    Bostik have resized their products to seem cheap? :(

    the tube volumes have been reduced from 310ml to 280ml

    smart marketing to remain seemingly uneffected in these tight econimic times:whistling:

    ya that 1m (5mm x 5mm bead) is alot to loose if you consider the wastage when building a tank. on a 2m tank using 10 tubes i loose almost 2 tubes, i do try use it on bracing etc but if it will compromise the finish id rather chuck it..

    i just thought this was a sneaky approach.. dident even know coke reduced their quantities..

    The cans look a little smaller as well. I'm pretty sure that those are recycled as well. So they're making a killing reducing all quantities. How old is this bottle..... Been on a few too many peoples mouths for my comfort. [​IMG]
