i paper tape everything then throw the beads on and coat the butts and beads with hot mud on my first day. second day i did everything with it. for my first coat on the flat it does such a nice job. i have been trying really hard to eliminate a curve trowel from my system over the last 2 years. the flex of the Nela really helped hide most of the high shoulders on the first pass.

I do'nt do any plaster work except skimming an entire wall. but i would gladly give away my old wore in Marshalltown trowels after using these bad boys.

I got a Nela superlfex trowel. 14 x 4.3 I believe it is. This trowel is great for building out butt joints or coating terrible joints. It's hard to make a tight skim with this trowel but its excellent for coating. I'm going to try to get another Nela trowel but not super flex. Is 4.75 the only width they come in?

eazyrizla,

A.Richard no longer has a 14" x 14" Hawk, there largest is a 13" x 13".

May I recommend the Kraft Pro-Form Hawk. Its 14" x 14" with a hollow handle so you can hang it on your baker.

Follow the link below for more details

thanks, Brad
