I agree. I used semi in a bathroom and wasn't happy with it. 200 eg-shel goes on differently in my opinion. I love it.

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!
How did the Pro Classic hybrid brush out for ya? The full latex version was like glue.

The new pro classic hybrid finish was awesome. Super smooth and hard just like an oil finish. It's def a little thinner than regular latex paints and will fall on you if you load it on like you are used too. I went right for the guts and started on a 6 panel door. It's not as tacky as I remember the original pc being. The curve on pc is to lay it on (little lighter than normal) then walk away. Don't brush it out and/or play with it cause it does setup fast and gets tacky on you.

I will most likely give it a try Mort.The fast set-up though i dont like.I love the Advance. I brushed flat hollow core doors with no fast drying/brushstroke issues.Unreal for a water base paint!

I can't remember the last time I used it, and it's still being sold...to someone.

Are you that someone?
Evidently, many still use it!

Well, I should have created a poll...I had no idea.

To be honest, I assumed it was an H.O. marketed product.

you use semigloss most of the time for repaints in homes? First time I've heard that on here.

Yea I like exterior SP. Color fastness is poor however in many deep-unnatural colors. I have seen it fade terribly in 16-18 months time in direct exposures.

Yeah, it's like why even use it. Color fade, etc. SW tinting technology is still in 2005.

I would just use A-100 instead before SP.

For trim: super semi. Don't have time to play with pro classic and 200 is just too thin. Most of our homes are $500k and up so I like to use decent trim paint. Regal is good too but SW is more convenient. I'll use pro classic if the customer is really asking for the best finish on the trim.

Thought you meant for walls.

I usually go with Accolade or Aura for trim if it's waterborne. But I suppose SP is a bit cheaper. Good choice for your pricepoint, why go with a better product on smaller homes.
