Good Deals on Gaffers Tape or Console Tape?

Hey all- i was wondering if anyone has bought expendables in bulk ? I saw a case of gaffers tape for 300.00 and I was wondering if its a good deal or not? We are going through a lot of it for taping down AV cables.

Is this good?

all gaffers tape is not created equal

There are gaffers tapes that are priced at less than $300/case, but you usually get what you pay for

Tape that uses natural rubber adhesive rather than synthetic adhesive costs less but is more likely to leave residue

The thickness of the cotton cloth from which the tape is made can also impact the price- 10 mil tape is less expensive (and less strong) than
11.5 mil or 12 mil thick tape

Not all gaffers tape is the same "standard" roll length and it may be offered in 50 yard, 55 yard or 60 yard rolls, so it is not possible to
compare the price of one against the price of another without comparing the lengths

Specs of all major gaffers tapes made in the US can be found here http://*******/8hS2mV
