    Sheetrock flex has had its problems but all seems ok now and price isnt too bad - If you can stretch to using paper faced sheetrock or beadex beads you never have an issue as you do with flex on a roll !
    see sheetrock pricing here http://www.tapingandjointing.com/for...list-Sept-2012
    as low as 7.20 for sheetrock flex

    Really not liking the USG flex at the moment. Belmoreboy you say they are over their problems but do you think this is old stock I'm buying because anything over 1m comes out curved

    hi - if you both have any tape left could you let me know the name on the edge of the box and maybe a date if there is one on the full box of (10) as there may still be some supect stock in circulation. We havnt seen any issues with new stock for over 4 months now as you say it was only the fist metre or so of each box where the tape was like a banana as seemed to be too tight on the paper.
    Never had issues with it not sticking or raising up because of this though.

    It bends from the start to the end of the roll mate.Will start writing down the dates etc.....Been buying it from you.It goes on ok and you can bed it in fine,you just got to be careful with it thats all.
