Damages Carbon

I have used Carbon compound plenty of times before, but this is my first with this brand. The compound beads in this one are rather large and do not "pop" when pressure is applied during clamping or tightening. It then makes large holes in your carbon. For Instance my carbon handlebars have very large noticeable holes in them and yes I torqued it to spec. A friend of mine took a look at the compound and then threw bottle in the garbage and said don't use it anymore. Go with FinishLine or FSA compound. Honestly i was a little surprised since I own other Park Tool items such as all purpose grease and Tools. Oh and do not use on seatposts! no matter the brand of compound!
