General rule of thumb is that the green polyester tape is better for straight lines and the blue vinyl better for tight curves. What I like about the polyester is that it doesn't stretch as the blue does. However for flames or anythiing with tight curves you need that stretch.

I don't try to do tight curves with 1/4" because it usually buckles, I use 1/8" for most tight curves.
