2.0 out of 5 stars Product has changed in the last year for the worse March 31, 2013
By Matt
Verified Purchase
I bought this item in February of 2012 and it was perfect. The adhesive did not leave a residue when removed, there was a slight texturing to the back which made it more durable and easy to rip off.

I bought it again two months ago and it's completely different. The backing is much weaker and does not rip as easily. I've had several occasions with this new one where I've removed the tape and the adhesive has stuck to the object, completely separating from the backing.

This tape is manufactured entirely different than it was a year ago, and in every way it's for the worse. I don't know if it's being produced by a different manufacturer or if something else has changed, but it's no longer the best choice on Amazon. This is one of the more affordable options here, but you're probably better off spending another dollar or two and choosing a different brand.

EDIT: 6/23/2013

I just wanted to provide a little more information here. Based on some other reviews here and some of the pictures submitted by other people, I now think that it may not be that the manufacturer has changed, but rather that this seller gets gaffers tape from different sources of varying quality and it's a complete gamble regarding which one you will receive. There is a very informative picture in the customer submitted photo section where a person bought four rolls and each was completely different.

In the last few months I've kind of gone a little gaffer tape crazy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Duct (or Duck) July 4, 2011
By J. Rew
Verified Purchase
This is great all-purpose tape, and one of the best-kept handyman secrets. Gaffer's tape is much better than the ubiquitous silver duct tape for lots of repairs and projects. I use it to affix bike computer sensor lead wires to my bike's frame, and this stuff sticks better and is more durable than any other kind of tape I've found. The fabric backing is very strong and offers lots of grip when attached to something. The adhesive is similar to that used on good quality duct tape (such as 3M) and far superior to the adhesive used on cheap duct or other kinds of tape. Gaffer's tape is excellent for attaching, removing, and re-attaching since it usually doesn't leave any residue and the tape keeps its stickiness. This tape is easy to tear by hand but it sometimes leaves the little threads like duct tape can if you're not careful with the tears. But overall it's easier to tear by hand than most duct tapes. The only quality that gaffer's has to cede to duck is in the weather-resistance department, where duct tape is a bit more water repellant. Overall, I reach for Gaffer's tape instead of duct tape for just about all my home and auto projects.

It's gaffers tape and it works great. Works for just about anything needed and won't leave the sticky residue. They also had very fast shipping

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Stuff, much better than Duct-Tape June 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
I am using this Gaffers Tape to cover all the light-emitting power display lights in my home, e.g. the backup battery, monitor power indicators, really anything that is bright or blinks. I have also applied it to the auto flash on my point and shoot camera, because I sometimes forget to turn it off before I snap photos. The tape completely blocks light, is easy to work with, and doesn't leave a sticky residue when I remove it.

I can't really give it higher praise than that, since that is precisely what I was looking for when I purchased the tape.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the gaffers tape I'm used to May 9, 2012
By notape
Verified Purchase
I just received this in the mail. I've been using gaffers tape for years. With my stash running out it was time to get some new stuff. This tape does do the most important functions of gaffers tape, it does not leave residue and you can tear it by hand. The fabric inside the tape, however, is far weaker than what I'm used to and the tape does not stick as much as I had hoped. Overall, this tape is not of the high quality that I expected from gaffers tape and I certainly do not think it deserves the rating it has gotten from other reviewers. In my experience gaffers tape should outperform ordinary duct tape in all aspects. These aren't the gaffers I was looking for, I'll go about my business and order some elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get what you pay for April 23, 2012
By JRulian
Verified Purchase
Not sure what tape the other reviewers received, but I won't be buying this again.

Bought to supplement my 'usual brand,' for a low budget event, that was going to need a couple of rolls, and maybe could become my preferred supplier and save my clients money.

4 rolls purchased - two different colors/kinds of tape received. One was the color and texture that I expected, the other three were more 'cloth like,' than any gaffers tape I've seen or used since I started using gaffers tape in 1983.

The four rolls are all different diameters and as promised they didn't leave tape residue. The residue problem is that they don't really stick to anything either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beats duct tape by a mile! August 4, 2011
Verified Purchase
For those of you who have never used gaffers tape, you need to start now! In all my years of TV production, gaff tape was invaluable. It peels off the roll easily, tears very easily, and sticks extremely well to almost any surface and in almost all weather conditions. The very best thing about this product is how easily it can be removed without leaving a trace of sticky residue like duct tape is known to do.Granted, this product is expensive compared to duct tape, but trust me, there is a good reason for that higher expense.

It's not true gaff tape, but for the price, it does work, just don't stick it on walls expecting it to not damage them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product.
Worth it's weight in gold. Gaff tape is know for being amazingly sticky and to leave no residue when removed. You should always have a roll of this laying around for any occasion.

If there is even the slightest hint of humidity this tape won't stick.

Great gaffer tape. Works as described, with the main virtue being that it doesn't leave a sticky residue like duct tape.

I use this tape for everything, it has a great hold without leaving any residue behind when I peel it off. It is everything Gaffer's tape should be.

It is not supposed to leave sticky stuff on whatever you put it on. Or maybe that only applies if its only one for a very short period of time--like an hour. Read more
