Yep, we understand that. As we all know, the product ad will state the pros but never the cons. Like the shower perimeter being out of level when using the plastic sticks in the top mud bed. Sure, it will make the mud job easier but will take much longer to tile the walls if you want the bottom row of tiles level, which we all do. Or, the fact that the mud will be weaker along those sticks. For a pro, a trip back to replace even one tile is money out of our pocket. It might take 2-3 hours to replace 1 tile figuring driving time etc. So, you can see where we're coming from. We try not to take any more chances than we have to.

Edit; You can use just about anything in the preslope as long as it sticks to the floor and the surface is smooth. The top bed is a different story.
