while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

I bought a sheet of Pepper on a whim about a year ago and skated anything else since. Not as grippy as Mob but doesnít wear out quickly like Jessup; perfect Goldilocks.

any griptape discussion should include this:

I use it all the time now to clean griptape.

I rock jessup just because i have forever and dont like to mess with my setup so I've no opinion on which one is best.

But these cleaners are cheap and last forever.  They work, can refresh griptape.

Same - I actually switched to Jessup for this reason.  I had 4 boards in a row do this with Mob.  The grip on the nose and side rail was peeling, and it had bubbles that wouldn't go away no matter what. 
I'd never regripped a board until this year - and I've been skating for 20+ years!

I actually realized that I like Jessup better anyway - it's way easier to work with, if I do get a bubble, they come right out and it's plenty grippy.  I used to sand down my Mob a bit anyway.  Glad to know I'm not crazy - seeing others having the same issues. 

PS - all the Mob were from different rolls, different shops... so they weren't just a bad batch.


Anyone else had issues with Mob lately with regards to bubbles/peeling? One grip job of mine recently just wouldn't sit still, the grip kept coming unstuck at a few spots regardless all effort to fix it. Plus the tape seems way stiff somehow. Haven't experienced this with Jessup or others lately.

Does anyone know a brand of grip that tears easily? Nothing seems to tear (by hand) without wrecking the tape - It always ends up with the adhesive backing separating off the grit.

I had a sheet of the Reynolds Shake Junt which tore extremely easy, but the glue also sucked.

Shake Junt Black Onyx feels identical to Pepper to me. The backing paper is the same color, perforations same distance, same sheen to the backing paper. Those and my local's shop grips all feel the same to me. The shop gets grip from Generator, so I assume that all of them come from there.

I was rec'd SJ Black Onyx for tearability and it didn't tear well at all, it separated from the adhesive as they all do. I was bummed...it has perforations? Didn't even notice.

All of the Mob Iíve had recently has been crumbly and not as adhesive as it was in the past. Crumbly can be ok if you want to do some wild grip jobs but having bits falls off sucks.

Iíve been happy with Pepper. Itís easy to work with and smooth to cut.

You probably donít want to hear this but Mob does(well maybe did havenít bought any in a while).
Just grabbed and ripped for this one:

I used to rip all my grip for about 2 years and Mob worked great for that. Jessup did not.
 Canít say about newer stuff since Iíve been using scraps that are a year or 2 old now.

Yah so the Onyx isn't the same as the Reynolds his just had a small Shake Junt logo on it and I think it might have been old. It wouldn't even stay adhered to the board.

Yep. I did two torn strips angled across my Polarizer top and Iím almost positive it was MOB. It tore effortlessly, was easy to control, and the edges look pleasantly natural and random.

pepper grip is made by jessup it's not much different just costs way more, most uk shops don't even buy it because it would cost like £15 for blank grip lol

That sucks that itís so pricey there. Iíve never paid £15/$18.53 for it though and itís still nice to work with and better than the last few sheets of Mob Iíve had.

I guess Iím a JessuPepper guy nowÖ

Pepper and black magic are very similar in my experience. Small grit but quite grippy, both last a while to. Mob gets bald so quick these days, it's the quality devolved over the years for sure.
 Gonna fuck with some blank grizzly next, can't not.

No hate on Grizzly from me, the plain black stuff works fine if I want something between Jessup and Mob. Just no cut out graphics.

Anybody else notice that every time thereís someone at the park with the rubber grip tape, they always want you to try it like theyíre a sales person for the company? Iíve had this happen like 3 times in the last few months

Recent order of MOB in our shop is a bit thinner. Like Jessup thickness but MOB grit. I just set up a new board yesterday and after it stops raining and I get a few sessions in I will post an update here. I have often wondered if the thickness of the grip was affecting the adhesive holding as it was stiffer and having trouble staying flexible against the contours of the deck. We shall see.

Definitely makes sense that it would be the case, regarding your point about thickness. I agree with the argument that mob thickness slightly detracts from concave feel of board ( not that it's ever actually bothered me ).
  Anecdotally regarding mob quality degrading over the years...I have an old used Louie board, size 7.3 lol. Mob on its still grippy as shit. Decks definitely skated and quite old, judging from the stickers job probably from 2010 - 2012 ish.

Update on the ďnewĒ MOB:
Usually only takes a day or two for it to bubble up in the pocket on the nose and this time it hasnít. Like stated above itís about the thickness as Jessup now but after skating it the grit is definitely the MOB that weíre used to (although a bit shinier). I had sworn off MOB before this but it was the only tape we had at the shop. If the quality stays the same as this box I will definitely get it again.
