I bought the purple-green tape and have put it through 6 months of daily abuse. The green has some black marks from my hands that I have to scrub off every couple weeks but the purple still looks pretty new - definitely not true for the purple Lizard Skins DSP tape this replaced. This is pretty thick and foamy so it took a long time for me to get it wrapped without any creases or uneven spots, so it lost a star there. Grip, durability, and comfort are all great. Not sure what to say - it looks really cool and performs great. Oh, and the finishing strips that come with it are super stretchy and amazing.
