It is what it is- A big roll of gaffers tape. If you've never seen it, it's like Duct tape but you can tear it easily and peel it off of surfaces without removing the paint or leaving behind a sticky mess. It also is a nice flat black that wont add any reflections in your photos.

I even use it to attach color gels to my flash head. It stays taped onto the flash for years at a time- if I want to remove it, presto it's gone and no goop to ruin an otherwise nice flash. I also use small pieces to cover the Nikon logos on my camera bodies. Comes right off when it's time to upgrade!

I did an outdoor shoot for this company that uses Duct tape for various purposes. We used a piece on a concrete sidewalk to mark the spot for our subject to stand on- well the next YEAR we came back to do the same shoot and the Duct tape was still there- it survived a whole Northwest winter!

Another time we did a shoot inside a brand new remodeled nightclub. Again the company used Duct tape to hold the floor of our set in place. When we left, the tape pulled the paint right off the floor. We didn't stick around but I'll bet the owner will not be inviting us back!

Lesson learned: don't be like this company. Use what I, and the other real pros use: Gaffer tape.

Okay, But not as sticky or thick

I thought I'd try a roll of the "cheaper" tape. It's probably okay for 95% of studio work to tape stuff. I had just finished up a roll of A&E's P665 Shurtape. That is MUCH thicker (sometime hard to tear) and stickier.

So if you want a light duty gaffer tape that will handle most things, this is probably the tape. For me, I will buy the more expensive tape next time.

Nothing better to tape down rain sleeves

By yspm

Verified Buyer

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 30 yd, Black):

I use this to tape rain sleeves around the lens hood. Not utterly impervious to water, but works creditably and peels right off without leaving a residue. If I was a gaffer, it'd probably be great for that too.

Small roll of tape but it's just an illusion

By John Brune

Verified Buyer

Comments about Pro Gaffer Tape (2" x 30 yd, Black):

I've not bought gaffer's tape before so the smaller core makes the roll of tape look really wimpy but after using it I realized I'm just not used to it. Can't beat the price. Will order different and larger roll next time.

      Perfect for tucking into a Lowell Kit.
      If you can't do it with G Tape, Cloths Pins, Black Wrap, and cable ties, rethink your problem. ;-)

        Make your clients and venue owners happy. I have seen to many angry customers, with photographers using duct tape. This leaves residue on the floors, and to everything you attach it too. Gaffer tape, is quick, simple, and clean. Leaves behind no marks on the floor.
