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

    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.

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

          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've been using this tape for quite some time to tap down my wires on stage. It does what it's meant to do. It peels off clean at the end of the gig and does not damage the surface you apply it to or leave any stickiness behind.

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

                            This tape does what it is supposed to. It is a little thinner than other brands I use, so it has a tendency to fold over itself and won't come apart.

                              Whats not to love? This holds on carpet, hardwood floors, and just about any other surface.

                              I've used many other tapes to hold my photo backdrops down to the floor. All the other ones don't hold and just cause a headache.

                              I know whith this tape that I don't have to worry about that and can focus on everything else that needs to be set up at my shoots.

                                  It's sticky, but not too sticky.

                                  This is the tape one uses to hold things together, tie things down, anchor, support, and gerenally save lives of photographers without making enemies. No residue! It will pull off paint, however, so be careful.
