Supplied in 12.5-litre and 15-litre drums with cardboard jackets, Fleet's Pitchmarker is easy to handle. Our tester finds this product, which can be diluted from 2:1 to 8:1, mixes well. At 4:1, Pitchmarker C produces very clear, bright and enduring white lines that consistently scored second place.
Topline Supastadia is available in 12.5-litre containers. Again easy to mix, it produced marginally duller lines. Recommended dilution rate is between 4:1 and 8:1. It took third place throughout the trial. Supaturf's representative suggests the large vat-mixing process may have given some variation in product.
Duramark Supreme was found to be a thick compound to pour and mix.
On close inspection, it was found to have left a slightly lumpy line, but it was award first place throughout the trial in terms of clarity and brightness.
It is noted that the normal dilution rate for Supreme is 5:1 - a little more dilute than the rate we applied.
In conclusion, Duramark Supreme rated highest, followed by Fleet Pitchmarker C and then Topline Supastadia, though all are perfectly acceptable.
