I haven't used it. None of the guys I hire for drywall have suggested it. Could work I suppose. I am suspicious though and if I were to try it I would not on a major job to start.

If it's made by Grabber it's should be a good product. No I haven't used it. I'd like to see what it costs per roll. I'd like to know if it will cover with 2 more coats of ready mix mud (bed and skim) or if a 3rd coat is needed due to shrinkage. Setting type compound may be recommended for the first coat to minimize shrinkage. It would be worth looking into probably....

I wonder about the ergonomics of all that hand work. How long to calouse up for all this hands on.. Worker comp ?

what about a product that doesn't require tape at all?

oops... they call that panelling...old hat (style) and few want it anymore.

Wow! What a lame a** and misleading video.

You still have to apply mud to fill the taper, so you still have to wait overnight for mud to dry. You still have to unload the truck and all that "expensive equipment." Totally bogus video.

Now on to the tape itself. I know people that like it. I tried it and it bubbled for me, so it wasn't a big advantage to me.

The local do-it-best hardware has it for $5.29 per 2-1/16" x 125 roll.


From my limited drywall experience (I hate it), taping is not the hard or time-consuming part of drywall finishing.
