It is a thicker product, so in some ways, easier to cut without tearing, but when doing fine details, could be harder to use.

The thing about BMF is that it's so thin that it conforms to almost any shape, thicker materials tend to pull up from tight bends and such because the material is thick enough to try to keep its flat shape and the adhesive isn't strong enough to hold it down.

Yeah, I use a lot of aluminum foil...just for budget sakes and I can tell you...anything but BMF is horrible in a tight bend.

It does have its uses but it is no replacement for BMF. Here are two examples of useful applications:
