I had no idea there were different depths. Can you give some examples of the most popular tapes of each?

Addition: China tapes are usually around 1mm, and I think Red Wolfs new tape is about 1mm also. Ace3 is more like 1.5mm.

I prefer a thicker tape on medium/deep concave decks and slimmer tape on mellow/flat (old school) decks.

I would never consider using a tape that was not <1mm

I think it looks so bad when the tape and the deck is almost equally thick.

1mm/.9 feels so much better and edges look cleaner on thinner tapes most of the time

I don't think i've used 1.5 mm tape, but once it wear in a bit, won't it get thinner?

I prefer the fat ones, like Ace3/Creamy Goo. It doesn't look that stupid when you cut/rasp the edges in a 45° angle.
There are even thinner versions than 1mm, like RWF tape (0,85mm) or B-low tape (0,5mm).

In that case I prefer the 1mm tapes simply cause I've never tried a 1.5mm tape.  I have heard good things about them though and would like to give it a try.

1.5 mm since I love squishing my tape. Also it tends to last a lot longer for me.

1mm tape for sure, although I've never really used much else
