Oh so you are a boarder ? what the heck ? All purpose far exceeds regular taping in all aspects not only performance , and a whole lot less shrinkage. Stick to what you know that is if hanging is your thing.keep doing what your doing taping compond is by far better then all purpose,
as far as i am concerned all purpose is crap and they should stop making it
they make taping compond for taping and i like lite finish for coating
but all purpose is good for a small patch thats all i would us it for if that
Funny; where I am it's the taping mud that rips paper off the board when you scrape it dry, and not the all purpose so much.when your takin a break and walking around and you go to scrape a mud drip off the wall that has dried,if its allpurpose it will damn near tear the paper off the wall.
haha .this post made me laugh because now you have three types of mud. i know what you mean though. i always have all purpose for small jobs.I like taping mud because there is more glue in it,It is a pain having to carry around taping mud and finishing mud,so i always have some all purpose on hand also
