I purchased the pink ATG gun and so far I'm in love! For the price, it beats any other gun out there. It has twice the amount of adhesive I have seen in other models (glue glider pro) so it is definitely worth the investment since the rolls will go twice as far. I shopped around and was thrilled when I found it on overstock.com- lowest price!! The only downside I realized right away is that it is not so user friendly for a left-hander. The tape loads to the left side of the roller, which allows for precise application when you hold it in your right hand. It lets you apply adhesive right to the edge of your paper with nice control. When I hold it left handed, I can't see where I'm going, so I might as well just shut my eyes and see what happens. I don't know if there is another way to wind the tape, I'm guessing no. It's a little bulky, but not an issue since the applicator end is smaller and I am thrilled that I don't have to replace the cartridge constantly. I still give it 5 stars for the price and value, the fun color (YAY pink!), and the ease of use. After a month, the adhesive has not globbed up or given me much trouble at all. I have better luck with the adhesive if I apply it to my paper on top of a mat or cardboard surface instead of a hard surface since it is pressure sensitive. Something that "gives" a little seems to help the adhesive release off the backing (just a tip).
This tape dispenser gives you the most bang for your buck-- it holds much more adhesive than the smaller disposable tape runners. Threading the tape is a little confusing the first time, but not too difficult to be a deterrent. I rated this good rather than excellent because, unlike the dot tape runners, this tape tends to pull off a bit stringy. Once you get the hang of it, you can minimize that, though. I purchased this item on Overstock because the price + shipping beat everyone else; however, shipping took more than a week, which was frustrating.
