ProTapes 001UPCG255MBLA reviews

Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 55 yd, Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 231.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trusted Gaffer Tape There are lots of competing products out there, and I've tried a few. Some lack adhesion, some I fear have too much. I'm done experimenting because there is no economy in getting ahold of something that does not work as expected. Plus, this product has earned my confidence so that I feel safe in taping over most surfaces. Early in my career, I witnessed an incident where a production company was forced to repaint an entire facility after gaff tape damaged painted surfaces. I can't afford those kinds of mistakes or the false economy of trying to save a couple of bucks on a roll of tape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to brand of gaffer tape = I bought this roll of ProTapes Pro Gaffer Tape (2 x 55 yd, Red) for grip use in photoshoots. This tape provides visibility as needed when I need people to see the tape to avoid tripping on wires or to mark where people should stand. I also use this tape to mark and distinguish my gear & equipment since it is easy to see like red lights are. From my experiences with using ProTapes (I also have a roll like this in black), the tape is very easy to rip as needed and apply. The adhesion is just right for me. It's got a good hold, yet you can remove it from surfaces without damage. I'd recommend having at least 2 rolls, one in black to be discreet and one in your favorite color to mark your gear and provide visible marks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaffer Tape Evangelist I am putting this stuff up there on my list of favorite things - ever. For quite some time, I'd just not bothered to have this in my toolkit. I needed to spiff up a studio space in a hurry. Painting wasn't an option given the timeline. I used a big roll of seamless paper and this tape and made the biggest, cleanest, whitest space EVER. It sticks to just about anything, including the ceiling material, painted walls, painted floors, drywall, light stands, etc. It doesn't leave a residue, but has been holding for several weeks already and I am confident through the project. Initially, I struggled with how to cut it and then I learned the art of ripping it and voila. Brilliant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not heavy duty Previously, I bought Shurtape professional grade by A&E and I have to say I like it better. While this tape has excellent adhesive, probably even better than Shurtape, it's not as thick. When you pull out a big piece, it's flimsy and can fold onto itself. That makes it difficult to work with and produces more waste. But if you want a slightly thinner tape, this does have good adhesion and is a flat matte black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using Gaffer's Tape for the first time. I was skeptical about purchasing this product at first, because I thought that I could use any time to just hold my backdrops in place. So the associate at B&H recommended that I use this tape. I tried it and I very impressed how it held the backdrop in place, but also how easy it was to remove the tape with out leaving any residue on the material. However, it was a little pricey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as Permacel 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need some tape to tape down my tape. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AHHHH, Gaffer Tape! Gaffer tape is perfect when you want to hold something securely, but not leave a trace when it's removed. I use gaffer tape for so much more than just photography sets. IT'S AWESOME!!!
