Wow!!! I guess at $16.85 for a 50' roll, of known premium quality marine formulated tape, I have a good value.

BTW I have tried like heck to find a white formula that is a comparable quality to the Bed-It gray colored tape. As of yet the product just does not exist. My manufacturer claims the "fillers" that make it white prevent it from being the same quality as the gray. There are over 50 manufacturers of butyl tape I know of, not just resellers, actual extruders, and the quality varies tremendously......
