Prodigy snake tape V2 black texture

Smooth and durable

Prodigy Snake Tape is made from a cotton/synthetic blend with a very tight weave, creating a smooth feel and high durability. It’s smoother than the original Snake tape and feels more like our own Firetoys Tape.

It's highly durable, so if your tape will get a lot of use, you may want to consider this version as it will last longer than the original Snake tape.

how to tape a hoop info

Easy to wrap

One 14m roll should be enough to cover any size of aerial hoop with a tube diameter of 25mm. It has no serrated edge and is easy to tear by hand.

Use two rolls of tape if

  • your tube diameter is larger than 25mm
  • your hoop diameter is larger than 100cm
  • you want a two-colour hoop!

Wrapping the hoop is easy and the tape unrolls easily.

  • Start at the bottom of your hoop.
  • Wind your tape up, wrapping around the bar in a spiral, overlapping the tape until you reach the top of the hoop.
  • Start again at the bottom, overlapping the tape by about a hand’s width. Start wrapping in the other direction until you reach the top!

A note about glue

Often, the tape will be a little sticky on the surface after you have taped the hoop. This is normal, it is excess adhesive coming through gaps in the cloth.

This could happen immediately or after the tape has warmed up when you’re training. We always recommend rubbing new tape with chalk; it will help absorb excess adhesive. You may need to reapply the chalk, but with use, it will no longer be a problem, and you won't need any more chalk.

The V2 tape uses a stronger adhesive than the original Snake tape and our Firetoys tape. This adhesive helps the edges stay stuck and contributes to the tape's durability. However, this means that you may need to chalk the tape a few more times before all the adhesive is removed.

If you do not use chalk, the new tape can make your hands and clothes sticky.

This can happen with all tape brands that we have tested, and it’s inconsistent; some rolls are good, while others are sticky. Warm weather and other conditions can affect it, too. If you have a problem, please let us know. We will be happy to help you!

Based on 2 reviews

this tape wasn't as easy to tape my hoops with as original snake tape because it doesn't unroll as easily. we had to chalk the bar 3 or 4 times as it got sticky when it warmed up, but now after 6 months of regular weekly classes it's far less frayed than my other hoops. it's smooth and a little less grippy, but seems to be holding up well. I would say at first, i was dissapointed, but pleased with it now after the first few classes.

not very good

The normal prodigy snake tape is totally fab but the black v2 tape is very sticky, frays at the edge even whilst putting on so rolls down and pulls your skin off, stick with the normal prodigy snake tape and avoid the V2 if you want to keep your skin
