Hi everyone just thought id post my opinion about my new 80cm eze spat.Used it saturady and today .first job was a dinning room re-skim over old plaster walls with a new boarded ceiling . The standard blade that comes with the spat i found a little to stiff for multi it seemed to dig in the corners a fair bit and leave lines im sure after a bit more experimenting amd playing about you could probally learn to use it on multi fine , maybe simply leaving it to firm up a bit more than you normally would may stop it digging in as much or sanding the corners down a bit.for me thow il probally jist use it backing coats etc, so amyway i swapped it for the flexi blade and that blade worked a treat . Its very flexible but smooths and levels the plaster really well, also didnt leave any lines at all just glides over the plaster leaving it nice and smooth with not much effort at all, i found the spat nice to hold and using both hands found it easy to keep a nice even pressure along the wall . I also orderd the pole attachment and that really does make a ceiling loads less labour intensive , the only problem for me was the 2 little allen key bolts for the pole attachment. Not a major problem but could become a bit of pain if doing a wall and ceilig at the same time and having to keep the allen key in your pocket it will defo get lost at some point. i think if they could be changed for the sort of self tighning bolt were the end of the bolt has a sort of griped area so u can tighten them with just your fingers.think that would be better .i didnt finish with the spat i stuck to my plazzie trowel (refina) and was well happy with the end result, the spat defo made the job a lot easier with less effort, didnt really save much time but was a lot more relaxed with plenty of time to clean buckets tools etc, this was my method 1st coat flatten with spat ,2nd coat flatten with spat, leave to firm 1 more pass with the spat and 2 plazie trowels came out really nice. the second job i used it on was a small bathroom 3 walls (plasterboard) and a ceiling (stippled artex) tried a differnt method this time 1st coat flatten with speedskim ,2nd coat flatten with speedskim , 1 dry spat ,1 wet spat and a final dry spat once it had firmed a fair bit , again came out really nice will go back and have a look at the finish when its dry as i didnt use the plazie this time and i do like the finish a plazie gives so will see if there is a differnce, couldnt use it on the ceiling cos there was 8 downlights getting in the way . Iv never used one of the refina spats so cant compare it to that but the refina price tag did allways put me off ,the eze spat is cheaper and has replacable blades so better value for money, Oh one more thing about the blades i think the blade covers that come with them should defo cover the full lenght of the blade like the refina plazieflex ones .the flexi blade is very thin and will probally nick very easily so protecting the full lenght is a must in my opinion . Bottom line well happy with my purchase will try a few more techniques and see how the finish is in the bathroom in a couple of days. Cheers ryan for sorting my order . It arrived next day and very well packed took bleeding ages to get it all open .great service .
