So, they are trying to make a "conceptual" griptape brand? One of the most pretentious things ever. Griptape is fucking griptape man...

What could possibly be different about this brand? No need for another grip, unless itís Deluxe getting into the game.

What even is anyone basing their criticisms of this on? I went to their insta and there aren't even any real posts yet, I went to the link in their bio and it just took me to one of those "this domain name is available" type pages. I agree it seems pointless to launch a new grip brand but with a team like that I'm at least curious.

Also couldn't this easily be a complete prank? like couldn't you feasibly start an instagram for a "brand" just tag a bunch of pros in the bio and let people speculate?

Not a prank, unless they also hacked Ishod's personal website and added the brand to his sponsors.

Because much like bearings, decks, wheels and hardware, if you get the right people to promote your product you can sell a bunch of it even if its exactly the same as your competitors and comes from the same factory.

How many times have you heard someone at the park swear their Antihero board is the best wood but their friends deathwish sucked or something to that effect?
