I was wondering if you are talking about the Ultra Lightweight All Purpose Joint Compound (lime green lid). I have been using it for about 2 months now and I really like it. I use it on all 3 coats. I think what I like about it is the workability. Mix it once and then you don't have to re mix it again. Even if you reuse it again the next day. Works really good applied by hand or machine and it sands easily too. I hope U.S.G don't try to change the mix later on down the road like they did with the blue top (crap) mud.

Then you should move to the States:D:yes::whistling2:
They have it here in Ontario 2buck. A rep gave me a free bucket the other day for me to try out and see what I thought of it.
Exactly that stuff. Lightweight compound.
And ya, it's a lime green lid. Just like the picture.

No they don't PT, your telling lies :whistling2:

2bjr will half to go to the states to test that mud. As a matter of fact, it's the extreme southern part of the states that have that mud. The ones furthest away from us.

So we can't get that mud............... Right:whistling2:

2buckjr will half to go to the states:yes:

Or Sudbury if you don't agree with me:D

I always use green cgc in my zook.
And machine mud for the rest

I tried that machine mud in the zook
and was getting my timing off BeCause is so light
with green mud I can tell within a foot before I run out ,just by the feel of weight of the zook the machine mud is so light ,it took me a few tries before knowing Lol
