I use a lot of Gaffers in all different colors for live musical performances and stage shows. That being said, I've tried all brands - honestly, this tape will do the job but it's not the best. The side of the roll has a sticky residue to it and the tape isn't as thick and "cloth-like" as other Gaffers. The best I've used thus far is Pro-Gaff and after buying this, I will continue to get only Pro-Gaff. Like I stated before, this stuff will do the job, but it's definitely not what I would consider "choice" tape.

We decided to create a haunted castle theme for our Halloween party, and ordered a rolls of dungeon and catacombs printed plastic to cover the walls. We tried the Sticky Tack recommended to hang the stuff, and even the small pieces would NOT stay up more than a few minutes! We have smooth painted walls and wood crown moulding, and tried attaching it to both surfaces with no luck. We tried double-sided tape, with even worse results. After researching online, I found this gaffers tape. This stuff is what they use for set building and holding stuff for stage performances. I figured that, if it is good enough for a stage production, where you just can't have stuff falling down during a show, then it should work for our purposes. Eureka! All of the wall rolls, scene setters, decorations went up and stayed up! The tape is easy to work with, you can even tear it with your fingers, yet it is strong. It is matte black so does not reflect. For what I paid for this roll (and about 1/2 is still left after covering a lot of wall space!), I paid about as much for the other stuff that did not work, so Gaffers Tape is worth every penny. I wish I'd had it before, as it would have eliminated wasted time and frustration! I highly recommend this tape and will be ordering it again next year!

This tape is great!

The essential problem with tape is that it usually either sticks too much, or it sticks too little. It's so hard to find tape that will hold something in place for as long as you need it there, then allow you to remove it without tearing everything up, pulling paint off of the wall or leaving a sticky residue. This tape solves that problem.

Gaffers tape is the stuff that they use on the sets of plays and films to hold things together securely but temporarily. It does jobs like taping down wires and cables, attaching cloth to walls, securing corners of boxes, and so on. A small piece will hold almost anything where you need it to stick, then when you want to remove it, you just pull it up. No residue and no damage to what it was stuck to.

The one real problem is finding gaffers tape at a reasonable price; it's not a standard item at the hardware store, and it's usually not cheap. This product is the solution to both of those problems. It looks like it costs a lot, but you'll find the roll lasts a VERY long time.

Bottom line: This stuff works like magic, and it's a great value.

This tape is really good. It is really good for taping down cables and other things. It doesnt leave that gummy sticky residue like duct tape. And when it does leave residue, its really easy to take off. Its really just a matter of wiping it off with your fingers. Would recommend

It seems like it shouldn't need to be mentioned on a review of Gaffers Tape, but with so many companies selling non-gaffers tape as "gaffers tape", I wanted to point out that this product IS real gaffers tape. A number of companies are re-branding duct tape or vinyl tape as gaffers tape, when there is a definite difference.

Gaffers tape is similar to duct tape in terms of strength and the ability to easily tear it by hand (opposed to requiring scissors). The strength is very strong - you can tape objects to walls, use it to mark spots on the ground, use it as general strong-adhesive tape.. but in the end be able to easily remove it without tearing objects or leaving adhesive.

The tape is much more expensive than other types, but if you need a gaffers tape (which is usually for photographers, videographers or set designs), it's a great object to have.

The intertape gaffers tape comes in a VERY large roll (much larger than it appears in the photo -- imagine a 6x6" roll of tape, about 2" thick). Fortunately, you can re-package it to make it more portable (wrap it around a pencil, for example). With 60 yards (about 180 feet) it should be enough to last a LONG time.

The tape comes in a matte-black finish (opposed to glossy like you usually find on duct tape), is very strong and does not leave any adhesive when removed. After going through a few other brands CLAIMING to be gaffers tape, it was a relief to find that this one lived up to the name. Quality is very good, but it is a bit pricey.

Well, I only need very small amount - but I couldn't find anything cheaper on-line, so I bought this one.

It seems to be the real deal. No residue after I stick it on a piece of painted plastic for about a month.

I bought this tape to simulate the feeling of suede on my shoes soles for dancing. It was pretty smooth and helped in spinning better in my street shoes. I eventually bought a real pair of dance shoes because replacing this tape every week on my street shoes was getting pretty cumbersome. If you don't stick them on properly, they might come off while you are dancing so make sure to set aside some time and try pasting them in a seamless fashion on the soles of your street shoes. This tape is cheaper on Amazon than many other sites and there is a lot more of it. I don't know what to do with the rest of the tape roll...
