Best Grip Tape Brands

The Top Ten
1 Grizzly

I skated Grizzly griptape before and it's one of the best griptape I have ever skated! It has those holes which will make you not get air bubbles, the griptape will never wear out and it has nice graphics overall! I recommend it!

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!


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.

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.

4 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!

I've always though grizzly was good until I realized how gay the graphics are and how non grippy it is! Mob is too grippy for me and grizzly is just pathetic! Jessup is perfect! Highly recommend this even if you skate another company just try it and you won't regret it.

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

6 Mouse Griptape

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

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

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!

Best griptape in the business!

8 Paradox

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.

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!

The 'dox for ever! All others are "just" griptape with random name on them. Paradox makes a difference in your skating. I first tried it out 6 years ago and I never looked back!

9 Filmbot

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

Everyone needs to skate filmbot grip it's the best and it has a really awesome design cutout I've skated grizzly, I've skated jessup and Id have to say number one filmbot number two jessup number three grizzly but grizzly does have a rad cutout

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

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

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

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

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.

13 Black Diamond

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

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

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.

16 Shorty's
17 Amgrip

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

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

Grippy like grizzly but it is a lot more thin.

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

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.

20 GripKing Griptape

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.

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

21 Zero
22 Tree Griptape

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

23 Mouse
24 Mini Logo

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

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

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.
