We've always used Permacel, and recently tried Rosco but weren't happy.  Has anyone used brands like barndoor, filmtools, or kupo gaffer tape?  If so was it any good?

Have used several brands Bogen, Permacel,  Polyken, right now Pro-Gaff.  I don't see much difference, I like tape that I can split and tear easily.  Some does not (at least in my hands).

I thought the classic debate was Shurtape Vs everything else. Shurtape is much thicker and rips easier, but its a bit more expensive
