I have a fair amount of repair exp but am tired of using microballons, as it always seems to sag. I'd like to find a compatible filler that will smooth out after a patch.

Any suggestions?

System 3 Silvertip QuickFair is the best for epoxy. If the 2 part is too thin - add more balloons until it is the consistancy you want. Balloons sold separately.

x2  ;)

Also the hardener used makes a difference.
Slow allows the mix to sag, fast shortens pot life.

x3 on the quick fair but if you want to keep mixing your own fairing compound using microballoons you can add a small amount of cabosil so it doesn't sag.

personally i like the quick fair because you can usually get 2 applications done in one day and sands easily

I almost always use "Quickfair". It is by far the easiest and most consistant of any I have used. I fair the bottom of a boat to be used in the swamps with epoxy thickened with "Cabosil" and talc, though. Harder to use, but more resistant to scratching and wear.

Best regards,
