Has anyone used the new Suprema wall from Techo utilizing geogrid? What's your opinion of it? I like the block itself a lot but when it came time to install a layer of grid I got extremely frustrated with it. I'm embarrassed to say but 11 block took me about an hour to set.

We put our first wall up with it this past week and man what a pain the arse the pins are with geogrid. I was having a difficult time lining up the block with the pins and geogrid. Was a major pain in the balls. I wound up picking the 90# block up 4-5 times before getting it to seat properly. I was installing a straight wall so it wasn't as if I was dealing with turns or anything.

If I didn't line the top/bottom block and pins up perfect the pins would twist and go on end making the block rock. Am I doing something wrong? Any special technique for installing it?
