Paid for these yesterday at 1:30pm, they arrived in GR at my office at 11:00am. Everything looks great, can't wait to get them set and start pouring.

Besides getting it prepared this product worked awesome..would recommend to others..if you vibrate till you can't vibrant no more you will have hardly no air bubbles

Works as advertised. BUT 3 or 4 pieces were already separated at one end when pulling them out of the box. I was sent (1) replacement piece which gave me enough to finish which was nice.
When notching the corners, dont use snips or something similar to cut the notches out because the plastic will crack and or shatter unevenly causing you to have to re-cut the entire end....if you already have it cut to the exact length...the entire piece is ruined. So be careful with that. I would suggest cutting it with a Dremel or something similar.

I built an outdoor grill table for two Big Green Eggs, and decided to pour a concrete top for the table. It's about 33 inches by 83 inches.
I used the half bull nose forms, and they were exactly what I expected after reading information on the website. They are heavy weight plastic, the corners are easily taped together (but use plenty of tape), they're easy to cut using a power miter saw, and easy to install on the backer board. I didn't use the holder they sell on the website for cutting the material; with a power miter saw and a small piece of 1x2 dimensional lumber to fit under the form material (supplants the underlayment during cutting), I found cutting it perfectly wasn't a problem.
Removing the forms was a piece of cake; just remove the tape, insert a putty knife to separate it from the form and it breaks off fairly easily. I didn't have any forms that were problematic as described in some other posts, i.e. split before installing, etc.
I'm very please with the product and would use it again if I needed to pour a countertop.

The edge forms are great. It took us more time than we expected to get the forms perfectly set up (we have basic DIY skills, but we are concrete newbies), but the results are excellent.
We're also really glad we went with the half bullnose form. It looks fantastic. We're going for a modern, sleek look in our kitchen and these fit right in, but that curved edge looks detailed and beautiful.
A few tips. First, like many others say, vibrate! We used Liqui-Crete, which is great. We just vibrated by smacking the edges with a metal tool until bubbles stopped surfacing. It worked very well. But as the pour went on, we lost focus, and weren't as diligent -- and we can really see a difference now that we've removed the forms. (We're not too concerned -- they still look amazing, and we haven't used a slurry yet.) Second tip, tried Gorilla Extra Sticky tape in addition to regular duct tape, and we were very pleased with the Gorilla tape. We had trouble getting the corners just right, but the extra-strong tape made a HUGE difference. (I don't blame the product for our trouble getting corners just right -- we're do-it-yourselfers, not contractors. We did use the Edge Expert and we have done projects like installing all our own moldings and floor trims, but it was still tough to get those cuts exactly right.) Finally, leave time to check and double check for cracks and leaks, and patch with silicone and tape. Nothing complicated about this step, but we didn't leave enough time for it, and we got behind schedule.
Great product, great support, and for us, great results so far. We've removed the molds and done a bit of sanding -- still need to slurry and finish. It was an enormous project and we still have more work ahead! But we are really pleased.

The forms performed as planned on a large curved countertop. The customer is very happy.

I normally use a mold for countertops, and I still prefer that method, but the last one was a 12 foot run with a sink. Pouring in place was the most realistic option for this and the Z Counterform made the final product came out great. The Z Counterform greatly reduced the amount of set-up time and gave us a very uniform appearance on the decorative edge. I really like the sturdy construction and how the product breaks away after the concrete has dried without marring the surface. The one thing I didn't like was with the seam created where two pieces were butted together to fit the 12 foot run. I used tape as shown in the video, but it wasn't strong enough to keep the two forms from springing apart and creating seam that needed much sanding. I think using another short section of the form (scrap piece) as a backer could have stiffen this joint up to eliminate the misalignment. Live and learn. I will try and remember that trick the next time I use this product. And I will use it again.

My husband & I have done numerous DIY projects & felt confident about attempting our own countertops. After extensive research we believe zforms are the only way to go. They were easy to install, edges turned out great, and we didn't have to move them after finishing. I have no complaints on the forms themselves, only wish there were better pictures of end stain results with both types of finish. My suggestion would be to do a sample piece. We did Amber with the Zpoxy finish, which darkens the color & gives you a polished look. It looks nothing like the sample. That being said - it's beautiful & I couldn't be happier with the result. If you happen to be a perfectionist like my husband don't freak out after the stain step. He thought it should have been completely uniform, but the dark spots & what he thought were imperfections are what make the piece so unique & beautiful. It gives it different color variations like granite.
My only other comment for you is: we started out with a really dry mix & really packed the edges, but switched to a more oatmeal consistency that filled in the edges. We feel that it's a lot less labor intense and gives you time to work it before it starts setting. Best of luck if this is your first time. You won't regret it!!

Getting great results is easy with this product.
The edge finish contours are well defined and the placement could not have been easier.
My project was an outdoor kitchen and I wanted to have a greater overhang than the 1.5" the forms provide. I simply placed an additional 1.5" X 1.5" trim board around the top edge of my cabinet base and attached the half bullnose forms to that. I located the screws for attaching the 1.5" board low enough so they would no be blocked by the half bullnose forms.
Results were great! Finish on the edge barely needs to be touched before staining.
Only negative on the product, which almost prevented me from ordering was the size of the package. Why no smaller count packages. 64 lineal feet is far to much for many projects.
