PVA or what

What do you guys use on new smooth wall finish sheetrock? I did a job last week and used Sherwin Williams Southwest Builders Surfacer. Worked great covered well, dried a little faster than it could be back rolled but other than that everyone was pleased including the sheetrock crew and the super picky gc.

This product cost double what the local pva primer cost.

Primer? who uses primer?

6-2 Speedhide primer from PPG or Moores 253-00 Super Spec Undercoater/Primer Both work pretty well for me but I guess it depends on what the finish product is gonna be.

Cheap flat....2-112 Wall Supreme PPG, 2 coats and no primer

Cheap Egg....depending on color 2 coats no primer or 1 coat tinted 6-2 or 253, and 1 coat finish ( 2 depending on color )
