I bought this tape for marking out sound desks and lighting desks, though I have found many other uses for it - marking multicore cables, marking DI boxes and sticking headset microphone wires in place. It is very strong tape, but is easy to tear where you want it. The fabric top means that it doesn't smudge when you write on it. One of the best aspects of it is that even though the adhesive on the tape is very sticky, it doesn't leave any residue behind when it is removed, even after weeks or months. Overall, is is excellent for its purpose and I will be buying another roll when mine runs out.
