just ordered the Nela s*p*r*lex trowel I've been using the marshaltown for last 13 years so what's expected from this trowel? When do you use it ? Is it the last rub
Or just before then . Hope it's a decent trowel

There is a lot said they are only good for the last trowel bla bla etc etc but if timed right you can use it early and I have done at times with some great results much like people use the eze spat from start to finish and that is more flexible than the sf. The reason people struggle is there is far less margin for error than with a mt trowel, if you do try to get on it early and you catch it slightly late then this is where the problems occur, I find this method is ok for smaller sets when you have pleanty of time.also I think the newer sf has helped in this. On larger sets I use it for the last two trowels now and if ever the finish starts to catch me out il only use it for the last trowel. Persevere and you will find your own method to suit your style of plastering.

A great trowel in the right hands.I think they can make a good plasterers life a lot easier but will not do anything for chancers,which is great!.You won't be long getting used to it.Just remember they are very delicate,let one drop and say goodbye to it.

My mate bought one last week and I did some jointing with it. Was really impressed with it. Going to get myself one.
 
the best thing to do is just use it... you will ssus it out :D

Some flatten in with it... some only do the final wipe... its all down to you and how you work :)

You will hate it at first............ then grow to love it :D

I got the 16" and midget and they are cracking but remember to only use them when your flattening in, I usually throw it on with my marshal town and then do my first flatten once that is done I jump on the s*p*r*lex. you get a great finish and less mess I have found because you need less water.
10/10 here
