I'm no expert but I just used Zar Ultra Max, the price tag may give you a heart attack. The stink is nearly non existent and it dries really quick. You could probably do 4 or 5 coats in a day if you really wanted. The finish came out really nice, no bubbles, paint brush lines etc. Flawless like I knew what I was doing
. I'm not sure about durability, I'll let you know in twenty years.
One thing to note is it goes on really thin, I probably put three or four coats on a 40X4 foot hallway and used less than half a gallon. Get the biggest foam brush you can because basically you only need to spread it around.
