I have used black electrical tape for years, with no problems whatsoever. But I am in 
Nova Scotia, zone 5a, so we probably have less concern re. heat.   No problems 
with being too tight at the time of grafting, but will "indent" the stock if left 
indefinitely.  I graft in the Spring, and then slit the tape (just a single vertical cut 
through the tape, leaving the tape in place) in July or August.  The tape eventually 
falls off, but if you try to peel it off at the time, it may pull the bark off with it.
