Both look good but relatively speaking, MC is more impressive. It appears to be a very stout SynBlend.

Yes both have good looking add packs and I would happily use either.

But MC synblend has always impressed me when I have seen their UOAs here. Isn’t it the same thing as Kendall (but without the Titanium)?

Yes. Or at least a Kendall product.
