I've been using this tape for a while now, and the main reason is because it can withstand the sweat and intensity of our baseball and softball players in the heat of summer down here in the Carolinas. I regularly tape the medial arch as well as the heel cord for most of our athletes who wear cleats frequently, and this tape holds longer than other brands I've used in the past

I love this stuff! If works great, lasts long and get instant results!!
Purchased ROCKTAPE for my daughter's shoulder after we had tried both ROCKTAPE and KTape from our Chiropractor. ROCKTAPE provided far superior support and lasted more than twice as long during long, hot, sweaty marching band rehearsals. Not too long after, I used it on my knee for meniscus issues (we have a genetic connective tissue disorder in the family). Wish I had known about this stuff years ago when I was first diagnosed! Two application tips to keep in mind - round the corners before applying and always warm the tape and area when applying (rub gently) for the best adherence.
Product was recommended by my physical therapist for an Achilles heel issue. Product is easy to apply and comfortable to wear for extended period of time.
I am a martial artist with allot of problems in my foot and ankle . I have tried every other tape out there to help support the areas that need it most. Since there is allot of SWEAT and friction to the tape all the other fall off 1/2 way through my workout. Not the Rock tape. I place it where needed and never think about it again. Allowing me to concentrate on my training.... Thank you for making sure an amazing product!
I think this product helps my chronic shoulder pain. I placed a strip on my knee where I have some lingering meniscus damage and after a few hours the pain was excruciating and persisted for a few days. Do not put this tape on your kneecap/meniscus area!
Most Popular of all the colors i have in my kit
As the saying goes... You get what you pay for. Rock tape is by far the best K-tape I've used. I suffer from chronic knee issues and K-tape has been a steady tool in my rehabilitation ritual. Solid material, more durable than most of it's competitors on the market. definitely worth it.
I've now used both rock tape and kt tape. I really liked that this stuff was more effective on my shin splints as opposed to the kt tape, but it peels itself of within a day or two of application onto clean, shaven skin. I guess I'll have to give the extra sticky stuff a try.
Purchasing ROCKTAPE was definitely worth the investment. I'm a fan for life. Experienced some Posterior Tibial Tendonosis Dysfunction in my right ankle. The support of this product relieved the pain and soreness within 24 hours. Make sure you warm the area you applying the tape to prior to applying. Rub the tape in also, and avoid pools if possible. Worked great during and after working out.
I've used almost all of the brands of tape out there, and always prefer Rock Tape. It sticks, looks great, and stays on for days. Black goes with everything!
I standardize on rock tape for treating dowager's hump. Great product... sticks to the skin for very long periods of time.
Sticks to the skin very well and very strong material.
i am a certified roc doc and love their products. I not only use it on my clients but i personally use it as well
Rock tape is an excellent product. I was present at the last two ANJC conventions
I've used many different brands of tape and Rocktape stays on better than any other tape, and my patients love the variety of prints.
I need a reliable product to apply to my athletes--and this is it!
I've had kinesiotape that falls off by the end of the day it is applied. This tape lasted through a full week of football practice, including warm tub, cold tub, showering, and massage.
The only tape that actually adheres like it should. Every time I wear it, I get asked by many people "what is that?" And "does it work?" My only reply is "it's rock tape and it works for me!" Enough said
I've tried other brands and this one is the most effective and lasts the longest. Some are cheaper but you'll spend about the same anyway because they don't last as long and aren't as effective.
love it it help reduce pain and most time no pain
I recently had a distall bicep reincertion surgery done and the rock tape has worked wonders for my recovery.ive tried all the other brands and Rock Tape really ROCKS! Thanks for a great product at a competitive price.
Our chiropractor showed me how to tape my husband's shoulder to relieve pressure and increase blood flow to the injured area, (torn ligament). Husband says Rock Tape relieves strain and fatigue. Chiropractor and orthopedic surgeon agree my husband is healing remarkably well and fast due to Rock Tape. No physical therapist required this time!
We need the Po's on our orders so we can track where they need to go in the Hospital. The tape is great!
Recently tired several competitors, I have to say Rocktape Is the best. Competitor’s products fall off after several minutes. Rocktape stayed put for several days. I actually had to pull it off. Great products!!!!
Have used the tape for shoulder and low back with patients. Stays in place for at least 5 days even with showering/swimming. Very effective
Does the job everytime. More sticking power and durability than the competition. Rave out to my PT for turning me on to Rock Tape.
I am a new chiropractor and I am the only practitoner in my area that currently does it and my patients love it. Also, the Black tape is always the first to go! Thank you for this great product and improving the quality of my patients lives.
I have used different brands and I'm pleased with this product.
It is easy to order and arrives quickly. Black goes with two of the area schools colors and the kids love it. It along with all the other colors are our number one pick.
I've used several other brands of tape. Rock Tape sticks the best. The colors are by far the best as well. I get the orders shipped super quick, and the prices are right on.
This is the best tape out bar none!!! This is just one of the tapes I have used and have been extremely pleased with. I have used it on my elbow and knees. And it workes like a charm! Thank you all at rocktape!!
I used the tape for my daughter who was suffering from shin splints from field hockey. I believe the tape worked very well. Her pain resolved within 3 weeks using the tape during sports only. I am a physical therapist and was very impressed with the results. The only drawback is that it is expensive to use for one time application. Due to it irritating her skin, she applied it only for a two to three hour period during her sport events. We went through a roll of tape after just a few days.
I have tested other brands in both my office and personal use. Rocktape is the most durable brand I've found.
