I've been searching through the threads trying to find one about tapes. Maybe I didn't look hard enough, but i thought i'd start a new thread anyway. What kind of tape do you prefer? I know some people swear by gaff, and its all they use, but i've found in some quick fix scenarios, gaff's sticking power is pretty worthless. From my limited experience, duck (brand name, not a typo) tape, which is the same as duct tape, has amazing sticking power, but leaves a residue. We use aluminum tape to cover seams in foam board sheets. We use spike tape for marking cables. What do you guys use different tapes for and which ones do you prefer?
