What make drip do you use?

I bought a similarly priced knock off of t-tape this season from our 
professional produce farming supplier. Can't remember the name. Boy, 
was it crap. We had seams open on us over and over again and it 
plugged very early. Never had this with t-tape or the Israeli stuff.

Thanks Allan in WV
