I feel using anything less is like owning a Chevy and using after market products on it yes it works but was not made by the people who designed it to begain with. make sence?

Thanks for the advice guys. I agree with the Chevy example, but if people like sw as well I think I will go with that based on availability in my area. Thanks!

One more question on this. Called sw to ask about availability of 5 gallon buckets. They have the regular drywall primer, the 200 drywall primer, and the pva. I'm pretty sure I don't want the pva, but us there much difference between the regular and the 200, and any good reason to spend extra money on the "better" primer?

Well the question is what's better about it and is the extra cost worth it :-)

Anyone know the difference?

the promar 200 is fine

to me, if it costs more ,it is most likely a better product
