Is this brand good? Have anyone used it before. Cos i only know that the gaffer tape used commonly in CS bro is from Apollo.
I personally feel the RS Gaffar tape is not good. I peel off 1 piece from my camera body after 1 week and its already have sticky stuff on it. Its glue is white and very visible on the edges unlike the other brand (cant remember which brand) where the glue is black and not visible.

The best gaffer tape money can buy is made in Japan by 3M/Sumitomo Corp. Very strong and yet easy to peel. Does not leave sticky marks at all. It costs almost S$60-S$70 for a 50m roll.
