Duct Tapes

Duck Tape Original

Surprisingly spending a bit more and getting Duck brand duct tape instead of off brand tape actually makes quite a difference. I much prefer Duck brand out of many cheaper tapes if I need a lighter/cheaper duct tape for the job.

Duck Tape Ultimate

I wouldn’t buy it again. It has a cheap nasty outer coating that looks like bin liner material. It also costs quite a bit for what it is. Doesn’t seem much stronger than Duck Tape Original. I would recommend getting Gorilla Tape instead if you need some extra strong and thick tape.

Gorilla Tape

Brilliant stuff. My go to duct tape for tough repairs. Durable outer coating and super sticky adhesive. Cross weaved fabric reinforcement.

3M Duct Tape

Cheap and nasty. Tears really easily and is super thin. Seems very sticky at first but it comes off easy when pulled latterly and leaves behind lots of residue.

T Rex Tape

Very strong adhesion however it doesn’t work well if you’re trying to stick two bits of metal together which are pulling apart since the adhesion will slowly move with the metal.

This tape I have however used to prevent a leak in a cracked bathtub and it’s still holding up 3 weeks later just fine. So it would appear this tape is pretty water proof.
