Strait Flex Tuff Tape

Anyone ever use Strait Flex Tuff Tape?

I'm going to try it on some inside corners that had slight cracking and was wondering if anyone used the Tuff Tape and what mud they used.

I would like to use Easy Sand 45 but the makers of Tuff Tape suggest General Purpose since that's the only thing they've tested their product with.

I used it once on the peak of a cathedral ceiling. Worked fine. I see no reason why the 45 wouldn't work. In fact that's probably what I used and I would think it would work better since I doubt that all purpose mud would dry very fast underneath it. You generally do your final skim coating with all purpose.

Thanks for the info.

I went with 45 and the Tuff tape bedded in nice and was able to put a skim coat on right away as per the instructions. Applied a 2nd coat of Plus 3 and I was done. Well kind of, a pro would have been done, I had a little touch up to do. I try to get it as good as possible since I hate sanding, well the sanding dust.

Corners turned out nice now time will tell how Tuff tape and 45 holds up.

I also discovered I can mud an inside corner that is to my right side (right handed) pretty darn good but not as good when it is to my left and I have to work across my body. I'm sure it's an experience thing and I'll be better when I'm done.

I often do inside corners one side at a time. Once one side is dry, do the other side.

That's what I do too. Using the 45 speeds up the process.
