Not exactly true. While dow 33 may be classified similairly, brands like hatersauce are a thinner down 33. In my opinion it's much more effective in what i've used it for as lube, but Bob Long and some other companies don't like it because it's thinner. They believe it can and will get into the solenoid and air ways.

And these companies will also end your warranty if you use hatersauce.

I'll buy that. You can't change the formula for Dow formula 33 and still call it Dow 33, but I can see different brands having the same formula but varying viscosities.

Yup. I am not completely sure what on a whole can make different dow 33's different than others, myself. But I did notice that hater does seem runnier and/or "wetter" after use along the applied areas.

^ I'm of the impression they're blending products, Eg. like some homebrews of 33 + gold cup. I don't know enough to start playing with viscosity yet so use straight 33.

Moving on from my blowing my gun out & back to Westmont Yard - for other PBN readers my thoughts:
- price is great
- good people, helpful, felt secure leaving my gear around
- field seemed well set up, reballs reasonably clean
- sure a couple players cheat, suck it up & shoot them again. Who cares, it's for fun & you respawn in 1min.

I am as mentioned an older guy, in shape, beginner level, & had a great time in the 530 open field session. Will go again. I do like the 1 hopper limit, makes for a more even playing field.

Only miiiinor issue was seeing a kid with his own marker test pretty hot on chrono and run with it, I didn't speak up but will next time. No need for that esp. with so many younger kids on rentals.

Im glad you had a nice time mueller. Spartan runs the field well. He's one of my bestest friends, even though he doesn't invite me out for beers much anymore. That butthead.

Please, berate him every chance you get for that.

Good Lord yes, if you or anyone think someone else is shooting hot let a ref know and we'll chrono them immediately. The last two weeks we've had to kick out players for shooting hot in Advanced. We take it seriously, we just don't usually have the time to look over everyone's shoulder when they chrono.
