Masters Blend

  1. Why was Masters Blend pulled anybody know. McKenzie didn't have an answer. What is everyone using. MB was the only thing I've ever used with any success.

    Have you read the "no more Master's Blend" thread below?

    Yup , they did and have repackaged it in their own containers (tall aluminum cans) , I would imagine they'll sell to other suppliers i didn't ask when i talked to the gal . They have it if you need it , same price but shipping is 15.00 alone ...

    What gauge needle is everyone using for the new masters blend? I just bought some and it seems thicker than the old stuff.

    I'm still using the older batch I had left so I don't know bout the new stuff , they said they weren't changing anything but the packaging.... I've been using one of the smallest , a 29ga . I go through them fast because they clog easy , as soon as the MB starts to kick they're done ...

    This is what I was told as well, and that they were offering it in a pink and gray tint. Unfortunately as mentioned, it is thick and difficult to draw up a 22 GA needle and mixing the 2 parts is a real slow process. The old Master's Blend would fill the webbing on the feet when injecting but this product wants to leak back out of the injection site instead of fill the web areas. Hopefully they will realize it's not the "same" and make some changes. The old "Master's Blend" was actually a wood-filler product, among other things, and manufactured/sold under a different name. They sold large quantities that were re-labeled and sold as Master's blend by the taxidermy industry. It wasn't perfect, but for 20 something years has been a very worthy product.
