    I've heard bad feedbacks about Gamma's and good ones about the Babolat ones...any suggestions out there? Thanks in advance.

    Babolat's super head tape is really terrific; easy on and easy off. No sticky residue to peel off. It's better than their original head tape, Gamma's or anybody else's, IMO.

    You have a choice of Babolat, Gamma or Unique. Babolat is generally a pricy equivalent of the othe brands...I'd go with the Gamma.

    I use the Wilson PS 85 version without the bumper guard. I feel the Babolat is much better than the rest I have tried, including the gamma.

    Gamma isnt bad, the only problem is the ridges rises up for a day or two after you apply. But after you push it back it settles after 2 days.

    Babolat as it's double as heavy per inch.
    Less work.

    I use electrical tape as head tape on my racquets. It is cheap and easy to replace (no sticky residue). Most electrical tapes are 20mm wide.

    All head tape has weight babalot is probably the heaviest. I like it a lot with lead on the 3 9 positions. I love the muted feel because it feels solid all the time when I hit the ball.
