A buddy of mine actually suggested that to me when the A1 Fly was released. I've only had my Fly since last June and haven't used it enough to wear out the grip tape but I'll definitely try the deck tape when they need replacing.
Yep it was too simple of a project. I had trashed paper on Max's 1of1 A1 Fly when I got it and it was a slap in the face, make it better! So of course I had to. And yes the deck tape even feels better. But it was a ***** finding it in leopard print.
