What do I need and where do I get it from? Is it allowed in IPF comps?
Thanks

2 layers are allowed, although they can still ask you to re-apply.

BSN Strapple is the best I've used (and I've tried dozens).

Google it and you will find a few online purveyors

That looks ideal for competition, where you're limited to two layers. For training I like the white non-sticky goalkeepers' tape widely available on eBay, but I want more than two layers there.

I use the 2" stuff from https://thumbsuptape.com/

It's stretchy and sticky. I tried the stuff Macca suggested a while back and found it wouldn't stay put at the base of my thumbs too well.

Should be IPF legal but I only use tape for reps to stop my thumbs tearing up (doesn't happen on singles).
