    Default scaffold frogs

    Just recieved my new belt and frogs from Scaffolding Frogs, top quality gear. fast delivery aswell. paid £171 for belt , single frog, level pouch, tape frog, double frog...
    also ordered a spare level frog.. very happy with the gear, in my opinion the best by far on the market...

    £171 for a belt and frogs is INSANE, all you need is the gold spanner from leaches at over £200!!!

    my belt is a good belt cost me £30 for belt and then £40 0n frogs, you aint gotta pay £80 for titanium when i can get a alloy 1 for £25.

    £171 for a belt and frogs is stupid.

    Why not have decent tools???
    Oh... that right, we're Scaffolders... just regular thugs and Neanderthals who lump heavy bits of wood and steel about all day? - B0LLOCKS.


    You pay £20 for a single frog? - You'll get about 10 years out of it, which works out to about £2 a year or 4p a week.


    Why not have decent gear, work with decent tools, wear decent clothes, etc?
    Makes me laugh tbh.


    Everyone seems to forget:
    We're top tradesmen.
    Without us there is NO construction industry.

    Depends what you earn mate, I like nice gear.. so what .. hardly breaking the bank is it ? the guy I got them from has been making and selling them since 1976, so someone must be buying them ..

    You cant beat nice tools, nice boots and a nice Harness.

    Nice tools to use, all day.
    Nice boots as your gonna be wearing them about 10 hours a day.
    Nice Harness as it needs to be comfortable and if you fall, you wanna know that you'll be half OK in it.
