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.

This tape won't leave a sticky mess

By James

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

Certainly you would use this tape if working in a hotel or venue where you must keep things pristine. It holds down wires and cords well and when you remove the tape after your assignment is done it doesn't leave residue. It's a big step up from duct tape.

Much better than duct tape

By Karen

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

I've been using duct tape for putting an umbrella on a tripod (yes, it's as awkward and messy as it sounds) so I can have some shade for me and the camera while I shoot video outside all day. Duct tape leaves a terrible mess. This is a big improvement.

Just Plain Gaff Tape

By Eugene

Verified Buyer

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

This gaffer tape did the job. I prefer this to black duct tape, because it is easier to pull off the roll, and easier to tear. However, it could have had a little more adhesive for my taste.

Nothing better to tape down rain sleeves

By yspm

from Northern VA

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

from Fort Wayne, IN

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.
