We sold Imperial whitetail and synergy to a guy in Centralia last year. He put out one plot that was Imperial on one side and synergy ladino on the other. He talked with me at the classic and ordered more synergy. He said that in his plot, he could see very little difference between the 2 and that the deer grazed both varieties equally. This is the only in person side by side comparison I have heard about. I use the synergy ladino myself because of the cost factor, and have excellent luck with it. But unless a guy is going to put out a huge amount of acerage, I think he should go with which ever one he feels he will have the most confidence in.
