    I've seen some metal nozzles that are attached to normal caulking nozzle. The videos of these things look too good to be true .
    Has anyone tried them?
    Thanks.

    You get the same sort of things with some "sausage guns" (caulking guns designed to use bagged sealants and adhesives)

    There is no advantage over plastic ones.

    I have some but not tried yet. Normally use the masking and corner rubber tool. For £4 from China its was worth a punt on metal nozzles

    Probably more useful are the adjustable angle plastic nozzles which are favoured by some trade decos and kitchen fitters. At least they can be angle cut give a more convenient nozzle shape or to allow a thicker bead to be produced

    Thanks guys, I'm always trying to up my game, but it's sometimes hard to distinguish between the tat and the game changers.

    Can't think of a reason to use metal other than may last longer dragging over masonry .
    The immediate disadvantage would they may scratch or mark more delicate surfaces .
