No. Not so good. I picked up the roll from Home Depot thinking of how well this could work, and have concluded after finishing the roll today, that honestly, I'd rather go with duct tape. There's nothing amazing about how many times I had to retape after retape just to make it hold. Duct tape would've worked just fine. Just stick with old faithful duct tape people.🦆🦆🦆

I was wondering about that brand (relatively new, over here); your experience reminds me of mine when J.B. Weld first came over here....how I cursed Yank hype 🤭

J B Weld will fix anything. That's some amazing stuff. The also make this other glue it is the strongest bonding super glue I've ever seen. I wear dentures and the lower's broke. I tried everything and then I found this JB Weld super glue amazing stuff nothing else worked. We have a saying in the trucking industry. Should always have J B Weld Duck Tape zip ties and Bailing wire you have that you can fix anything.

That's almost what the promotional stuff said! 🤣
I tried it back in the 90s....how much it's changed??? Dunno.
We had our own British stuff, but it was costlier at the time (I'm out of touch, now), but was much better performing.
I also stand by ye olde reinforced packing tape for it's amazing stick-fastedness; I've yet to find anything on a par.
Another old goody was the textile repair tape (as used in the mills); I got a load from a local flea-market, back the 90s (again), and used it for sealing the inner liners of disposables (back when their absorbancy wasn't worth a toss and you'd bumf them up with extra padding to increase their absorbancy....and to try to get that thick baby-diaper-look that you'd seen on the telly 😁). That tape would outlast the rest of the diaper (and that's amazing considering what it'd endure)!
