Chris Costa Announces RockTape as New Syndicate Partner

Chris Costa has announced a new syndicate partner. I’ll certainly say that Costa uses what works. Below is the story of how he learned about RockTape and adopted it. The take away here is that for him, RockTape works but he doesn’t want you using it unless you need it. Otherwise, it would be like hobbling around on crutches when your ankles are fine.

For those that saw me earlier this year I was wearing an ACE wrap on my left arm due to all the shooting and ground work I have been doing this year. I just haven’t had a chance to give my arm a break and there is really no let up in sight. A student that does cross fit showed up in my class recently with this tape on her arm and when I inquired to what it was and did it really work, she wrapped my arm up with this product called RockTape. I, like many others, figured I would just fall victim to a placebo affect and believe that having stretchy tape on my arm was really helping me. I have to say I was dead wrong. My arm normally twitches when I shoot, that twitch was gone and my arm felt almost normal when I was shooting. It gave me support but also increased blood flow that is normally restricted in that area.

RockTape makes many different types based on how aggressive and what environment you may find yourself in, for example water they make a H2O tape. One of the cool things is that this tape lasts for about five days, and yes that means taking a shower with it on. Is RockTape for everyone, NO. Don’t wear it to look cool, wear it if you need it. There are many other applications based on problem areas with the body. Please stop by and check them out.

    Very interesting to see that Costa is getting into RockTape, although I don’t use it myself I did see it being used fairly extensively at the Olympics this year. The makers of RockTape should start offering them in more tactical colors like black, OD, and khaki and they’d probably be a hit with the military and LEOs.

    Costa, REALLY?! Don’t get all commercial on us with this type of crap. Your shooting for gods sake, not running the quarter mile in nothing flat. I have every friggin video of you and Travis running n’ gunning in a badass way without ever needing a crutch like this “tape”. Take a pole of those currently out in the sandbox, I doubt that you would find anyone kitting up for the “hunt” and wrapping their arms in that stuff before they head outside the wire.

    Stick with the basics and stop pushing other peoples snake oil. Your better than that. There are better ways to earn $$$.
