    This tape is great! So great, in fact, that someone apparently keeps stealing it for purposes unknown. Which is annoying! Then I buy more. Because I need it. I use it mostly for product photography but I can only imagine that my unknown kleptomaniac is using it to mend frayed wires or hang up photos of kittens. Not his kittens, mind you, because this person is all about other people's stuff. That guy is the worst, but this tape is pretty darn good.

    I got this as an experiment since it cost half as much as the industry standard.
    It works almost as well but here is what I found to be problematic.
    It sticks every bit as good as Permacel but I found it twice as hard to rip off a small piece when I needed it.
    Also i have had mixed results on painted surfaces. On a good commercially painted wall there were no problems, but with generic home interiors I had it peel paint on a couple of occasions.
    Not a bad replacement product for non critical areas.
    I will use the good stuff if I have any doubt about the surface.

              Better than cheap online tape

              By Steve S

              from Texas

              Comments about ProTapes General Brands Pro Gaffer's Tape - 2.0" x 55 Yards (Black):

              I purchased some online brand thinking I got a deal. When I went to use it, I found it didn't do what I wanted to do with it. I was trying to tape/hinge together two v-flats. The next day the cheap internet tape had fallen off the sides of the v-flats. I couldn't believe it. B&H to the reacue. Used this brand and no problems. It's a much thicker tape that holds strong, yet does not destroy most surfaces (if you need to remove it). When in doubt, trust this brand, it's real gaffer tape.

              Gaffers tape is a must for any serious wedding photographer. This is a great deal for the amount provided.
              FAR less expensive than in Israel, for certain.

                    I just received delivery and have not used the product yet. What blows me away is that the order was placed one day and delivery was made the next day at no extra cost. I am accustomed to waiting ten days to two weeks for delivery. This policy is about taking care of the customer. I don't know about the product, kudos to B&H.

                          I never go on a shoot without this Gaffer Tape. I've used it to secure lav mics, to position reflectors, for talent marks, and about 500 other things. I've found General Brand to work just as well as any other brand!

                                  This tape is of high quality and thin so you can tear it quickly with your fingers. The thicker brand tape is excellent also but is costlier and not as flexible for small repairs and audio wrapping.
                                  Most tape will dry out and leave a white powdery residue after a year or less, faster if exposed to the sun. The best way to remove that residue is with
                                  Mineral Spirits or Denatured Alcohol.

                                      Big ol' roll of tape. Sturdy stuff. A little pricey.

                                        This tape is great! So great, in fact, that someone apparently keeps stealing it for purposes unknown. Which is annoying! Then I buy more. Because I need it. I use it mostly for product photography but I can only imagine that my unknown kleptomaniac is using it to mend frayed wires or hang up photos of kittens. Not his kittens, mind you, because this person is all about other people's stuff. That guy is the worst, but this tape is pretty darn good.

                                            I use this gaff tape all the time to tape my cables and floor mics. Very happy with the performance and feel of the tape.
