    What r u putting on?
    What r u using 2 put filler on the corners?
    What roller u using? Not that should make much dif as they r all designed to push the mud out from behind the bead!

    I use the same one, I just muck up the corner push on the bead then roll, no need to scrape off the excess just coat it up.

    if ur using standard flex tape ie wondertex arrow ect best use a tape tech roller that made for that type of flex. other rollers tend to be for no coat staitflex type of bead. its super simple just put a inch wide 2-5 mm thick wipe of filler use a 5-6 inch knife put flex tape on pinch very slightly and maker sure its on square and top corners meet up and are flush.. then roll and coat up. trowle for two coat or 6 inch knife if its first of three. u want ur filler not super thick esle will give issues. if u find it hard...i recommend the job center or just knife in old skool its quicker if ur skilled big IF

    As Tom said but I do like my roller if the boarding it good, as for quicker it might be by traditional method but the roller is deffo easier if you have the old arthritis in your thumbs like me. Where is the nearest job centre

    Flex tape, Then sure as a bear chit's in the woods I would not use no roller!
    Tried and tested and no way!
    Paper face beads,Trim-Tex beads then that's a dif story!
    I'm still trying to figure out if it's flex or what that ur putting on with a sheetrock bead roller!!

    umm dont really understand why you think the tape tech roller its shit. i dont need to UP MY GAME ffs. i get a well filled out square angle from using flex tape. trim tex i would consider for the extra strength on up rights but not for the 2 2m i get on site. i live in a house with flex tape on all outside angles there is no problem. its super simple flex and roller like i said i wipe in by hand at the mo. dont get a problem... happy sad i just take the simple route that keeps me sane.

    No mate I just keep it in a bucket of water and after each use just give it a quick spin, you know like rolling a sausage between your palms. I also made a smaller handle for mine which is a lot easier for windows ect.
