Strengths:    Easy to wrap

Weaknesses:    Dangerously slippery when wet

Bottom Line:   
Yeah sure, nice and tacky in the store, but once your hands sweat and this stuff gets wet, watch out! Save your money, this tape is NO GOOD!

Strengths:    Grip, cushioning

Weaknesses:    Black color does not go all the way through

Bottom Line:   
I like most everything about the Lizard Skins DSP tape; great grip dry or wet, appropriate cushioning, and the extra length gives added flexibilty as to how much bar you can wrap. But, I have the black color and after about 6 months I started to wear through the outer layer in a couple of spots and the underlayer is white; not a great look and not a problem with the various cork bar tapes with the color all the way through. I touch it up with a black Sharpie, but that disappears after about 5 minutes on the bike. This might not be a problem if you use white tape. So, in summary good stuff, but a bit over priced for its longevity.

Strengths:    This stuff is great. I like the squishy gel feel. Its held up well for me and cleaning is a little tricky, I have white tape. recommended method is alcohol and water.

Weaknesses:    It is kind of pricey. This tape requires that it is kept tight but not stretched during installation.

Bottom Line:   
I am going to change my cables and am going to use the dual color DSP this time around.
