I had it a while back. Not sure if it was the 2.5. I do know that it was thin and grippy. best tape I've ever used. Expensive though. $34 versus the performance brand I buy for $12.
Currently using Fizik that I purchased on sale. Not much better than my performance stuff.

Just had it put on my bike. I really, really like it. Found myself riding in the rain this past weekend, and the combination of grip and conditioning was perfect. Rumor is that the white tape is hard to clean, but I wouldn't know; mine is black.

Picked up 20 rolls at Interbike for the team last year. I love it as I do not wear gloves. The white does not stay clean or clean up as well as you would think but the feel of the tape is great regardless. A lot more guys on our team are using it. It is on the pricey side but it does last and not wear as fast as some of the other Fizik products I generally used.
