I used a competitive brand to help with a nerve problem in my hand, and found that after 2 days the tape was ready to come off. My hand therapist recommended the Rock brand and I ordered it the next day. I have had the tape on for 6 days and have determined that I have to stretch the tape further to accomplish what I am looking for, but that is something I have to adjust to my liking , as the tape will submit to my "toture" while I determine just what I need.

That correct, best tape Ever! Love it, can't live without it . Grateful my physical therapist turned me on to this product. Prayers answered, thanks a million!
This tape works so well on my foot injury. I think it helps reduce inflamation and pain.
I normally use the regular rock tape, the H2O tape doesn't stick as well and the roll is significantly smaller. I'm not excited about having to buy another roll of regular tape so quickly, as this roll is almost gone.
h2o is much better for swimming I can leave it on through 8 swims and no pealing and there is no skin peeling when I take it off!
I'm always dealing with an injury of some kind it seems. Right now that injury involves the Achilles. Taking that seriously and doing everything I can to keep it from getting worse so I tried the basic tape first. I liked that for every day living and workouts so I tried the H2O so I could continue my swimming. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone!
I am a PT and a tennis mom. I have used it on myself for various issues. I am an aquatic PT so I am in and out of the pool and this tape can really take it. It sticks really well . I also like the H2O version for my son who plays tennis. It really holds up better to all the sweat than the regular Rock tape. I highly recommend it!
Great product. Out lasts competitors' products by a long shot. I recommend it to all my patients and clients
Both knees have arthritus and Rock Tape is working well to reduce pain and increase my mobility.
I am a physical therapist. I use your regular rocktape at work. It is great. I work in an aquatic environment and we have no problem with it coming off, but on my son, I use your H2O tape to really withstand all the heat and sweat from his tennis matches. There is no other kinesiology tapes out there with that kind of "stickability". I love your product!
It is great, it does what it is advertised to do, stay on even if immersed in water.
It gives great support for the athlete who is explosive with quick athletic moves. It holds up well.
I get bad back pain and can not stand up. It is like knives going through me, usually I am down for several days. My chiropractor used the tape on my back and I was walking up straight with out pain with in a few minutes. That was almost a year ago and have been using the Rock Tape ever since. I also fell and broke both shoulders and both arms, after healing, my arm muscles got very painful and could not raise my arms past my waist. The same Dr. put the tape on my arms and I was able to raise my arms above my head with out pain. Thank you so much for this product. I will continue to use it so I don't have to take pain medications. I am able to be up walking and working in my yard and doing my own house work, plus other activities I was unable to do. Thank you again.
I use this Magical tape for ankle stability (taping for an ankle sprain) and I run. I have used the other brands and they last maybe two days after the sweating and showering. Rock Tape stays on and supportive for a minimum of 5 days (2 -3 runs, 5 showers [even baths] ). Like I said before magic tape. To Rock Tape: Job well done with this adhesive and tape fabric blend. Thank you.
I am a Certified Rock Doc and a Licensed Massage Therapist and have been using various types of Rock Tape on my clients for more than 2 years. Rock Tape is the best K-tape on the market, and when I started using H2O, I was truly amazed! It stays on forever (or until you take it off). No worries about sweating or water sports . . . that is what it is designed for. Now I use H2O exclusively for all my clients and my husband, who is a UPS driver in Phoenix. Rock Tape has delivered a truly outstanding product for use by anyone, no matter what their needs are. H2O rocks!
Looking for tape that is almost unnoticeable. This tape, from a distance, is discreet. Of course, all the RockTapes stick like glue!
It stays around my kneecap for about five days, even after bathing every day. It really helps, too.
I never thought I would be able to heal after my horrible fall 6 months ago. Dr. told me to quit crossfit. He said lay off your foot completely. no MRI. But some serious pain kept happening. 1 month goes by and I met with Rocktape at the south-central regionals and got taped up. immediately I could walk again! my career has picked up and I am hitting all sorts of PRs. It may take time to adhere but once stuck it stays good for days! Love it! thank you rock tape! H2O tape holds better with sweat and water sports.
Rocktape, whether regular or H2O, is the best of the tapes out there. It is the only one that stays with me for three or four days as a firefighter/paramedic. I think the older batches were a little more tenacious,that is why I gave it four stars instead of five. But I still go to Rocktape when it's time to re-order.
I've been using RT for nearly two years now for shin splints and can attest to its healing prowess. A couple months ago I bought a beige roll from a local store just like I always do. When I started using it I noticed how much stronger the adhesive was compared to the numerous other rolls I've used in the past. It was so strong that I had to use rubbing alcohol to remove the residue afterward. At first I was bothered because I thought RT F'd up a perfectly good product by putting a different adhesive. It wasn't until I bought another roll that I realized there was a slight difference on the box. Rather than a silhouette of a man running there was a chick holding a surfboard with "H2O" in relatively small print above her. I suggest RockTape makes the packaging more obvious for the H2O version. Both versions work the equally well, it just helps to know which one you're buying/using. Cheers.
RockTape was recommended to me by a friend after I was recovering from a sprained ankle. I use it for soccer and running. I can't believe how much it helps. I watched several of the videos for ankles and picked the one that looked best for my condition. It's much easier to apply than regular tape and continues to help my ankles after my activities.
