It works!
Tip

He uses some special comb but I found a regular comb with fine and coarse teeth works, just use the coarse tines. I scribe a shallow cut into the film with a sharp knife tip, just thru the film. Then use the comb to separate the film at the cut line. Don't carry the cut all the way across, and then you can peel both sides of the cut.

Good tip, thanks. Doesn't work for label tape but my last purchase has length wise split backing and very easy to remove. All tape should be made this way.

I agree 100% and do not understand why they all do not make the tape that way

I use my fine tip tweezers that are generally dedicated for SMD soldering. This bald guy doesn't own a comb
