Default Any S.W. SuperPaint Fans Still Around?

I used it exclusively up until 2002, then it changed formula wise causing it to drag the brush unreasonably.
I can't remember the last time I used it, and it's still being sold...to someone.

Are you that someone?

Been a while for me too. All I ever used on res repaints and loved the stuff. Too bad the stuff got changed!
So what is different?
Was fantastic on stucco back in Orlando!

Used the int and ext a couple times.

Didn't like the coverage on the ext, white going over white trim.

Int, was so so.

For interior, I'd rather use promar 200 or better yet, Ben
For ext, A-100 or a BM product like Aura or Ben.

Are the ones complaining on coverage on exterior using super white base or extra white? The super white covers better IMO. Also looks cleaner.

yep its literally my every day paint walls, trim, even ceilings. if i was to nitpick i wish the satin was more like the sheen of pro 200 low sheen, i sell it as one of the top of line paints.

It was probably 70% of the exteriors I did. The rest was either A100 or Duration. I didn't mind using Duration for trim, but I didn't really push it for complete exteriors. Have to admit there are a few of the A100 exteriors in satin holding up better than the SuperPaint satin. Around here exteriors are usually redone in a 7-10yr time period.

Used over 9,000 gallons of interior & exterior combined last year. Awesome coating for the most part. Little difficult to spray the flat on interior ceilings without leaving spray lines. Besides that it's our workhorse. Superpaint is alive and kicking.

Just did the first phase of an interior using it in satin. Seemed to be fine. Second phase coming up in a week or so.

I used A-100 and when Duration arrived, went to it never having used SP ext.

Just used it interior and matched existing color. It was the primer/paint combo, I think. Didn't even know they had it which says what I know about super paint!

PM200 eg-shel is my normal interior, unless customer specifies Duration Home.

Interior Super semi all day/everyday. Most of our res repaints are higher end homes in decent condition. Could prob get away with 200 semi but its like water and has been too light on coverage over builders semi in the past. Super on the other hand is really easy to work with and covers great. Dump it on without any sags and it levels great. I used to use pro classic all the time but got tired of baby sitting it and when business expanded, super doesnt have the pro classic learning curve so we switched over.

Recently used the PC hybrid oil/latex. Unlike the original pc, the stuff seemed to hold on when you put it on. Customer insisted on oil for trim so I recommended this product. Used BM advance in the past and had puddles at the bottom of door/window casings and sags all over the crown. Decided to give SW PC another shot plus they demoed it too me for free! Dried like a rock, very smooth and leveled out like good ole oil. Would def use again on higher end homes specifically looking for the best finishes. Oh and cleaned right out of the brushes with hot water!

I agree about superpaint not sagging. I tried PM200 and it is a lot thinner and tends to run.
