Fiba Fuse
 
I recently have been turned onto Fiba Fuse products rather than mesh or traditional tape and in this pro's opinion they are worth checking out. I am currently using the the standard Fibafuse and the 36" Fibafuse tape as well as the crack stop which is essentially mesh but comes into widths of 36". Making it much easier to repair highly damaged surfaces.

You can buy it at Walltools.com or log onto dwt and send the OP a message from this thread http://www.drywalltalk.com/f3/hello-fibafuse-paperless-drywall-tape-1014/index5/ They sent me about 2000 feet of their normal Fiba Fuse as a sample and then 6' rolls of the Fiba Fuse tape in 36" and the rolls of Crack Stop in 36"

Man, I only got a free roll of the joint tape.

Of course I am only a painter.:D

We really like this stuff compared to paper tape.

Good communication with dealers and vendors can go a long ways. I found them to be very helpful and I am liking their products. The 36" joint tape and their crack stop are both worth looking into if you come across a badly damaged area. They also have the crack stop in narrower lengths.

Glad you have tried their paper. Do you do it by hand or with mechanical tools?

Only by hand. Small repairs and cracks.

I do stuff by hand too and every time I hit a bigger job I swear I am going to buy some mechanical tools.

If you don't have one already a 35.00 Homax Banjo will increase production if you do a room or so at a time or more.
