Maybe it's been covered before, but...
I was balancing a set of blades for my Lepton today and a full piece of balancing tape was too much. I debated using a half a piece or maybe a thin strip of scotch tape, when I thought, "why not pin-striping tape". I used 1 full wrap of 1/8" PS tape and the blades were perfect. It looks better than that balancing tape strip too.

I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places...

I have different widths tapes for that reason. I also have black and white tape to match the blade color, so you don't see it as much.

You can get pinstripe tape in all colours too, been using it for a long time.

When I have blades that need balancing, I've been using clear packing tape. I cut it to the width I need and it always matches the color of my blades!

I use bright vinyl cut to the width I need. Orange dayglo one one blade provides easy tracking.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
