Has anyone used Cabot Stains and what are the Pro and Con's about this stain?

Is it one of the best on the market for sealing and staining exterior wood?

Along with Sikkens, yes I think so
I use the two for exterior decks and such
I've also use the BM and SW products and IMO they are not as good

I use Cabots on decks fences and on 50% of my exterior siding jobs. The P.R.O. VT acrylic solid siding stain (much better than SW woodscapes) I like and use a lot. Here in N. MI cedar siding is very common and cabot semi-trans works great. I use Sikkens on the log homes I do. Also, their Problem Solver primer is a good deck and all purpose oil primer.

I did buy the Primer for the floor and learned that I could not stain it until 6 months from now since it is new wood.

I belive that I will be very please with Cabots for what they told me about it.

By the way how long does a coat of Deck stain last before you have to restain it again?

yes
all pro's, no con's
I cannot say if it's the best, but I like it and have used a lot of it
