The standard length for a roll of gaffers tape has been 55 yards for a long time. A supplier who sells other lengths may well be looking to take advantage of a customer who doesn’t know this.
More than one gaffers tape brand is advertising a very low roll price for two inch gaffers tape, failing to state up front that their rolls are only 30 yards long. Sometimes you have to drill very far down into their websites before you find this info.
We are proud to represent the two best known gaffers tape in the business-Pro Tape and Shurtape, and their roll length for standard colors is 55 yards.
Make sure that you are getting what you pay for by insuring that the length of the roll is not something you discover AFTER you make your purchase.
