Masking for a vinyl top?

Tamiya has a nice clean smooth edge and while it lays down without allowing any bleeding under it is also an easy release tape.
Using a good tape like Tamiya means you've always got a clean straight edge for straight lines or curves.
Then you can always fill in behind it with 3M Green or even use baggies to finish masking.

3M works just the same and is cheaper by far than the Tamiya.
If 3m satisfy's you that's great but 3M can have a very ragged edge and Tamiya is a clean smooth almost vinyl like tape.
How much cheaper can one tape be than another. I'm not going to haggle over 50 cents once I've laid down a few layers of paint.
When I'm building something I don't look necessarily for the cheapest product but the best.
Once you buy the Tamiya dispensors you need only order the refill rolls. Very inexpensive.
Either way Tamiya is not expensive.
