    There were a couple for sale on here but i believe they have stopped producing them. How much for the Flottrunner?

    I still have my Monster Mesh Taper sitting in the garage (might stick it on ebay and see what happens)

    The only problem with the Monster Mesher and this new Flottrunner will be the same thing...if you use cheap scrim it will peel off from the edges and clog it up!

    It works great. We all think the same . But serious you can't do it faster manuelly. And don't use cheap scrim

    Looks a lot less complicated mechanically than the Monster Mesh, which was good when it worked, but most of the time just jammed.

    new house building sites are all mesh tape i would imagine, such is the demand for speed. (not the drug, dutch drywaller)
    Guys doing individual houses, private builds, commercial jobs etc may prefer the paper tape but in the main its mesh all the way over here
    USA and Canada tend to dismiss mesh tape, they are real drywall snobs over there!
