SPUD,

What's shakin' brotha' !! Thanx for th Kind words !! Yeah ... I love this stuff better than Blacken-It !! Fo-Sho !! It's cleaner, leaves a cleaner, natural look on th trax & it can be reused ... It might take a lil longer to get th results ... but still says You some Coin !!

Is this the same stuff that AK is bottling? I know their camo mask is repackaged from this same company (I think anyway, if I am wrong on this please someone correct me, thought I read that somewhere though), so I would think this would be the same?

Wonder how different this is from Blacken It? I know with Blacken It, you definitely didn't leave your tracks in it for more than an hr or so.

Had a customer leave a set in over night.....woke up to a grey/black grimy soup.....the Blacken It had completely dissolved his tracks! LOL

Tried to blame me, said I sold him defective tracks/solution, when I asked if he read the instructions on the Blacken It, he replied that he did, however when I pointed out that he then must have read the warning in the instructions to NOT leave anything in the solution for more the 30mins at a time.

Exactly what SPUD said. Since AK has cobranded with USCHI on this. It is exactly the same burnishing fluid. There's even a nod to Uschi on Their label.

As far as The Blacken-It .... I did a side by Side test ... Here is th run of track that I dropped in Blacken-it & left it in there for the same amount of time. I prepped both runs exactly th same - Distilled Vinegar Bath( over night) , rinse in water , dry , Dip in th "Bath Tub". The Blacken-It , compared to USCHI's had a ton of sediment build up fast. to the point that after 12 minutes I couldn't see th track runs. Plus when th trax came out they were too "rusty " for My personal taste & I really did Dig th patina that came out of the USCHI fluid. ! Also the Blacken-It really didn't get down into all of the nooks of the Trax as well as the USCHI stuff !!

One more thing ... When th Sets were dry - USCHI's were very smooth to th touch as aposed to the Blacken-It set that felt a lil gritty. Really didn't Dig that !



USCHI's Trax


Blacken-It set .


OF course you could choose to leave the Trax in the USCHI solution in longer & Since you cut it 50/50 with tap water, You get twice as much & save it to do another set of trax !

I Highly Recommend it !!
