My mates apprentice has one looks decent like but I'm not keen on the handles. Each to their ownAnyone used ox they got um in merchant near me there flexys look ok but dunno for sure as I'm refina myself but I may give one a go I bought a ox steel one for a spare rendering trowel and find myself using it a lot tbf.
Because i knew they wouldn't get used again so might as well cash out...... I also buy most new trowels that come out and give them a bash....if i dont like them i sell them on..... Just had the ox version of the nela max for a week and wasn't overly impressed so sold it on for £2 less than I paid for it....Sounds a bit like that! Why would you not still keep the marshaltown set? Suspect!
