The best tape is 3m 300LSE. I use red tape too as its more cost effective, but 300LSE is tape equivalent of amtech 559.

Ive never tested that video claim myself, but ive also never had a seating issue with 300LSE. Once its down it stays down, even when you make a mistake and wish it would come back off. *it will come back up, but not without a fight.
