weaving tape warning

Angry I have found out the hard way, (dont we all) in using tape DO NOT use the following brand:

Scotch (tm) 233+ any size, Tape/Clinta/ruban. You will find that it rapidly collects dirt and dust not to mention the oil from our skin. This causes the threads to move around and not hold, and when you get on thread 89 of a design thread and 4 threads come off and immediadlty ruin the tension and some of the spacing, yoiu will not be happy.

I have found this tape fine for doing diamond wrap butt patterns, just wrap an entire round of it over it each night so it does not come loose.

I got this tape free from an un-named person who might work there, Iam not sure, I got like 24 rolls and now enough of my rod building carreer.

Just a warning folks, nothing to panic about.
Happy weaving, I have 3 in progress almost done.

For those who know whats going on, say a little prayer for Doc.
