I use the black Babolat Super Head Tape with white letters.
It protecxts the frame from getting scracted, while not as protective as the Gamma Cloth Tape, it still adds some protection.
I normally use two pieces on each frame, and have my 2 X 1.5 gram Babolat Lead Tape added at 10 and 2 under the Head protection tape, so you can't see nor touch the lead tape.
I reuse the lead tape twice, when I change the strings in my racquets.
I would never play without the protection tape, the grommets only protects the strings, not the sides of the frame.
