i just bought the mutiny, and i don't want to hide the top graphics, i have a few designs in mind, but how clear is the clear grip tape? and how long does it last in comparison to regular grip tape

I think clear grip on that Mutiny is a no brainer. Colored/clear grip won't last as long as the regular black stuff, but I think just about anyone with that deck would live with it.

clear grip is plenty clear enough to see the graphic underneath. i have a strip of clear on my deck.

clear grip doesnt last as long as is usually a coarser grit that doesnt feel as good, but im sure you will get used to it.

your board definitely needs clear grip though. suuuch a sick top sheet

Where can I get clear tape. I would want to get it wider than my local skateboard shop has, it is only 8 inches wide.

they only make it in skate sized sheets. you need to get 3 sheets. if you do it right you wont see a seam, especially because its clear.

Thanks Mitch for the info, I am thing about cutting out circles of the clear and putting it on in a random pattern, or cutting strips and doing a striped pattern. Haven't figured it out yet. Still contemplating.

yes fins. haha

i sent you a message on myspace saying what it is.
but the screw austin gave us, which he pulled off of his integrity, sticks about like an 1/8th of an inch above the board, can we use a contersink bit on the top of the deck to make it so the screw is flush to the board? or will that go into the foam

It's fixed. The fin is on. The clear taped is on and it looks dope, you can see the graphics fine. Thanks everyone
