Rollerwhiz- I've never used nor heard of frog tape. Checked out the site, appears to be a useful tool. We seldom use tape and when tape is needed i will try frog tape. :thumbsup:

It was in Popular Science as a Top 100 Innovations of 2007
I've not seen it for sale, nor would I use it as I don't use tape for cutting lines

I would however like my better half to try it
She's a good one to gauge whether or not something's helpful to DIY/occasional painters
I'd like to see if/how it works

Slick--forget cutting lines--I don't use tape for that either--but if this stuff works well, stripes will be a breeze. I do a decent amount of faux too, and there's tons of taping involved there.

Ah...I see...
That would be very helpful

I have been asking around, and trying to get my favorite Paint Store to get it in...no luck so far...in finding anyone who's used it or carries it

I can't help but think if it got that PS "award", it really shouldn't actually suck

I found it at a local ACE, best tape I have ever used, no blead and we put it on Regal matte that had only dried for about 2 hours. This stuff is great.:thumbup: :thumbsup: :clap: :thumbup1: :icon_cheesygrin: :rockon:

Frog-Tape is the "shizz"?!?!

...Not sure what I said there:no: ...anyway...!!!

We tried Frog-Tape last November at our ACE. Price was higher than standard "blues", but it sold OK. Ran out before Christmas.
Just after Christmas, we started getting calls...
"When are you gonna get more of that tape in:eek: ?!?!"

THIS WAS ABOUT TAPE!! I've never had THAT come up before!

We can hardly keep it in stock now:notworthy: !

The chemist who invented the 3M blue tape had left the company at some point. Last year he invented this stuff! It's got a sealant at the edges that activates when paint hits it. You can't SEE it, but it's there.
>>> I've not heard ONE bad thing about this tape!
(why can't I invent somethin' like this...:blink: ?!?!?)

The guys at Hirshfields were singing its praises the last time I was in looking for striping tape. I ended up using 3M though, but can't remember what turned me away from the frog tape....:confused1:

I've seen it in several paint stores and home centers around here. They've been buying 12 or 24 pak counter displays usually buy the checkout counter.

Guy marketing the stuff had good idea on his display.

I used it on a walls only job in an old Cleveland house with at least 1,000,988 coats of paint on the walls and trim. You can imagine the crooked, ridged up seam between the wall and base. I cleaned it really good, and put the Frog Tape on (they want you to apply with a lot of pressure) and it worked perfect. Excellent clean lines.

The other day I bought some Shurtape CP60 Razor Edge tape (yellow), it's a low adhesion tape that sticks well to clean surfaces. I taped off wood trim I'd finished, caulked a tiny gap with White Lightening Quicky Dry Caulk, painted and the lines are really something to behold. Absolutely zero bleed. Can't tell you the quantity for each product offhand, but the Frog Tape around here is $8-9 per roll and the Razor Edge is $5 - 6. I'd rather use the Razor Edge. The lower adhesion makes it unroll easier and is less risky.

I found it at my local hardware store, not worth the money. Orange core 3m work just as good and is cheaper.

Here in VT it is priced right alongside 3M. I tried it and can not find any real difference between it and 3M. It does come in a competely useless petri-dish looking container with a sealable lid. Unnecessary packaging, but great tape.
Why am I thinking about work on a Sunday?

It was about 1.50$ more then the orange core tape here, thats why I stuck with orange core, we do lots of stripes and orange core still our choice of tape.

Z,
Frog tape hardly has even a bazillionth of a % point of the market. The stuff is very good tape though. I know this thread is old, but wanted to get my opinion in also. CP-60 from Suretape is also awesome material. "Razor's Edge" I think is the name. It is very thin and see-thru! The see-thru is great for faux work in creating & bending a line. Low tack also.

But the Frog tapes paint hold out is the best non-creeping paint tape out.

I agree to both

not sure what your paying for it but Orange core is the same price here.. For stripping I use orange core for general taping of base boards I think frog tape is good stuff...

All tho I can do without the dish :)
