rocktape

All the operator wannabes will be wearing this in 3…2….1…

It’s called Rock Tape, and former Magpul instructor and operator heart throb Chris Costa endorses it through his company Costa Lupus.  This is what it is apparently supposed to accomplish:

When applied to an area of the body, Rocktape improves circulation. This increase in circulation helps reduce fatigue or can help accelerate the healing process. Rocktape can also be used to help prevent injuries by providing extra stability to a joint without reducing range of movement. With Rocktape, athletes are able to perform stronger, longer.

Fair enough.  I don’t claim to know much about anything… but I do know that to the average person you’ll just look like a douchebag with flamboyant looking tape on your arm.

I’d just love to show up at some training classes and do a RockTape check just for my own enjoyment to see who’s drinking the Kool-Aid.  Right or wrong, you’re guaranteed to hear stuff like “Yea man, RockTape changed my life.  I operate in longer operations with less fatigue than before”.

Since I do nothing impressive with my time, I just might pick up some tape to wrap my drinking arm up and see how it preforms.

Thoughts?
