Beware The 36 Yard Roll

YardstickThere are entirely too many “standard” size rolls when it comes to tape sizing. For years, the two standards were 60 yards and 36 yards.

Multiple times in the past several years, major tape manufacturers have reduced roll sizes as a way to raise prices without raising prices, if that makes any sense. It is the same tactic as putting less and less cereal in the box.

Lots of suppliers of gym floor tape sell 36 yard rolls instead of the long term standard 60 yards.

Shurtape 724 gym floor tape is still offered in 60 yard rolls and fair price comparisons are possible only when comparing price per yard.
