Surely if its marshalltown its got to be better than the other flexy trowels?

No trowel I've ever owned or used has compared to a marshalltown

Or just get one of these at half the price. I love all my MT trowels but I think they are a bit behind the times with this lol

There's an empty desk at MT, in the top drawer are two trowels.......one is the Refina s*p*r*lex, the other is a Nela.........there is a hand written note there.....it says "had a good look at both of these boss, they seem too flexy and flimsy....I know my onions....these will never catch on..no action required".....

i have had a marshalltown premier super flex for a couple of years now.
there is the premier with a wooden handle and the basic with the standard soft grip handle. there is a long tang and a short tang version of both trowels. the long tang has less flex then the short tang type.
the cheapest place to purchase these trowels is ebay . com [usa] or ebay canada. about £30 for the 13 inch version.

I think nela got this particular niche in the market sewn up at the moment. Anyone noticed the nela premium carbon listed on the website? I'm looking forward to hearing the reviews on that

Yeah I've got trowels in the garage that don't get used, just put my Refina super flex in the garage aswell. I'm using one trowel for everything at the moment skimming and rendering.

0.3mm will make it superflexy. The mediflex seems to be catching on now as an all round flexi so maybe marshalltown are lagging behind here.

These new MT's are a nice lookin trowel though. They're using rivets too! Aren't all the others using sticky stuff? There would definitely be no bonding issues with it.

They are stuck on like the rest mate, it's exactly same as nela flex with marshalltown handle
