I actually like the tape much more than rubber bands especially on the smaller stock. Rubbers for the larger, heavier wood is a must to keep a good union.

I have grafted for years with minimal success bagging the scion. Turns out my problem and the key to success is maintaining the humidity level at a high level until the grafts have taken. I set up a greenhouse in the basement with lights, heat mats and a humidifier. I have had 95% success so far with this setup.
