Owens-corning duration 30 yr

Dave, six months ago I found a ratings table in Consumer Reports comparing different brands, and Owens Corning was their choice, the comparable GAF/ELK Timberline product showed just "average" & poor against wind (w/same wind rating). I wonder if contractors get a better discount of the GAF/ELK products at Home Depot than the Owens Corning at Lowes (which is $1 more expensive then the comparable Timberline).
The 2005 CR table is no longer posted at their Web site.

Owens-corning duration 30 yr

I just put down OC Duration so I'm interested to hear these thoughts as well. It's what our local and reputable builder supply shop carries and had many more color options than the big box stores.
