I could have sworn a few years ago FIRST identified the official manufacturer/brand of gaffer’s tape used in conjunction with the field carpet, but I can’t seem to find it. I need to buy some for an upcoming outreach effort; if we’re going to spend the money I’d like to get the same stuff that’s used in competition. Thanks…
The manufacturer is Pro Gaff.
The last time I recall FIRST calling out a manufacturer of tape was 2011 when the lines on the field were used for tracking to the targets.
I think it’s basically a “source it where you can” kind of thing. AndyMark sells red, blue, white, and black gaff tape. McMaster has a wide variety.
They specified the manufacturer of the alignment line tape here
