I used this Gaff tape for big film productions and it did exactly what I thought it would do... hold down cables and wires. People walked over/onto it and it stayed put. This tape is like insurance, if you wanna make sure that you don't get sued cause someone trips over faulty wiring (cause for some reason you didn't make them fill out liability forms), buy this cause get what? On our production, no one tripped. We did not get sued. Oh! and it doesn't leave those nasty sticky markings either after your take it off. AND you can reuse it. That's what i do!

Only down side is that it's pretty bulky but that's why you have Production Assistants right?!

Use it to tape seamless to the floor. During a recent shoot it was used to tape the paper background to a carpeted floor. Upon removal at the end of the shoot, the tape had left a glue residue on the carpet which was difficult to remove. This is the first time I have had that happen with gaffers tape.

First experience with this tape.

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

I've never used this particular tape before, but I'm quite satisfied with this purchase. It's strong, does what Gaffer Tape is famous for - no sticky residue - tears easily by hand and has excellent holding power. I bought the small roll because I didn't want to go all-in for it before I tried it out. I calculated how much I would use for the next job where tape would be useful and the 12 feet should be more than enough.

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

Holds well, removes easy, and is strong. Other brands don't hold, or leave residue and don't stand up as well. Don't mess around, get the good stuff.

If you ask me to name five most useful equipment the gaffer tape goes indisputably into the list. The most versatile and magic thing to carry with you everywhere or to keep handy in the studio.

Good ol' Gaffer Tape

By John

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 12 yd, Black):

Gaffer tape is gaffer tape, pretty much. For those who don't know, however....it is far more useful than duct tape when monkeying about with photographic equipment...does not leave a residue. I use it mostly for sticking graduated ND filters on the front of my lens...easier than the actual filter holder.

Works. However, not the most adhesive gaff tape i've used. Slighty grayer then black.
