I'd agree with that.. although, having used both International's "Schooner Tropical" (presumably the same as the Interlux stuff), Epiphanes and Uroxsys (in increasing order of cost!) I'd have to say that the more expensive the product the better it is. Epiphanes is really very good, but the Uroxsys stuff (if you can get it) is easier to use, longer lasting and at least as nice to look at.

..but, now, being tired of the poor shelf-life of varnishes in general and no longer being willing to watch $$$ worth of varnish go off in the tin, I now just use the cheap stuff and go sailing.
