Since I use an out of print racquet, I prefer to protect my stick and headguard as I do go all out on court. I've always used Gamma head tape so I am luckily used to this slight slight change in weight and balance. It is quite durable and protective, and all my PT's have their original grommets/headguards (15+ years old). As long as my sticks don't break, I could care less how it looks oncourt.
