Good tape, but with some problems.

Good

Easy on the hands. Tape is soft and grippy without being super-thick and squishy.

Screw-in bar plugs are included.

Butterfly pieces for covering the back of the levers are not just additional pieces of tape, theyre specially shaped and fully covered with adhesive so they stay put.

Not good

Length. Per Silcas photos, each turn should be made by placing the edge of the tape against the seam down the middle. I did this and ran out of tape on a 42cm bar.

Adhesive is strong...maybe too strong. Pulling the tape off the bar to rewrap it resulted in some of the adhesive staying put and ripping off the bottom layer of the tape.

Not easy to wrap. Must be pulled very tight at all times, still difficult to avoid wrinkles at the hoods.

Overall given that it feels similar to Fizik Vento Tacky (which doesnt have some of the problems), I dont think Id buy it again.
