We started off splitting one batch of 12 and when that worked out, we moved up to a whole case load (well two cases) with other people sharing the order. Of the people who participated in my group order, only one person had an issue with one roll of tape out of 288 rolls of tape, or out of 300 rolls if you count the first order of 12 we had. Those seem like pretty good odds to me
I'm with Leslie. I always get my tape from Tape Depot and have had very little problems with it. Sounds like you might have gotten a bad batch. I would contact them about it.
I have occasionally had the middle hole in the tape spool be a little what I call "wonky", not quite round, but it isn't a problem to just work it onto the gun, pressing firmly until it sits properly.
For the difference in price I am more than willing to take a chance on an occasional glitch.
