtube.

    im not worrying about it. im just saying that normally you wouldn want to put too much tape on the stick blade. its all about what tape job youre comfortable with and personally i try to avoid too much overlapping.

    @chunny101 Couple other things to add what H0w2H3LP3Rs mentioned – the biggest difference is in the blade. Street/road hockey blades have plastic tips, much more durable for asphalt and concrete. Even if you taped up an ice hockey stick well, the surface would tear it up. You could use a cheap used ice hockey stick if you wanted to, or get a stick with a replaceable blade and switch it out when it's worn out. Street hockey sticks are a lot cheaper to buy though.

    @yooareawesome Yeah but anyone who has some kind of skating ability could easily side step this guy. Im not trying to bash this kid. He seems like a nice guy with who good intent. But compare it to if you went to school and knew the material better than the guy who is supposed to be the professor, I'm sure you wouldnt be very happy. And seeing as it's called EXPERT VILLAGE, theyre not exactly living up to their end of the deal.

    you really should start at the end of the blade so when the puck rolls of your blade it doesn't catch the edges of the tape

    Use a puck and slide it opposite the direction you taped for a smoother surface. Also white tape is so much more awesome because you get the puck marks 🙂
