    I know this has been discussed but I can't find the threads. By my math if I by regular triplet and spike with quicksilver is about the same price per acre or 1k as buying triplet w/ ester 11. I'm thinking one of these will be my spring and fall herbicide. I really want to kill ground ivy, prostrate, and chickweed the harder broadleafs. Also keep in mind I have a new magnum and I don't want to burn up the pump with speedzone ect.

    so which is more effective triplet(three way) with ester II or triplet(three way) being spiked with quicksilver?

    I was researching ester 11 and came across one of your post. How did you make out with ester 11 in your Magnum? I bought a Magnum last year and used 3 way and had some success. This year with the cooler temps I used ester 2 at 5oz per gallon. I thought it ended up kinda pricey. You noted that ester can burn up the pumps which has me worried.
    Any feedback would be great.
