    I've not used weber set spf for a couple of years, but ctd recently opened in Preston (finally!) so all giddy with excitement I opened my account and went and bought half a dozen bags.
    Now I really wish I hadn't! It's terrible to use. Sure, it sticks really well. But it's stringy and claggy. Open time is poor and for a slow set, it's going off in the bucket in little over an hour (and it's only about ten degrees c in here).
    Maybe I've just been spoilt using tilemaster lightweight, kerakoll bio gel etc.
    Anyone else use it and like it?!

    Have you tried the Weber set plus, better to use and cheaper than the SPF...

    I love Weber and hate tile master.
    Ask 10 tilers what's the best adhesive and you will probably get 10 different answers.. :)

    set plus comes in rapid and slow set. its polymer modified enough fo porcs on walls and set plus slow set is all i use for walls.
    SPF comes in rapid and slow set and that is extra flex for overboarded wooden floors - though I tend to use their trade s1 if I need a rapid

    I only use Weber, either set plus or SPF. Never had any problems. I'm using SPF this week and some mixes have been sat in the tub for 2-3 hours without going off

    As long as the stuff works I'm driven by price and availability. CDT is 5 mins from my house so it's Weber for me and the points really add up too.
