In the past I've skimped on gaffa tape, generally buying cheap stuff. However since I bought this, I'm not going back to cheaper tape! It's really nice to use and sticks well to a variety of surfaces. I often need to tape cables to the floor of barns, some of which can be quite dusty. This tape sticks where cheaper stuff won't. I also find it behaves better when taking it off the roll. A small point but when you use it a lot, it makes a big difference. Recommended.
