I've seen these large trowels for flooring on most tiling tool sites, does anyone use one? Do they make trowelling faster and more consistent ?

I’ve used a raimondi trowel which is nearly twice as long as a standard trowel to comb adhesive on the back of a large format tile and found it quicker.

That's a whopper! Think I'll give one a try. The u notch trowels give great coverage

I like longer trowels mostly use the Marshalltown longer ones , they are in between the regular size and the larger ones like the raimondi pictured above

Lightweight adhesive and a standard size trowel = faster than a mahooooisive giant trowel and sandy adhesive.

Big trowels are like these imo: ;)

Got to have arms like Rocky to use them ;)
I'm a seven stone weakling , make your mix correct and it's not and issue also if you hold your trowel between your thumb and index finger and put your other three finger tips on the trowel blade it's much less pressure on your grip
