Flex Shot vs. Caulk Gun

Flex Shot: Strong Enough To Handle The Toughest Jobs!

Flex Shot makes caulking easy. It’ll bond, caulk, and seal just about everything and anything. That’s just one reason why Flex Shot is the top caulk in the nation.

Standard caulk guns come with a lot of hassles and maintenance. But Flex Shot is designed to bypass all of those nagging inconveniences.

Difference #1. The Search.

Finding the right caulk gun is no easy task. There are three main types of caulking guns: ratchet rod, smooth rod dripless, and electric. A ratchet rod caulking gun includes a ragged push rod that pushes the caulk out of the tube. The smooth rod dripless caulking gun uses a spring-loaded plat lock to push a pressure rod. With electric caulk guns, it’s just as it sounds. It runs on electric. Flex Shot requires nothing. All you have to do is pick out your favorite color. With it, you don’t have to waste researching different types of caulking guns.

Difference #2: Use/Setup.

Electric caulk guns are probably the easiest to use of caulk guns, but as mentioned, they require electricity. And as we know, technology always has to be replaced. Many handymen find ratchet rod caulking guns tricky to use since controlling the flow of the caulk can be difficult. The smooth rod dripless caulking guns are less fatiguing than the ratchet rod caulking gun. But here lies the issue… not all dripless caulk guns are actually “dripless.” Also with a caulking gun, you have to purchase a caulk cartridge that has to go inside of it. Not to mention, the cartridges have to be inserted correctly. Regardless of what type of caulk or caulk gun you use, you will have to practice in order to do a decent job.

With Flex Shot, you don’t have to worry about ANY of that. It’s like a caulk cartridge and a caulk gun all in one. It requires no electricity and no insert/removal instructions. All you have to do is snip the end of the nozzle to adjust for your bead size and apply pressure according to how quickly you want the bead to come out. It’s easy and doesn’t require a lot of practice to do a good job.

Difference #3: Upkeep.

Most importantly, caulk guns require maintenance. In order to keep the ratchet of a caulk gun lubricated, you have to use good-quality oil. Caulking guns also require regular inspection for damage. Beware of broken parts and cracks on your guns. The good thing about Flex Shot is that there’s no intense maintenance needed. Not to mention, the caulk used in standard caulking guns also doesn’t compare to Flex Shot. Over time, standard caulking will crack and peel. But Flex Shot lasts for the long haul.

[Flex Tip: You can use Flex Shot over and over again. When using standard caulk, any leftovers will harden and end up getting trashed (a complete waste). But with Flex Shot, just leave a small bead (approximately 1/8”) sticking out of the top of the nozzle. When you’re ready to reuse the can, pull out the bead of dried product and use Flex Shot again.]
