Buddy tape from Behl is better.  I have use both and buddy tape is superior in quantity and one roll usually last me for the year.  Where as parafilm it does not last as long and it will dry up and look like plastic and wonít stick together.

well, I talk to the parafilm company and they charge $145 for 9 boxes.  Min order is 108boxes. That comes out to Come out to about $13/box + shipping.

Amazon is has it for $28/box.  That's about $15 saving per box, well you need to deduct shipping. Still very cheap , but need to get the volume.

How much grafting will you really do?  6 rolls is enough to start a farm.  Ask me how I know.

I agree with bush2beach, they both have pros and cons.  For the money, parafilm is better IMO.  Especially if you use a lot of tape.  Buddy is a better tape but it costs a fortune and will girdle your grafts if you put many layers on the union and dont remove it.  I actually use 3 different tapes now when grafting.  Single layer of buddy on the scion, wrap the union in parafilm, then wrap union/parafilm in texas flagging tape extra tight.

good strategy with multilayer taping Spaugh.
2yrs ago, I got a box with 6rolls of the paradigms tapes and I went crazy with it.  Been using for apple and mango and practicing with cherimoya. 

Now, I am out of it.

I like Parafilm also. I just bought 2 rolls for $14.50 from Ebay. Those 2 rolls will last for me at least a year.

tommyng,

the huge volume has better price.
$13/box ( 6 roles :1inc) = $2/roles

issue is that we need to buy 108 boxes.  I can keep 2-3boxes myself. 

You can use parafilm to wrap you fingers to prevent  guitar blister too.

with that price, you can get an entire box of 6 rolls.

I like Parafilm also. I just bought 2 rolls for $14.50 from Ebay. Those 2 rolls will last for me at least a year.

Iíll take a box. Let me ask some of the group on fb to see if they want to get any.  Maybe this will help drive up the 108 number.

All those boxes are going to require postage.  What's the price going to be with postage?

a member ping me for 12boxe , 5boxes for myself,  total so far 19boxes.    89  more to go.

In regards for shipping.  Here is the plan for saving cost on shipping.

For Sf Bay Area, no shipping , so it will be $13/box .  You can pick up or I can try to drop off.   on Ebay , $33/box.  that's $20 saving per box. 

For other locations, if people are in the close proximity - we can try to ship in a Fedex box to one location( medium box $15.05) for people to pickup.  Or directly to individual,  shipping is about $7-8.    So, still pretty good price. The more you buy, the more you save.

 I ran out of it recently, and order .5 inch from eBay, it sucks.  quality wasn't that great.  But the one I have 6rolls inch from  two years ago,  still stick for me, I really like it a lot since it automatically crack and split itself when the scion grows.  I have pretty good success rate with it.  I use it for apple, mango, cherimoya.  Once I get more orders, I will go crazy with the citrus.

Since you're in LA, do you guys think you can work something out with tqnguyen? He got an order for 80boxes.  Maybe this will help you reduce the shipping if you guys are in close proximity.  If that doesn't work out, I 'll can split my reserve.

Good deal for a box thru our group order.  The price and payment info is up on the original post.
