A Consumers Reports Recommended Masking Tape

We were discussing masking tape at the last CMMG meeting.

In the latest issue of Consumer Reports (March, 2013) the tape that produced superior results over all others was FrogTape. This is now available in Canada. You should be able to get it at Canadian Tire, Home Depot and Walmart.
"FrogTape Delicate Surface tape was the clear winner. It left a very sharp line, was easy to remove, and didn't damage any surface no matter how long the paint had dried or the paint was left on."
The only drawback I can see with this product is that it only comes in the one width. At least that's what the implication is on the company's web site.
