I am getting around to buying into a tile leveling system but am unsure of which to purchase. I like the looks of the Raimondi System but still am not positive which one.

Recommendations please?

There's literally a handful of threads on that very subject already, one currently active. Tuscan is very nice but very expensive. RTC I have not used. Angus likes the Raimondi setup quite a bit and I trust his judgment. Lash is garbage and not worth the aggravation. I think that sums it up. If I were starting over I'd give Raimondi a try. I'm already invested in Tuscan myself.

That was all pre-rewards. Now I just feel dirty when posting.
That's just some of that Victorian era English upbringing left lingering behind. Be European. Or a politician. You'll find the guilt just washes away!

Im going with the Raimondi. After some research, those little "legs" that get compressed are like fingers- and they help grip the tile from lateral movement. It would appear that the others ones don't seem to have that as a design trait. Also those legs become spacers when used in the corner of 4 tiles.

I just bought the system, I will give it a whirl next week.

The MLT is the best ! .. I don't know why the link to upload pictures from my tablet doesn't work. But this leveling is perfect especially for large format tiles..
How is it better than RLS?

I'm no expert and have only used the RLS system, but from the picture it looks like the RLS wedges are bigger than those caps. And I believe the MTL bases are about $100 more for 2000 than the RLS clips. RLS is also a two piece system. Wouldn't that be better than straps, bases and caps?

Again, just asking. I have a way of typing my thoughts that make it sound accusatory or judgmental.
