    Not my cup of tea. Easy to sand, cheap and doesn't blend in as nicely as BG.

    Only tried it the once but I thought the stuff was OK. Lightweight and it sanded easily.

    Thanks for the replies guys, as I'd never used it before I was a bit apprehensive.
    It's in powder form not ready mix though.

    Been using the ready mix during the week and had to put a 220 grade paper on the sander as it was tearing the compound to pieces. Definitely more like a USG blue top than a BG type harder compound. Shame about the 18.50 a tub price tag.
