Yep, if it's the same why not? But if it's crap low cost tape it isn't worth it to me.
My explanation of the money savings isn't enough of a reason to buy the "right" stuff?
It's like sand paper, sand paper accounts for about 3% of the shops supply costs yet effects 30% of the labor. What sense does it take to use cheap sand paper if it has to be changed more and slows down production effecting that 30%?
There are things you can save money on, that isn't one of them in my opinion.
