This all natural gum rubber yoga mat based grip is the great for Dragon Staff or Contact staff in wet or dusty conditions. It has nice small amount of cushion and after it breaks in it is not as grippy as EPDM so you won't have arm hair being pulled out while doing dragon work. We add a peel away adhesive backing to allow this grip to be easily applied and eventually removed without killing yourself to remove it (like with gorilla glue.)
It is 1/8 in thick, which is about 75% thicker than EPDM. You can choose between 1.5 and 2 inch strips. The 1.5 width will cover about 36 inches of a 3/4 inch staff. The 2 inch will cover 40 inches of a 7/8" staff. We recommend the 1.5" for contact staves and 2" for dragon staves. All strips are 68 inches long.
Innovation Nod - While we independently tested a bunch of different yoga mats and found we liked this one best, we later learned we selected the same yoga mat Wizard's of Flow choose a year earlier. We tried to contact them a few times to talk about how we could work together as we were majorly upgrading this solution by adding an adhesive backing, but we never heard back from them. However, to our knowledge, they were the first to use this yoga mat brand.
