Pepper rules.

But wait, is Galaxy somehow different from "normal" Pepper? Or are they all "Galaxy"?

Sorry if this is a dumb question. I've just thought that all Pepper is just Pepper and it's fucking great.

Galaxy had some glitter flecks in it. It’s nice and subtle, pops nicely at night under lights.

I've been using Jessup Ultra since it came out and have no reason to use anything else at this point. It's consistently the best grip I've ever used.

Anyone on here skate Alveer? Interested in how it feels compared to Pepper, Jessup, MOB.

Would like to support Sewa.

I want to but it isn't readily available and he only sells it by the sheet on his site; I'd bite if I could buy a box to save on shipping since you're paying almost the cost of one sheet for basic shipping. Not many shops carry it (none here) so it makes it difficult to obtain.

I would usually pick Mob if I got the choice but recently the skateshop has shipped the boards with Jessup and I won't go buy just a sheet of grip. But I've been feeling like Jessup wears more consistently, I've definitely had some boards where the grip has worn down to an annoying level but maybe they have been some random shop grip because I wouldn't expect Mob to wear down quickly either.

So which grip loses grip the fastest in your opinion?

Golden sparkles in the Spring sun. Makes me feel real good about the top side of my board.

Always used Jessup just because it was so damn cheap compared to the others. Might have to give Pepper a try on my next setup though. Never really liked Grizzly or Primitive. MOB has been decent. But I’m intrigued at the prospect of a Jessup-like grip that doesn’t lose it’s freshness

I was thinking the same, the formula they use does not need extra grip. This new stuff has got to just destroy shoes.

Unrelated, tried regular black Mob single sheet since he was out of pepper, which I can't remember the last time I used Mob, but it's pretty damn good so far. It cooperated and cut smoothly and the extra grip is definitely there, much like pepper. Idk, I thought it used to suck but NHS must've fixed it.

I'm on a sheet of what seems like new mob (local doesn't carry pepper); was flexi, easy to cut/isn't peeling. Grippy, no complaints.

Pepper is basically jessup that never stops being grippy.

Well put, it starts out feeling like worn in Mob and stays that level of grippiness throughout. Works well for me since Mob is painfully grippy though 70% of the decks life.

If Pepper is available it's my new go to, 2nd choice Black Magic followed by Jessup.

Does Jessup Ultra have a different backing paper than normal Jessup? It still doesn’t say ”Ultra” on it, right?

I came across this image when searching.

The Jessup I have had has always been the brown backing, the logo with wings, which is the original.

Never seen the Ultra, although I do have a sheet of the Jessup NBD with white backing with info on it, but the Ultra in all seaches comes up with white backing with the oval logo on it.





I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

^ Revelation. I've always had Jessup with the white/oval backing paper and thought that Jessup Ultra was something different as it doesn't actually say "Ultra" on it. So this is what's up with it. So I've actually been using Ultra all the time. Good griptape, btw.

Yeah this is interesting, I might have been unknowingly using Jessup Ultra too... that explains why it didn't feel too different from Mob. Feel like I've been touched by an angel or something.

I haven't tried anything but galaxy. I assume the regs is basically the same.

I like how the grip gets older but the gold sparkles stick around. I find myself staring at it at night when pushing.

I like mob in the summer but I noticed it can handle much salt. Idk what is different about galaxy grip but both boards still have tons of grip. Both was totally white with street salt.

I'd say it passed jessup for my number one favorite. I wanna try Sewa's grip. He's like one of my favorites. Seems so cool and chill in interview. Everyone who's met him talks about him all the time on their channels so obviously he's a friendly G+.

He's fuckin beautiful too. His mom must be so proud.

I'm currently using this grip, and it's very coarse and grippy, which can make it a bit rough on the fingers when applying or touching. It's also a bit tougher to cut when applying, but the perforation makes it still easy to work with overall. I'm enjoying it a lot because standard grip tends to get slick for me on dusty terrain after about a week. This XG grip seems to resist dust better, which is a big plus for me.

The deck on my crust setup is almost a year old and went through a puddle. It has Pepper grip and the grip is still excellent
