On application this duct tape is not as invisible as one would wish for, but neither is it the blazing grey badge of desperation you usually get with industrial duct tape. It’s a little less noticeable, but still retains duct tape’s old magic — a straight 90 degree tear by hand, durable strength, good sticking power. Another benefit of this transparent version: 3M claims it lasts 6 times longer than the standard variety, having been engineered for extreme temperatures and UV exposure. Since it has only been recently introduced, I can’t measure its full longevity but it seems to hold up remarkably well. Dispenses easier too. Good stuff. [Suggested by David Stubbs]
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
