I used multi finish on a scottish Island three years ago and thought it was fine.The irish skimcoat I'm using ATM is getting stiff soon as it hits the board.

Easier to flatten, finish and generally work with is BG.
Residue on your tools & buckets builds up 10 times quicker though!

Finding ultra finish hard to work with at the minute the normal carlite red bags are a bit better. Multi finish is much better to use but no were stocks it bar B&Q near me
