Best Grip Tape Brands

The Top Ten
1 Grizzly

Grizzly has been my favorite ever since I started. It has holes that reduce the chance of air bubbles, stays on great, doesn't wear down, grippy but doesn't destroy shoes, and also has some gnarly graphics.

I personally have used both mob and grizzly, but grizzly I liked better because they didn't kill your shoes, had good grip, have that cute bear on the griptape cut out... It's just so good and sexy. SO GET IT!

Grizzly is definitely the best. Grizzly now has the most pros supporting it and riding it. They have some awesome designs too. People always love my lessors print grip tape.

Grizzly has amazing grip that lasts for a pretty long time and they come with cool graphics or cutouts. SO if u ant awesome grip tape that doesn't wreck shoes BUY GRIZZLY!


Mob grip is so grippy. It does tear up your shoes, don't listen to anyone that says they don't. It does year your shoes up, but if you're gonna skate you have to be willing to sacrifice your shoes. Don't get me wrong, the grip doesn't tear your shoes up until about a month of continuous skating, but like any other good grip, it will. But all the pros use it, and it's no question why. It's the best grip around and is perforated so no air bubbles! Mob is the best grip out, if you don't believe me, give it a try. See for yourself. Once you go mob you'll never go back.

I like mob it is nice grip tape as grippy as grizzly usually and has nice graphics. People only like grizzly better because it doesn't mess up your shoes like mob but that's because mob is rough and that is also what is nice. And skating shoes are eventually gonna get wrecked so I like Mob a lot. I have the Kosmos Galaxy
one w/ the stars and the cosmos etc from Krux and Mob.

I used to skate grizzly then tried mob I've had it on 2 decks. The first deck the mob wasn't that grippy. It was just a little more grippier than grizzly. And I got it for my next board and it seemed that it was a lot grippier than my first sheet. Is there a such thing as company's giving out bad grip?

MOB has very coarse griptape which is very helpful to beginners and even pro's, I put it on my deck after the stock griptape smoothed out after a month, and its been keeping up the good work for many months, also, it does in fact put a hole or two in your shoes, but that's the sacrifice I'm willing to take (and you should too) for what I think is the best griptape out there.

3 Shake Junt

I've rode on black magic, Jessup, mob, and skate junt grip. In my opinion I think black magic was ripping my shoes a lot faster, Jessup was good because it saved my shoes but it's less grippy, I think mob and shake Junt are the median between a shoe ripper and not having any grip, which is perfection.

Tried Mob, Tried Grizzly, Mob kills your shoes, my shoes ripped in 3 days using it. Grizzly wares down, it's good after the first month buth then you feet start to slip off. Shake Junt is perfect it never wears down and doesn't feel like sand paper on your feet.

It's the best because it's the gripiest griptape that doesn't kill your shoes. its way gripier than grizzly and jessup and it doesn't kill your shoes like mob. perfect combination. I only us shake junt. sick graphics to.


Skater owned and for true skaters. Best grip ever, and I've tried everything else. Lots of respect keep up the good work Junt!

4 Jessup

WOW is what I said when I tried this grip tape it is the best grip because it really sticks to your shoes without tearing them in one day I have it on all 3 decks that I have and I've never thought about changing grip I am a jessup skater forever when you buy a deck and they ask "what Grip do you ride, " don't hesitate to say jessup.

If YOU love skateboarding, support companies that invest and participate IN skateboarding!

Jessup has never invested or promoted skateboarding. They are an industrial manufacturing company with no DNA in skateboarding. They take their profits and put them in their own pocket!

Jessup is just amazing, it is not too gritty like Mob and Grizzly, and it still retains the same amount of grip. They really know what they are doing with their formula, and I hope they do not change it ever.

Jessup griptape is the best! Perfect amount of grip & doesn't shred your shoes like Mob and Grizzly do. They know what they're doing and have a pro team of skaters who love their grip!

5 Diamond

Same as grizzly just got the diamond logo and some really cool graphics on the new grip that they sell. I extremely recommend this to people who rod grizzly I'm not sure if it is perforated though

Well since grizzly and diamond come from the same company it would be 2nd by the way Jesup sucks

Same company as Grizzly, same grip, amazing and super grippy

It is a awesome grip tape nice graphics and very grippy

6 Mouse Griptape

Mouse is great because it is mob grip with a hand painted graphic on it and it looks gnarly

My first griptape I used. Loved it ever since then. It's nice and grippy too

It lasts long looks good and doesn't kill your shoes

The griptape is from mob grip the diference is only the graphics

7 Bro Style

Bro style is amazing! Doesn't rip up your shoes like a mob and is still pretty grippy. The adhesive is sticky as and support LEO ROMERO!

Love it because it has the word bro great brand too

Really nice grip. had it for a while and its really great

Great griptape in my opinion better than grizzly grip

8 Paradox

I was skating all different brands not really noticing a difference for about 12 years. I finally tried out Paradox for the first time 3 years ago, haven't ridden any other brand since. #wegrippymane!

Best grip out! The whole company and the people that ride for them are an awesome family and down to earth people. The griptape is grippy, but not overly grippy where it rips and sticks.

My homies and I ride paradox grip tape and we can't change to other grip because paradox is where it's at. Grippy and doesn't wear down your shoes

Best grip in my opinion. Grip last as long as your board last, and is moderately kind to your shoes and ran by one of the radest dudes and one badass team. Much love!

9 Filmbot

Filmbot grip is really underrated. It's nice and grippy, doesn't tear up your shoes, and lasts a long time.

I need to get more because can't find film bot grip no where some one help

It really grippy and rad cutout and its really sexy

Really good go get some

10 Plan B

This grip is absolutley outstanding perfect amount of grip. And this grip is very hard to ruin. and does not get completley destroyed when it gets wet. does not wear off I have had this grip tape for almost 4 years and I use them in all my comppetitions

This is pretty much the same thing as grizzly griptape. I have a plan b board and use Plan B Griptape or Grizzly Griptape. But it lasts a little longer than grizzly

Best there ever is does not rip up my shoes still works really good

Boss thing. It is the best grip tape ever. It should be #1!

The Contenders
11 FKD

Fkd is the best I've been using it for a while now. And does not kill your shoes.

12 Lucky

I've had lucky and I'm not going to say it's the best, but it gets the job done and lasts pretty long.

Lucky is a scooter brand lol this is mostly skateboards.

Very good brand and it's lucky

13 Black Diamond

Will it last long or will it get ruined easily? I just got it with a zero deck.

Will black diamond last long?

I have been skating black diamond since it came out since the I haven't change griptape and wont KILL shoes black diamond RULES

14 Bullet

I like bullet griptape because it does not kill your shoes and comes in clear or black. And the griptape does not rip

Bullet has great grip and last long

15 Black Magic

Shorty's black magic. Best around. Better then anything. I can't believe it's not top 10. All the Mongo pusher just don't know. Mob is garbage, Jessup, and Shake junt. The only competitor really is Grizzly.

Black Magic is the best. The name says it all "black"! Does not look grey like the other it looks black the way it should. Anyone who says this thing has no grip has no brain. I've been using it for 20 years.

I have black magic on my board and it treats me well. It rarely tears and it doesn't rip up your shoes. It's great for flip tricks because it's so sticky. I highly recommend black magic.

I had it and found it decent and suffice for someone who wants a firm grip, plans on not doing any tricks and just likes to take it slow.

16 Shorty's

Shorty are one of the best brands out there for skate grip

One of the best grip tapes they are awesome

Love this brand should be in the top 5

I love this brand it's awesome

17 Amgrip

I skate this grip and its very good. I doesn't murder your shoes but it does a little bit of damage.

Currently the best grip I've skated so far, doesn't shred your shoes like other companies grip

This is very good grip tape doesn't shred your shoes to fast and it could be better than jessup

I would say it doesn't have as much grip as jessup but on the bright side your shoes stay nice.

18 Element

Element is the best grip tape you want if you like to do tricks. Element grip tape is awesome it's similar to Jessup because its very sticky

I got my new board equipped with element.. And its nice but I would prefer grizzly

This grip tape isn't bad but it does the job

Has a lot of grip

19 Flex Tape

If you're scared to get separated from your board when you fall, get this. It holds on tight. Even in when wet.

The best grip tape and its even waterproof also Phil swift is our god and we need to bow down to him.

Amazing, I could feel phil swift's power course my veins as I rode this.

I just sawed my board in half!

20 GripKing Griptape

Very nice Griptape, I ride on the team. No air bubbles and the perfect grip that doesn't rip your shoes. Definitely recommend this

Obliviously gripking grip tape is the best, it is grippy but doesn't rip up your shoes and its made to not get air bubbles.

Looks awesome and its just perfect

Best grip in my opinion :D

21 Zero

The zero grip tapes are good like there board brand

This grip is grippy and has sick graphic love this

I Like Zero Becuase It Makes Your Feet Stick So you Don't Fall And It Haa Cool Desing

Nice LOGO, nice quality ´╝îmy first skateboard

22 Tree Griptape

Waterproof backing, perforated, and super thick so it doesn't rip. It's the way to go

23 Mouse

Awesome graphics dope grip

24 Mini Logo

Mini logo it's the best I've been skated mini logo for a while and does not kill your shoes

Very good grip, its grippy but not too grippy so your shoes will last

25 Superior

I bought this grip tape the other day, and have been 100% satisfied with the quality. It is so grippy and durable, and unlike as other grip tape companies, it does not affect your shoes at all,

I had this griptape for like 3 months and it's still pretty grippy and don't ruin your shoes very quickly! One of the nicest griptape I have ever skated.
