Came across these, are they cheaper than you can buy? Are they any good?
The flex, is it a heavy gauge metal, or that thin aluminum crap (if you happen to know)

All bags weigh 8.1kg
Main focus is on the readymix although got some stonking prices on the AP Lite compond - will send them through to you Brian - Register on the site to view complete price range for quantity ordering etc

411410It's French made with a gyproc sticker on the front. Seems a bit dodge to me.

Also had some chinese fiba tape, rubbibsh. But did find a chinese bug wrapped up in it.

Goodmanatee - that's one of those chinese fiba tapeworms ! lol
The flex is genuine - but placo stuff comes from france part of the saint gobain group - im guessing they are desperate now due to their f up with the Chinese flex saga - we don't touch the bg flex now due to inconsistency.
