IMO one of the best is PPG K36 Hi build primer/surfacer. Sands very easily, sprays real well, and grabs like a pit bull.

And emptys your pocketbook too. Paying for the name. I use cheaper brands for undercoats, might be different if your a shop and get a lifetime warrenty from ppg by sticking with thier products from start to finish.

I am a hobbyist and have been using PPG products since my first car that I painted in 1969. PPG has never let me down, as have other "cheaper" less quality products. It only cost a little more to go first class. A quality paint job is going to be expensive no matter who's products you use. It makes absolutely zero sense to cheap out on the primer which is the base upon which you build.

An old saying comes to mind, "penny wise, pound foolish".

There are plenty of good poly products out there. they all fill very well. The biggest pro to the poly is it doesn't move once it is dry. Primer fillers can sink or swell if the surface being primed has a less than desireable profile (sand scratches in your mud too coarse). 3M has one now that works o.k. I Prefer to spend a little more for Spies Hecker 3508 poly. This stuff is so nice. PPG's K-36/38 is not a poly product but is a very good filler. And also if you are going to try to save money on your rod... do it on the interior not the exterior ( you only get one good shot at it..Make it count ). Vince.. you definitely hit the nail on the head.... Bryan
