The tape is only there as I was holding the gimbal handle in that area and the notch that is stock in the foam was totally aggravating the crap out of me, so I cut the foam straight and then used baseball-bat tape and rescue tape to build the lower area up to be flush with the rest of the foam. Feels fantastic!
Hardly any wear at all (come on, 14 days. . .).
$1300 from Greg Bubb, before you pay the tax man.
Asking price: $1100.
Find attached a pic of a stock XCS Ergo handle (so you can see why/where I put the baseball-bat tape), along with a variety of centerfold-esque pics of mine.
Thanks for looking!
