Nela s*p*r*lex trowel worth buying ????

#1
Thinking of buying the nela s*p*r*lex gold edition trowel (not sure what the golds for)... anyone got one ?

I had to the MT flexi trowel but f**k*d it before xmas. I've heard good reviews about the nela so thinking of trying it.

Any advice appreciated

Get the Nela cracking trowel but you do have to take care of it especially around plugs as it can bend easily if you hit them hard, I have not used the ox but have heard good things about them so it is your choice.

Never tried any of the others but the ox ultraflex is a great trowel .

I’ve got one
I find it more of a pain in the ass remembering I’ve got it, makes a great floor scraper though

Yeah all time . Quick rub with plastic at end for cosmetic reasons
You mean you rub it with plastic float and sand to clean it up ? Used to have to do that at college . Then wipe with oil at end of day

Cheers. Only ever see them online. Need a gd shop to go and see them
To be honest I rarely use mine . In my opinion they are only good for making walls shine which is not what you really supposed to do . Matt and flat is the way

Super trowels! I just can’t watch them getting destroyed by the skim! God knows what’s in it. No other product I came across is turning them so s**t. Decided to keep them only, mostly :rolleyes:, for externals this year. See how it goes.

I would always say just buy it and if you dont like it then there is always ebay... trowels are one of the cheapest things to buy that can make you ££££'s so I always think it is worth a punt
