any difference among using the styptic pencil/liquid/powder?

I've never used the powder, but the pencil kicks the liquid's butt every day of the week and twice on Saturday. Of course, YMMV.
I've been using a liquid instead of a pencil/stick for the last few weeks and I have to agree, it just doesn't seem to be that great in comparison. In fact the only advantage I can see is that it doesn't leave the white powder when it dries. Meh...........:rolleyes:
I have not tried the alum block, but I'd agree with letterk that the pencil is superior to the liquid. It works every time--how many things in your life can you say that about?!
I love the stick but have never been able to own on more than a week as I always drop the damn thing!

The liquid will bounce on impact! :biggrin:

I think most would beg to differ. A styptic pencil or powder is usually far superior at stopping real bleeders than an alum block.

Don't get me wrong, I use an Alum block almost daily and they certainly stop those annoying little weepers but they have little/no effect on anything a bit more serious.

Just my 2c.:cool:
