OK so that is Durabond, not Easy Sand. That is heavy duty. I would never have used that, but it can work. I would have used All Purpose for everything. That is, after all, the point of All Purpose.

If you don't like the idea of All Purpose being suboptimal and are willing to shop, then you should go with these products instead. These are non-setting compounds formulated specifically for setting (strength) and then topping (smooth application, sanding).

those are what i was told to use, last year. i have enough of each, so i am going to use em up.

the durabond is not hard to sand. but it sure isn't as easy as thinned ultralight.

but, next time i have a "high spot". i am going to skip the durabond and just use all purpose

Yeah, I was really writing that for other forum readers to read, not so you'd change products midstream :-)

Many pros use multipurpose for all coats---and the same for powdered bag mix---however the skill of a pro means that little sanding is required--

If your not an expert---you will be pleased that you chose light weight topping for your final coat----
