To be fair I use plastic outside all the time but not for them being hard for other reasons, I can't be arsed explaining. Internal is a different case I think. Out of interest, if you hadn't been given them off your gaffer what would they cost each?

What are s**t?

Don't worry about the haters. These beads just tap in very nicely to all surfaces they are much more rigid than the the standard bead.

He probably cut his hand on them and just hates on them as a result

Not used hook on, and thought they were for board, can you use them on formed corners?

Trust me lodan these are beauties, they tap in on all surfaces they save time which is the most important thing for me that and the fact I no longer have trouble trying to fix beads onto solid walls especially old council homes that are brick.

Yeah I have used hook on before and they were good... great on plasterboard but I struggled on some harder surfaces...

They are made from the same metal as catnic ones, did not think they were any stronger though
