Installing ShockTape on a Tennis Racquet:


1. Remove the old grip tape and make sure to sanitize the original grip. Be sure to get rid of as much adhesive and residue as possible by using rubbing alcohol.

2. Wrap the handle with ShockTape starting with the tapered side while gradually removing the adhesive backing. Do not over stretch as this causes the tape to tear. Some tension is recommended during wrapping.

3. Cut the end of the tape to finish the grip.

4. Apply an overwrap tape to the racquet. Materials consisting of cloth, rubber, leather or synthetic leather are acceptable in order to keep the ShockTape long-lasting.

Benefits of Playing Tennis With ShockTape

Playing tennis involves using a tennis racquet. Most tennis professionals keep their racquets up to date, as well as use necessary products to aid them in their playing performance. ShockTape is one of the best accessories to use when playing a match.

Vibrations with racquets are extremely common, and players are more at risk for injuries and fatigue. Joint injuries are the main injuries caused by tennis playing, and most of these are due to the shock coming from tennis racquets. Shocks can be absorbed by ShockTape, allowing players to play at full energy and strength. Tennis coaches strongly recommend that players use ShockTape on their tennis racquets.

It is recommended that ShockTape is used with an overwrap for cushion and grip enhancement. Not using is overwrap is still used at times, however, the surface is tacky and deterioration may happen. Thin overwraps give the racquet the longest life, as well as absorb sweat. Isolate It is trusted by a high number of consumers. Try our ShockTape today and improve your tennis performance!

Speaker Decoupling and Isolating Vibrations for Maximum Sound Quality – Isolate It


Speakers, turntables, and other objects that produce sound also produce vibrations. In order to produce maximum sound quality, vibrations must be controlled. Controlling vibrations has to do with the interaction between speakers and also the area that they occupy themselves in. These aspects will affect the sound that they produce. Speakers also have an interaction with the floor. Enhancements can me made to alter sound quality. Speak decoupling is a fantastic way of enhancing a speaker’s sound quality to its maximum potential.

The sound that is produced by a speaker comes from a vibrating membrane, as sound waves are experienced. The quality of sound is highly factored in by the membrane’s excursion accuracy, as well as back and forth movement. The key to good sound can be achieved by speaker decoupling which keeps a speaker enclosure from resonating, or in other words sounding. Aluminum and wood are low-resonance materials that are commonly used in the construction of speakers. Speaker enclosures can affect the ability of the membrane. There are a couple ways to stop distorted sounds by speaker decoupling, one of them being minimizing enclosure vibrations so the speaker is not directly lying on the floor. Wooden floors, for example, are usually very loud and it is possible to hear every single movement. This is why the rubber inside of tennis balls are commonly put on chairs and other objects to keep vibrations to themselves. Decoupling your speakers from the floor prevents the transfer of unwanted vibrations. Speaker decoupling products are generally used to prevent the transfer of energy. Available in many styles and fits, professional Isolate It products work extremely well for reducing the amount of vibrations that come from a speaker.
