Rated 4 out of 5Â by Teggit Good little product.
Has been extremely useful when painting to get a good straight line. Especially useful when creating a flush finish where the ceiling met the tile grouting on the tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by X4JVL Great for professional finish
Much better than normal masking tape for preventing paint 'creep'. Easy to apply and remove.

I don't touch the "normal" crepe masking for painting jobs, certainly not for anything previously painted - glass and worktops fine, painted surface no.
No tape is going to stick to a rough dirty surface, so preparation is all important - fine open mesh abrasive then a rub down with much underestimated solvent, plain meth's. If there are slight imperfections with the surface, paint will always bleed under the tape.
As for pulling the paint off, that's pure bad painting - a test for paint adhesion has always been to stick a bit of the rough masking tape onto the paint then yank it off - a good paint surface will not pull off.
I'm changing exclusively to water-based paints, often on top of old gloss solvent paint - same system, rub down, meth's then Zinsser Bull's-eye primer #from Screwfix#. Nothing wrong with this tape used properly. Decent masking tapes on the right surface gives a superior finish and saves hours in cleaning up
