Genesis Excel Performance Tape Sample Pack

$8.99

Professional Bowlers Association Registered Product



Excel Performance Tape is a multi-use kinesiology tape developed to assist bowlers with ball fitting, release speed and

skin protection.

The highly elastic synthetic fabric stretches and moves with your skin and the patented adhesive leaves no sticky residue. The 2.75" x 1" (7cm x .5cm) size is perfect for wrapping around fingers and thumbs, but is also great for toes, heels and other small areas of the body that need some extra protection.

If you\'re not sure which Excel product will be best for you, this sample pack is a great item to start with. It contains 2 strips each of Excel 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 so you can test them all to determine which gives you the perfect fit.
