Chainstay protector recommendation?

I need to replace the clear chainstay protector on my road bike. Does anyone have any experience with this Lizard Skins adhesive? Any other recommendations would be much appreciated.

I see you are in Denver, if you ski or snowboard you may have or easily get ski & snowboard tape that works great, its 14" wide and $3 a foot where we shop.

On my mountain bikes I’m using tennis racquet grips.
