    Battleship contains fluroxypyr--I don't care for fluorxypyr.
    Battleship also contains MCPA and triclopyr, but it omits 2,4-D, and dicamba.

    So I like Endrun or a similar product. However I would like to see triclopyr included, and I think it is easy enough to add a surfactant.

    how about taking a basic cheap 2,4d 3way and adding quicksilver,
    compare the cost difference to speedzone ,

    also jdl or lesco sells redzone which i believe is the same as speedzone, a bit cheaper

    I started out using speed zone But switched to 3 way and Quicksilver

    And get great results with this combo and just as good as speed zone

    But i really think your surfant plays a large part in your results

    And not every yard requires quicksilver

    ya thats a good point, i actually discontinued using carfent..a couple years ago, because i found it was only
    burning down the foliage of the hard-to-kills and then regrowing
