    Projectfarm on youtube has a really good video testing different duct tapes. I watch a lot of his videos.

    There it is. According to the video that tape is like the best duct tape. Among the best at the very least.

    So they all seem to be prettier good. The high end Rex tape is amazing, but regular Rex and Gorilla are both good. Iím interested in the Gorilla weather for bodies as it seems to be flexible and wears well.

    You can find just about anything anybody talks about on these forums on amazon.

    I've never heard of Menards. Is that more or less a walmart?

    Menards is a retail home/building supply center based in the midwest, similar to Lowes or Home Depot if that helps.

    Mates, I read a lot of opinions of buyers of this tape, they says the tape is not good to gluying, but yes to hold objets when you need it.

    See the opinions in this link:

    I learned this while watching tire taping video.

    If you need your duct tape to stick extra well, hit it with a heat gun then rub the tape really good with your fingers.

    I havenít had a chance to really put the new high strength tapes to use yet.

    Yeah heating up the tape will make that adhesive super sticky. But be careful don't heat it up too much cause im sure it'll catch on fire.

    I recently glued some tires using this method and I got gorilla tape hot to where I couldnít touch it and it didnít bat an eye.

    I did use my heat gun on low. Mainly because I didnít want to burn myself.
