Duck Original Cloth Tape 50 Mesh Silver 50mm x 50m
Not too bad
I chose this tape because of the brand name and my past experiences with it.
When I used this tape, I noticed that it was quite thin. It can be a bit messy trying to cut it with scissors; in the end, I just used my teeth for a quick and easy cut!
I am tempted to try alternative brands the next time I need gaffer tape, as the Duck one is quite expensive.

Quite sticky but very thin tape. You can tear it by just pulling hard. Cheap tape at not a cheap price. Wont buy again

This tape stuck well and made the tight seal I was looking for. However it was harder to work with than the heavy duty duck tape I had previously. This tape is thinner and did not tear off consistently, it often did not tear all the way across and split down the middle. It required much more care and more fingers to tear it properly. I much prefer using the heavy duty version.

Not as good as it used to be
I use duck tape as masking tape on a fibreglass boat, have done for years. It's always worked well and removed easily without leaving residue, but the last two batches have been awful, leaving me a lot of work with white spirits to remove the traces. It's still good tape, but I'd be careful about what's left behind if you intend to remove it.
