Marine Tuf-Cloth

Has anyone or does anyone use the Sentry Solutions "Marine Tuf-Cloth" on their firearms? To go one step further, has anyone or does anyone use any of Sentry Solutions products? If so, I would appreciate your feedback.

The Marine Tuf-Cloth is a relatively new product, so I would expect few people have used it. Instead of the usual silicone or oil, it incorporates new formulation rust inhibitors (similar to Weapon Shield), and as such may be an improvement over the old silicone cloth standby. But since it is a web-order item, it will probably take a while before many shooters actually see one (there is an advantage to being in a store where people walk in and handle products). It seems to be priced reasonably, even though it is 2X what a silicone cloth costs. I would definitely try one if I saw it in a store for that price. But that price plus S&H, probably not.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?

Tests done on one of the knife forums show this product to be markedly superior in corrosion resistance.

I have a regular Tuf-cloth that I renew regularly with Tuff Glide. I have been pleased with its performance over the years. Not to be argumentative, but the Marine version has been around for some years, and isn't a new product. I believe it is meant to be for marine use and as such is more protective than the regular product.

I just started using their Tuf-glide and bp-powder.
Whooo doggy !
You should feel how Tuf-glide makes a slide feel !
Bp powder is fantastic in locks as well.
It does wear off of stainless though, supposed to soak in to regular steel though. Still lasts longer than grease.
Make sure to degrease with alcohol first or it doesn't bond well.
