    I just searched the forums on Stop Slip (after a bad experience - won't go into details) and I saw a number of threads discussing the differences between Rot/Slip. Already pretty much new these, but out of curiosity I was wondering how many of the pros use Stop Rot on everything as a preventative measure? Seems like a good idea after hearing George describe the egg story. Also, with Stop Slip being more or less a useless product, slippage would be mostly a moot issue.

    I apply stop rot to the flesh side of everything I take in as soon as I skin it. Stop rot is a chemical that stops, or greatly slows the degenerative process. I'm not a chemist and don't know how it works, but I do know it does work. Stop slip is basically a glue or strong hairspray that is used to hold the hair in place in areas that have already slipped or are in danger of doing so. Stop Rot is an effective preventative measure. Stop Slip is a band-aid.

    I've used stop rot on a deer that was hung in a cooler for 11 days... I knew it was going to slip... Never did

    here in Arizona it has been a life saver especially on Aug. and Sept. harvested animals as we are not the coolest state. lol

    I am a stop rot fan, however, I am selective on how and where I use it, fresh skins do not need it in my opinion, but the suspect skins get the treatment.
