I've "borrowed" a 1200 speed skim, a refina spatula and refina plaziflex trowel from work and had a mess about this week, gotta say I'm still experimenting with timings etc, but I'm impressed with all 3, when used in conjunction with each other they produce great finishes with little effort. Great for putting on the meters but for me it's all about saving those joints!

I cant push enough pressure on the blade to finish properly. Also had them falling apart on me

I would say yes @jesssop

The ergonomics doesn't suite the way in which I use a spatula to finish 32" refina is the biggest ive had success with. I have a 40" but only use that on ceilings with pre-mixed.


The 600 speedskim's I have to test have both broken. One I cracked the blade in the centre some how. Maybe in transport but im quite anal about protecting the blades on my spats. The other one the metal insert has come away from plastic.

Ive kept quite about them for quite some time trying to preserver with the 1200 hoping it would break in. However I have reverted back to the s*p*r*lex spat on many occasions


Even though I love my refina spat I still only use it on large areas so a smaller trowel with a flexible blade seems the way forward for average hits.

Still love the speedskim plastics though for flattening with :RpS_thumbup:

i would have thought a plazzy finishing blade would have been an easier and better way forward for this tool?

You don't have the control over the blade the same way you do a with a plazzie trowel. You can finish on to beads with a plastic trowel you just use less pressure.

Plus there is a nasty habit of the blades getting small nicks which doesn't matter when just flattening. In a plastic you see and address a nick quickly and simply. I have finished with brand new speedskims however they tend to lose there crisp edge quickly.
