pronto drywall tape


has anyone tried this yet looks interesting and have ordered a free trial sample. cannot be used in a taper ,has its own built in adhiesive ,thicker than coventional tapes but the reasoning is its supposed to save on the amount of mud/compound used. states its adjustable after initial tack and bond strengthens over the coarse of a couple of days. fully coatable immediatly mud/hot mud.

Re: pronto drywall tape


Used it Friday. Looks like good stuff. Should be at nearly 25 bucks a roll for a 100' roll. Does use a little less mud, and is sticky, and coats nice with the boxes. Didn't try it in the angles. Too hard to get self adhesive to bed properly in an angle. But flats look good. I think it will stand up better than paper tape in temp changes. Good in certain situations. Worth your time to get the sample roll.

Re: pronto drywall tape


$25 a 100' roll . An avarage house would use $500 worth on the seams.

Re: pronto drywall tape


I sure didn't think it was worth the money. They try to convince you it saves enough mud and time to offset the cost. Nope....

Re: pronto drywall tape


just another gimmick for those gullible enough to try it. i really would not ever trust anything without mud behind it.

Re: pronto drywall tape


I will say I tried the two rolls they sent as trial on a garage back in May of '08 when this post was written. The garage has no joints peaked or showing. It looks great. And it is an unheated garage. So the tape stuck and have stayed stable for three and a half years. That's pretty good, I'd say. But still would have a real hard time spending $25 a roll for a 100' roll. So that is the only time I used it.

Re: pronto drywall tape


I was going to buy some but then I saw the little circles and was like wtf why not stamp stars into this tape instead of circles. And I got mad and just bought some sheetrock papertape instead. Plus I was able to afford lunch that way.

Re: pronto drywall tape


holy I'm sold, at the 3:31 mark, he says he can get away without sanding it
I like the concept, now make it run through a bazooka

Still think they should make a type of duct tape, that could act as a drywall tape
