What our customer don’t like about the Pre Cut Kinesiology Tap?
The main concern voiced by customers who have purchased his item is how the tape might be difficult for them to apply on their bodies.

Another people have voiced that the strips are not helping them relief pain, which is understandable as they are a tool that can help alleviate the pain, but not remove it completely.
Is it worth a purchase?
If you are an athlete, or are perfoming strenuous physical activity, the The Pre Cut Kinesio Tape is really a good buy. As always make sure on how to apply it before using it.
