Default Regal Select over Mad Dog?

I'm using Mad Dog as a primer on this project, and it specifies that the topcoat needs to be 100% acrylic.

Regal Select claims to have 100% acrylic latex resins, but it also boasts some alkyd technology.

Does anyone see any issues cropping up with the alkyds in this paint crackling over Mad Dog?

Your probably going to have to elaborate to get any feedback. Is this interior/exterior?
Why Mad Dog? I personally don't see any reason for compatibility issues.

I used the Mad Dog Deck Fix on failing horse hair plaster and then top coated with RS eggshell. No issues.

I did a beater house with Mad Dog Primer and had a conversation on the phone with the CEO/Big Boss or whatever you want to call him. I asked him the same exact question. He actually recommended the Regal Select and said the alkyd was not an issue. But he kinda recommended the "soft Gloss" over the "Low Lustre" because of the flexibility of the paint.

But he also said people were using the Low Lustre without any problems.

I say go for it, if it was OK for Joe Cocker, why not?
