Glad your getting on with the EZE Spat mate. We now have plastic blades as well... Available in stiff or flexible. Price will go online soon
 
Am I only the only one that doesnt see the point.... A spat just seems to move the pressures of holding a trowel to even harder place... I have an 18 inch trowel which I like to use and its comfortable to use so whats the point of a spat....

Excuse my ignorance I am just interested as I have never really used one...lol

Surely if they in your house Danny then you should have got a free one ;)
 
Lol

I am just interested as when i used one it seemed awkward :)

Undoubtedly they are a popular tool so I see that there is demand for them just curious of the way you hold it effects anything or if it makes your hand ache :)

Danny!!! Haha, it's all good mate, we understand people may not get on with them, most seem to love them. I'm sure once you use it a bit and get a real feel for it you will love it. I'm confident with that!

Flynny, if your not going to use it send it back to me and I can give it to someone else off the forum who wants to try it :RpS_thumbup:

Danny stop worrying about things that don't concern you, leave tool discussions to the plasterers.
You're time would be better spent talking about business strategies with Mr Clamp:RpS_biggrin:

I use the speedskim for flattening in the first coat, then lay the second on, i also use the speed skim on this, when it pulls in then I start to use the spat, works great for me...

Are you sure these smooth plastic blades will work Ryan as we were led to believe the ribbed pattern on the cavi.. I mean Speedskim were what makes it such an outstanding coat stand.

Hi Andy, we have some guys using them at the moment and they like them. As for being better or worse than the Speedskim it's not for me to say, it's down to you guys at the end of the day. We have all options available for everyone
