I use rope on wood bindings too for the reasons Bruce stated. Well actually I use both. I use tape first to hold it in place then I rope the hell out of it and yes you will break out into a sweat doing it. I have used tape with string filaments in it but found that is still no where near as strong as the clamping strength as rope. I have always been one to believe that clamping pressure is important when making any joint on a guitar.

In any case though if you have wood bindings that don't fit perfectly they will when you rope them up.
