I have been using this tape for years and I can personally recommend this tape to anyone interested. The thing with tape is that if you go cheap the tape is going to split and run, which is a complete pain in the rear. The dispenser is actually pretty handy and it is a solid dispenser, light weight but solid, and 6 rolls usually last about 6-9 months for me. I use this tape for sending catalogs through the US post office, which can be pretty hard on packages. The cheaper tape does not seem to hold up as well and does not look at professional.
