Default Re: few sealers/ primers

Stick to the Killz. Good stuff, that's what most of the builders I know use as a primer.

Acrylic paint won't stick to the Minwax
Behrs is usually crap

Always remember that you have to keep the layers of finish compatible or you'll end up with a peeling issue.

As you get started in this take notes on what sealers, paints and topcoats you use on each plug. Sooner or later you'll try a different paint that causes all kinds of problems. Sometimes it can take half a season of fishing the plug before the problem shows itself (like an epoxy topcoat peeling off).
If you've taken notes you'll be able to identify what caused the issue and you'll be able to avoid doing it again.
