Cold weather paching tape

Recommended Posts

Been match director 30 years

 Last few years noticed tape is near useless in cold weather. Something has changed with the tape I've always used. Any suggestions ?? We always shoot thru winter in temps down to zerro.

You must have had quite a stash because I have been taping targets for 10 years and they never stick when it’s cold.😊

I made the change to pasters for that reason about 2 years ago, and it would be very hard to get me to switch back now. 

they have the added benefit of the matches running just a little faster, also our matches average about 90 shooters and we used to need to change all the targets at least once per match, now with pasters most reasonably open targets last the whole match, so while the pasters cost more you save some on targets.

Thanks Mike

Cost not the issue .tried pasters from shooters connection last year on a recommendation and they were slightly better. Shot at a club last weekend and pasters they were useing were falling off after first shooter at 30 degrees. Very frustrating. Looking for the best brand of tape or paster for cold weather

Don’t know as if there is one that works in cold temps.  We use the Shooters Connection ones also.  As said, they are ok but still can come off.

were using shooters connection as well, we don't normally get much below 30 for match temps, rain is our problem 

 

Interested to see whats out there
