Mesh tape vs Paper Tape .

What tape do pros prefer? Is there a big difference between mesh and paper?

Paper tape is the tried and true method of professional Drywallers. Paper tape is stronger in Compression, Cyclical bending (compression and expansion), and Shear strength. But mesh is still used in certain situations but never in angles!
