    I just bought 5 rolls off of the website - looking forward to using the stuff! I suffer from plantar fasciitis and some shoulder issues so hopefully with proper application it will help aid in prevention / recovery!

    I saw many players used kinesiotaping during Hong Kong Open 2012.
    Heard that Rocktape sponored Malaysian players.

    Chen Long was using poor quality kinesiotaping. It came off quickly.

    I have been using the Original Kinesio Tape by Dr. Kenzo, which is "Kinesio Tex Gold" for 2 years.I apply the full knee support taping method. It really helps me with my knee aches. I usually wear it for 2-3 days. It feels much more comfortable especially over long period of time as compared to the knee guard/brace.Tried Rock Tape, it is too rigid. Lack of flexibility. More like the rigid tape type of thing.Tried KT tape, more happy with the adhesive. Comes off very easily.Still prefer the original.

    I use kinesio tape for my lower back and for my knee on tournaments as well.
    I'm using kintex tape from kintex.de (German page). It's not that expensive but it has very good characteristics.
    The disadvantage is, that I have to shave my right knee for the tape and if I don't wear the tape, it looks really stupid :D
