    Hi

    I know this has been discussed a few times but im stuck as to which to buy.

    Ive used the twist screw on type before but i thought id pickup one of these systems.

    Which is the best for quality if cost wasnt as issue.
    Which is the cheapest but still good.
    Which is the best overall value & quality?

    Here are the ones ive looked at. Too much choice.

    Any advice.....?

    perfect level master for me hands down.. the clips are far better than ramondi. Ive seen a few now though its not cheap I know im getting my moneys worth.. the PLM wedges have 1 2 3 5mm steps on them at the front of the wedge as well. Ill send you a small sample I have quite a few

    yep sure is.
    too many to choose from

    so its 1 vote for PLM from mark.

    i guess they all do the same job anyway and its more personal opinion and what you have used......?

    I use the mustangs, do like them, bought the pro kit but kept wedges (identical to PLM) and just bought 2000 clips unbranded off eBay for 40 and they are good!

    the lash system is a massive no no.. the way the clips sit is asking for poor tile setting.

    No I've also got them 2mm and 3mm so that it acts as spacer aswell! I do take a small trowel (Raimondi olive) along edge of tiles to clear excess adhesive away! Think that makes a big difference and keeps tiles and joints clean

    I've taken delivery today of the genesis levelling system, I've used it before and found it to be good, although I can't compare cos I haven't used any others
