    Measure wall, arms out to side, thumb to thumb
    This product is my new buddy! Never knew tape could be so easy to apply! Possibly the cleanest I have ever been after taping two rooms! After I got a system down, I was amazed how fast I got it done!! Tip- worked best when I had joint compound was able to be poured into My Buddy!!

    I was so ready to give this product a bad review just because I have never been able to tape drywall so far with anything else but dang it worked I taped drywall for the very first time and it didn’t fall back off the wall. It’s also quick and easy to use. Since I was already prepared to give this product a bad review the only thing I can even say bad about it is it took to long to read the instructions they could have been written a little better. I’m not one that gives to many 5 star feed back but this one deserves it.

    I normally wait quite a while to write reviews but got excited after using this for the first time. I’m a DIYer and pretty inefficient/bad applying mud. I’ve only done a couple of small jobs, but I struggled with different techniques I watched on YouTube. I thought everything was good until 2-3 coats in (aka finished) and I started seeing bubbles…and more bubbles…and more bubbles that I had to cut out. I’m pleased to say I have zero bubbles when using this. Only “negative”…I couldn’t manage to cut the tape as smoothly with the knife as seen in the instructional videos. This made handling the strips kind of awkward. Nonetheless, considering alternate option, this is a great addition especially for a DIYer

    Inexpensive, time saving. Buy one with no regrets.
    The best priced easy to use time saving tool for applications of drywall tape out there. I’m a pro. This is great for me for kitchens, baths but you could also do bigger jobs with it also. Perhaps they could sell an additional hopper to fit on top of existing to increase mud capacity. Just my observation. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.

    Great Taping Tool

    This made our taping so much easier. We were novices at this and we are grateful for this tool. I would never attempt to tape drywall without it!

    Absolutely love this thing

    I’m working on finishing my 1,800 square foot basement and I bought this for the mudding & taping all the Sheetrock, this made my life easy and did exactly what I needed it to do.
    It puts just the right amount of joint compound on the tape and is really easy to clean, definitely worth every penny.
