Anthony, I confess to be a bit more intense on this than the subject matter deserves. It is probably like that old quip about academia, "the reason the fights are so intense is that that stakes are so small!"
Having said that, I am a little bit obsessive and Jonathan Townsend has graciously agreed to be a judge in blind test. I believe he has no exposure to Plasti-Dip or Science Friction and has no "dog in this fight"
I am going to mail Jonathan several cards treated with Plasti-Dip, Science Friction and some untreated. I am not going to tell him exactly how many in each category (although there will be at least two in each category). I will be interested in his observations.
BTW, I do not care about the difference, if any, in the smell while applying the spray. I think Brad is spot on here. I do think it is relevant if there is a difference in smell after the spray has dried.
