I don't know. Let's see what it costs. It looks expensive to me- all those specialty caps...can the guys that bought the TLS system use the same guns?

Been busy, Chad. But now that you and Cx mention it, I do recall some saying something about something. Brain fart.

I donate the tls straps to my doctor to use for tongue depressors.

Or Starbucks could use them for coffee stirrers.

A little thinset residue never hurt anybody.

Let me get this straight, Mick sold the TLS to Pearl and then designed a different one similar to the TLS but now better with more reusable parts and more guns? Will Pearl buy this one too

Personally I have no need for a new system right now when the old one works just fine. But I can see the excitement in the air and guys wanting to get their hands on it to try.

I did not sold Tuscan as i still own stock in the company. Jon, you are getting a box on Tuesday and so he is Gueuze. Jon, and i tought you would be happy about it. Pearl will not be involved in the distribution of this product as now. In the next few days will announce where this product will be available at. Of course stores that support this site will have acces to if they want to carry it.

Mick.

Lol@kevin! Was trying to think of where I heard that.
All kidding aside I'm lookin forward to trying this.
That strap gun looks kinda familiar. Would the straps self destruct if I were to tighten them with something I already have?

We have no detonators within the straps; you should have No Worries Obie.
