best pipe dope?

Anybody have any praise or condemnation about pipe thread sealant brands? Specifically Im thinking of seacock ballvalve to adapter flange or barbed adapter threads. Tapered pipe thread to tapered pipe thread.
Are there some specifically for seawater? Or does one use something like 4200 or 291 instead like I anticipate using on the thru hull threads?
Ive got some Hercules "BLOCK" but all makers seems to say their stuff is a miracle.
Teflon tape seems inadequate.
