I have used paper tape for many years and recently the micro-mesh for butt joints in drywall. Paper tape you have to feather out pretty far. Micro-mesh is very thin and works nicely. Now Fibafuse is my choice when I want a seamless butt joints in my drywall installations. It's permeable so the compound passes through which makes a permanent bond. You'll be satisfied!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MP Good stuff
Very easy to use and bonds better than paper. I did still use paper on corners just because the stiffness was easier to work with on long runs. Make sure to wear gloves with the Fibafuse. The particles will get in your hands. I laid the mud then embedded the Fibafuse by hand before using the taping knife. Worked out well.

FibaFuse is going to revolutionize drywall finishing also does not slip and slide around like paper when applying it.
This is superior to paper or mesh..

As long as you don't mind your face itching a little bit from the fiberglass it's definitely the best drywall tape I have ever used it somewhat disappears as soon as you put mud over it with less total coats to cover and no fish mouth's

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Really Great Product
New products for sheetrock hanging come out pretty regularly: new corner bead, patch material, sanding pads, etc., but this is the first thing that will really change the way rock goes up. When I first got this tape I was afraid it would be a hassle to cut and use, but it tears just like paper and goes on really easily. It sort of looks like thin fiberglass material, but very thin, almost transparent. It sticks well to compound and is easy to cover and later sand. It embeds completely and is so light the job will go a little faster.
Only tips I would have is that I wouldn't use it to cover large gaps (over 1/4") or holes because unlike paper or patch material it doesn't have much weight itself and unless there's compound underneath, the gap will be very soft and even see-through. Also when using a stiff trowel be careful not to press to hard because this tape can rip and tear. But I'm switching to this stuff from now on.

Easy to use works like a champ by far my favorite drywall tape to use. It will make your face itch because of the fiberglass but I still prefer this over any other tape.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by snorkel Superior to paper tape
This is superior to paper or mesh and makes the flatest butt joints.
This stuff is also better for a DIY job as there is no way this will ever delaminate like paper can
if you squeeze out to much compound.
I found out about this as I was doing the last room in my basement finishing project and was able to use it on the corners and was I impressed. What I did was use a big paint brush and painted on all purpose joint compound in the corners, then applied the fibafuse, then painted on more JC and then smoothed that with a knife. I did all the corners in about 30 minutes and they turned out great.
The other nice thing is this product is not affected at all by moisture like paper. if paper tape gets exposed and sanded it gets all fuzzy and you have to recoat and then it absorbs primer and paint oddly. This stuff can be sanded and it remains pretty smooth where primer will cover with no problem and won't cause weird absorbtion issues like paper.
I hired out the big rec room area in my basement and I wish I would have insisted they use this on the ceiling instead of paper tape.
This stuff also does not slip and slide around like paper when applying it.
The only con is you have to be a bit careful when smoothing the corners for the first coat as the metal kniife can cut the inside corner, but if that happens you simply cut a small piece to cover the cut and it fuses right in, outstanding.
oh and since it's a woven fiberglass the JC goes through it and it dries much much faster.

I will never use anything else again. It gives a much cleaner finish than paper and mesh. Easier to work with as well. It also holds a joint a 1000 times better.
