After 19 years of Ebay sales, I decided to replace my old tape gun. It's a Duck brand, probably the cheapest one I could find at the time I bought it back in 1998 when I started selling regularly on Ebay. It's the only one I've ever used.
I'm actually surprised that it has held up this long. But, the last 5+ years of nearly daily duty has taken its toll. It no longer holds the tape on the roller, instead often letting it fall back on the roll, where I have trouble finding the end. The spool has become so worn that the tape rolls slip off. It's become a constant source of frustration when trying to pack up 20+ items for shipment.
Like I always do, I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out which was the best brand to get for everyday use. After searching reviews, I finally just asked the guys at the Pak Mail where I drop my mailing off what brand they use. Uline Pro was the answer. So I got one, ordered on Ebay from seller maild.
Hopefully this one will last as long as the last one.
