    They look very intelligently thought out but really if you paper tape your joints then just use a fat boy 10" for first coat.

    for scrim and filler the maxx box 7" might be good but then the new quick boxes that are designed for filler need to be looked at first imo.

    Its just a fad , to sell more product. Truth be told you can box perfectly well with standard boxes. The only innovation that's been worth while recently is the flushers and compound tubes but they are nothing new. Premiere tools used to make a tube 20 years ago but they stopped making them, then came the can-am and shitter than ever tools.

    i take a proper corner finisher over a flusher, the flushers don't finish flat. If you feel the internal it's not flat. For rough cunts they are good as you can install the tape and finish it in one process.

    Yes mate, been using curved blades for 20 years and now form my own. mine are the best, far out perform anything on the market.

    Yes one coat on internals is shit but you can getaway with it, funny thing is if you know what your doing you can put them in, in a day and two coat in the same ish time to a better standard.

    I have a 12" maxbox and they are different,I wouldn't have anything else now,leaves a lovely joint and gear comes out easy, took a day or two to get used too.
