Paul,

Its hard to beat Resin Research. I still use it in many layups. Only real reason I switched to MGS is the working time, and I haven't tried RR's slowest hardener, mostly because they never returned my email requesting pricing! I have Pro-Set as well which works fine except the hardener goes bad pretty quick.

All this mess about HDT and post-cure strength is, for the most part, exaggerated in our industry. Yes if I'm paying $700+ for a toy I want it as stiff as possible and not to deform under heat but under normal circumstances room cure RR HDT are plenty sufficient. Don't leave your toys in your hot trunk for extended periods of time.
