i have used both and my take one is probably as good as the other, but if you duracoat you can adjust your sprayer and this can make a difference in the ease of application. When I duracoat I use very light coats and recoat many times taking about a hr to do a gun. With Alumahyde its a 5 minute process because the consistency is regulated by a spray can. I always bought those cheap sprayers you connect to a compressor and had excellent results. Just remember duracoat is a two step, in that you have to mix the two compounds and by adding a very small amount of extra amount of hardner you can play with the color. For instance I used HK black and made the color a little deeper by doing that.
