They are faster than you harry and that's not a argument starter mate....I'm newish and work with @Vincey nown and again and watch him stroll through sets that would be hard work for me.....there's no magic tool just repetition and a lot of years slowley making you more efficient.....usain bolt wasn't his fastest at 18....years and years made him more efficient...I find speedakim helps but doesn't make me faster just makes it easier

Use it once when wet to get your basic angle then once later on...if drags give it a bit if water....I don't use one to be honest

Sounds like your using the twitch too early, I lay on and flatten with Trowell and get any wet corners best I can then use twitch on my last wipe/polishing trowel. To be honest I don't use it that often I can get them pretty good with trowel alone

That's with a labourer unless it's a massive celing il do that in morning then 2/3 walls in an afternoon, depends on job some days might do 2 walls then prep for next day it's different every job. Sheeting up pvaing boarding whatever all takes time, leave the lad cleaning out at the of day and just leave me with a bucket of clean water and my finishing trowell
