    For those of you who liked the old momentum with chlopyralid like me...

    Look into Eliminate from Lesco. It is cheaper per k than momentum, labeled for low volume and smokes just about anything in it;s path. clover jumps out of the ground. It goes down at 1.1 oz per k. Actives are 2-4 d (almost 50%) , Dicamba, MCPP

    Thought I would share the experience. I have "test plotted" over 1 mil sq ft and had great results. I had a large site 60 acres, and put 2 acres each three way, momentum and eliminate and found that three way knocked weeds back but didnt give a real good kill. Eliminate and momentum gave equal results with eliminate being slightly better on broadleaf and buckhorn plantain. IMHOP. This was a new site with weeds galore and side by side with same irrigation etc. sprayed out of my PG.

    I just ran my last bit of momentum today and will be switching to eliminate from here out.

    Just my 2 cents on a new product that I have tried with good results since everyone wants to know what works including myself.

    How does the odor compare with momentum? I like momentum for its low ordor, but if eliminate has low ordor I will give it a try.

    Very low odor. My helper is using a little 3-way ( I had some kicking around and want to get rid of it) to spray bed edges that I can't get with my PG and I can smell the 3-way but not the eliminate out of the PG.

    To give you a better idea, I use transfilm as my sticker and I can smell the transfilm over the eliminate.

    Try it out. I am switching to it completely for the rest of the year for the low odor and good results.

    Thanks for the info. I will buy some on my next round. I used momentum FX last round and works well, but has alot more odor than the old momentum. Can't wait to try eliminate.

    I'm looking to switch products I have been using the old Momentum. Can't decide between FX or the Eliminate. I have a lot of Woodsorell and the old Momentum doesn't seem to do anything, has anybody had experience with either of these products and what kind of results have they produced?

    FYI

    TH, I share your exictement with Eliminate, the product performs great. The problem with your assesment is with the actives. Eliominate contains (NO) 2-4 d. The actives are MCPA, Dicamba and Triclopyr, no 2-4 d hence the name Eliminate.

    Nice feature for warm weather is the absents of required long sleeves on the msds or label
