Poly Foam Plasterer's Derby
I used this float for floating concret around my pool very good for beginners and experience, you get a great finish, it gets better the more you wear it in not very good for plastering though !

Not worth the money
This is made out of moulded Polyurethane foam; this on its own is not an issue but when you get one that is not quite straight there is nothing that can be done about it. It looks like the Derby has warped during the manufacturing process, to the eye it looks straight but against a spirit level itâs not and tends to dig into the plaster at one end when pressure is placed on it during smoothing operations.
Other issues with this is cleaning, any lumps of plaster or grit tends to dig into it and scars the surface so next time itâs used it makes a nice pattern on the wall.
