    Right now Romans 555. Because it does everything I want a hide paste to do at the price. I will be trying Pro-1 in a few weeks and I'm fairly sure it will become my favorite paste because if you go the archives you will not see one bad review from anyone who has tried it. You won't see that on any other paste on here. Roman 555 has had more good reviews than bad. Romans you can get at Sherwin Williams in a pinch and you don't have to worry about freezing, were Pro-1 told me to order your years supply in the summer months so you don't have to worry about freezing. So I think my shop will have both it it from now on.

    Romans 555, basically because it was the first and only paste I've ever used and it has worked well. So I haven't tried anything else.
     
  7. Not me. I DP it and slap it on. No paste. Then charge 15 bucks for a deer mount. Lasts forever.

    I've tried them all and by far Pro1 is the best. Worth every penny.

    I use michaelp's formulation, which is 5 gallons of Dynamite 111 Clay based wallpaper paste and 20 lbs of hide paste mixed in with it. It's great on both tanned and DP projects.

    I loved the 555 wallpaper paste, until I pulled the skin back the next day, the 555 turned into 222, it has a large water content. Pro-1 fan now.

    X3, i'm still a fan of making my own, I use to love the Joe Coombs hide paste as a mix, but got tired of him being a tight ass when trying to place large orders so have switched to 111 & straight dextrin. Coombs tight ass helped me realize that is better.

    Are you using the same amount of dextrin as you did hide paste?

    I've been using Buckeye Supreme for over a dozen years with no problems at all. The increasing price though is making me consider trying another brand though.
