    Actually pure latex degrades under UV rays faster than TBG, it lasts even less. It's faster though.

    The natural latex is about 5% faster than TBG. It is about as fast as TBB.<br><br>But it does degrade a bit faster than TBG or TBB.<br><br>All in all, I would not pay ANY more money for it. I have a stash of it and still use TBG mostly.
