Plastic Grafting Tape

I like the stretchable plastic tape better than the standard grafting tape myself and wondered what everyone else is using? The plastic gives a much tighter seal because it allows me to pull the tape firmer without breaking. That seal won’t make up for bad cuts but it does snug up the cuts together. I see the plastic tape from overseas http://www.ebay.com/itm/100mx2cm-Grafting-Stretchable-Tape-Moisture-Barrier-Plant-Gardening-Clear-/262359387987?hash=item3d15d68f53:g:V4AAAOSwI3RW-rip but am having a hard time finding the stuff I normally use. I have a couple of boxes of normal grafting tape which will get me through the year and work fine though like anyone I have my preferences on what I like versus what works.

Think I found what I was looking for on amazon. I’m not sure I will like the color but this is what I purchased http://www.amazon.com/Rolls-thick-Stretch-Ribbon-Garden/dp/B00JE6VOQU/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

For W&T, Cleft, Bark and Side grafts I use poly budding tape- http://www.amleo.com/poly-budding-tape/p/VP-34/ with electrical tape over the top of it.

For T-budding, I use parafilm

That was exactly what I had been looking for. Thanks Steve! I use tanglefoot on top of it http://www.amazon.com/Contech-98200-Pruning-Seal/dp/B001BCNL52/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1460341657&sr=8-5&keywords=tanglefoot+pruning+seal.
