This adhesive is one of my favorites. Although it did take me a few tries to get used to using it, I quickly began to prefer this adhesive over photo corners. It's easy to use and doesn't get stringy when you pull away from adhering it. The adhesive is strong and secures your projects well. It's well priced and easy to refill as well.

So far a great value because most adhesives like this only offer 24-49 feet. It is easy to use, only time will tell the rest, I usually have trouble with the units lasting, most times the adhesives stick to the unit or the line of adhesive breaks jamming the unit.
I've been a Tombow product fan for years, but this new 82 foot long product is making me rethink my loyalty. I don't know what happened since it's supposed to be the same product, but this new extra long roller does not work properly. Not only does it keep skipping long lengths at a time, but gets gummed up too. I'm also thinking it's not as strong of an adhesive as the shorter one.

I purchased this applicator thinking that the design of the handle would make it easy to use, plus I have used the Mono Adhesive before and thought I would try this new one...well, the handle is about the "easiest" thing about this!
I cannot even begin to tell you how many times the adhesive does not dispense. I don't know if there is "skipping" of adhesive on the roll, or what the problem is, but more often than not, I am hand-rolling the adhesive to a place that I can make contact with my project...NOT what you want to be spending your time doing!
I am going to use up what I purchased and never use it again!
I was excited about the idea of having 82 feet of mono on a single roll. It is a great idea because it cuts down on having to stop and to change to a new roll which happens a lot during big projects. Unfortunately this glue was not what I had hoped for.
There were large areas with just a ribbon and no glue at all. When I did finally get it working again, the adhesive was much weaker than regular mono rolls and my applicator actually broke at one time when I had to take it apart to try to fix the roll. I will not be purchasing this again but I - am - still a fan of regular mono rollers.
After being involved with scrapbooking for 2 years, and trying many different adhesives, I finally found my FAVORITE!!!
I LOVE that it is 82 feet long, so I don't have to stop and refill very often. It also has a sturdy design that fits great in my hand. :)
