I noticed this with pretty much every pro using Tourna grip. Rather than a slick red strip around the grip, I see several layers of white tape wrapped around. Did Tourna start producing white finishing tape instead of red, or this done strictly among pros? If so, why?

While it may not seem like a big deal many pros, or their stringers, cannot be bothrer with peeling the paper backing off the finishing tape so they just rip off a piece of athletic tape.

Pete had the white finish tape many years ago...not able to think of any current player with the white finishing tape.

I love this, my dad says I obsess about the small things in tennis like how a vibration dampener will make a difference. But...now we are down to the nitty gritty. IMHO White finishing tape would look really nice
