Once you feel the VukGripz Bat Grip Tape, you will understand the difference! This is how we sell our products! This batting tape feels extremely different than any alternative out there! Made of up millions of little fingers, our pioneering technology separates us from the pack! When an athlete grips down on their bat handle, our little fingers spread apart and lock your hands into place! So, this is a different approach than sticky, tacky leather products! Again, sticky, tacky leather products only provide friction with a top coating. After minimal use, this top coating is worn away leaving the athlete searching for pine tar or spray adhesive. These liquid boosts will breakdown their gripping material more causing it to fail. So, VUK eliminates the need for those 3rd party products!
