    Default Tapes and Flex


    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)

    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

    487.jpg486.jpgIt'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.
