    Post hmmm

    filler is crap, but the finish is good when you get used to it & rubs down nice,
    and nice big buckets...

    I like the filler, finish is good, just need to use it a bit more to make my mind up on it.

    Ready mix is good. Sanding is a pleasure compared to BG

    I use the g tec filller all the time. Its what is mainly used as a filler here in ireland.mix it well and above cream with a decent paddle for best results as this leaves less pinholes. The ready mix finish is not bad either.it seems to dry pretty quick and rubs down okay. I prefer blue top sheetrock because it simply is the best!

    Blue top Sheetrock is too soft and easily damaged when sanding. It needs to be sealed really after to harden it up. Nice to use though.

    soft stuff indeed does dent somewhat easily but its a dream to work with. At least it gives the painters a bit of filling to do-dont want to see those boys gettin away too easy!
