We’ve been continually improving ABG Stretch Tape since its invention and patent. For example, we recently added a parchment liner over the cardboard core to guarantee every inch of tape can be used without sticking when the last bit is unrolled. 

Our latest idea was adding black dye to the traditionally clear adhesive to make the finished roll appear more black and cover the lycra threads on the cut edges for a better appearance. However, we received feedback from customers that the black dye was leaving an unsightly residue on their thumbs. This byproduct is unacceptable to us!

We promptly visited our adhesive manufacturer and shared images of our customers’ hands. They have since reformulated our adhesive to prevent this from happening in future runs. In the meantime, WE ARE DISCOUNTING ALL REMAINING AFFECTED INVENTORY TO COMPENSATE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE IT MAY CAUSE.

It’s important to note that in our lab tests, the performance of the recent Black Magic equals or exceeds that of our previous production runs. The issue is purely cosmetic, not related to performance. 

We posted a video (along with the product images) demonstrating a technique, used daily by our team, to clean the equipment and our hands. It is the quickest way to remove tape residue from your skin. 

We hope this video proves helpful to you.

We appreciate your continued support as we strive to maintain our position as the World’s Best Thumb Tape™.


Product Description:

Since 2012 ABG Stretch Tape has been the OG in the weightlifting game! Our unique fabric and coating technique is so exclusive that it warrants a US Patent!

White Magic, specifically developed to be the ultimate tape for Olympic Lifting, is perfect for wrapping a thumb to improve the hook grip, wrapping an entire palm to protect a torn callus, or around a shin to prevent barbell cuts.

At first glance, it appears to be medical cohesive tape available everywhere. Cohesive tapes intentionally stick to themselves and do not stick to hair, wounds, or skin– like a pre-wrap.  Cohesive tape is NOT beneficial for weightlifting.  ABG Stretch Tape is an adhesive tape that, by design, will stick to your thumb and not move during training.

We manufacture our ABG Stretch Tape by stitching a unique elastic thread into a very lightweight, 100% cotton fabric, utilizing an unusual weave pattern that ultimately gives the tape the best feel while maintaining strength.  Next, the adhesive is applied in a specific quantity, using a proprietary technique that allows a small portion of the glue to bleed through the fabric.  This feature is both the reason it sticks so well to you, and to itself. The adhesive is on BOTH sides of the tape!

Durable, flexible, water resistant, lightweight, and effortless to hand tear with maximum adhesive and grip make this tape unique in the field.

It will not slide off during heavy lifts, will last entire workouts, and remain on even with tremendous sweating, even getting wet. All this while remaining flexible for a perfect grip. It’s like Magic!!

ABG Stretch Tape is proudly sourced and manufactured in the United States of America.

100% Made in USA!

Each roll is: 2″ x 20′  (5 cm x 609 cm)
