What brand of template tape?

So I stopped at my local WoodCraft store to grab a roll of template tape, today.
I think it was Spectape, but it was 1" x 36 yard roll for $35, the 2" was $54.
IMO it seems a tad pricey for tape, although, it'll prolly last me years.
If it's the bees knees, then it is what it is, I'll grit my teeth and grab a roll.
When I got home I poked around on Amazon and found plenty of crappy off brand stuff with lots of one star reviews primarily because of excess residue after removal.
They did have some Spectape, and the pricing was a little cheaper, but still pricey.
Home Depot has several name brand options from Gorilla, Scotch, and 3M, but they're listed as permanent adhesion.
So what are you guys using?

i use double sided banner tape. Its about $23 for a roll. Used to be $12
Grimco website right? Bookmarked! Thanks!

This stuff seemed decent when I used it
That is actually one of the brands I looked at as a possibility, thou the thicker 1" version. I really wanted to have some thin stuff as well as the thicker width stuff.

I've been watching quite a few of Mark's CAF vids on Youtube, as of late, and I've been itching to try some new things.
So I bought a new Milwaukee M18 Fuel cordless router with plunge base, and I'm trying to think up some fun practice projects.:)
Now I can leave my big bulky Craftsman router in the table! Yay!

Plus, one of the CNC channels I watch uses it on certain types of parts, and I'd like to have some in my box at work, if the opportunity presents itself.
Thanks for the responses! I ended up going with the XFasten that @Turb0Yoda linked.
I ordered a 1/4" x 20 yard 8 pack for $10.49 and a 3/4" x 20 yard for $12.99. They should be here Thursday, with free Prime delivery.
If it's not below freezing this weekend, I'll try to get out to the garage and get a few cuts in, for an update.
On a side note, this sexy beast showed up at my door, last week!
Really love the feel and build quality!
