The glue strip do not leave gaps if you lay it carefully. But if you are sloppy, there is no moving it once it sticks.
Isn't the so called "click together" type considerably thicker than the "glue type"? That is my understanding, and was the case for me. I have both types in my house. The allure Ultra wasn't available when we installed the original Allure. It is thinner and shows most every irregularity of the underfloor (in our case, concrete).

Just went back and looked at mine, it's not the Ultra, it's the original Allure, and it's 4mm thick which is the thickness of two nickles, and nothing telegraphs through it.

The regular Allure is:
  • 3.8 mm thickness x 6 in. width x 36 in. length
  • 4 mil wear layer offers protection against damage
The Allure Ultra is:
  • 5 mm thickness x 7.5 in. width x 47.6 in. length
  • 20 mil commercial-grade wear layer with a ceramic bead overlay
Maybe your floor is smoother than ours? The regular Allure planks show pretty much every flaw of our floor when you view with the right angle. Still looks good though.
