Aquatic Gardens slat mix

I've been seeing a brand of salt called Aquatic Gardens premium salt mix in my local Petco. It's $49.99 for a 150 gallon mix and is clearly listed as a product of China. Meanwhile the 160 gallon mix of Instant Ocean sits right next to it for $62.99. I'm a little leery. It seems to me salt is one area in this hobby where you wouldn't to skimp. Has anyone tried this stuff?

7 month old 100 gallon. Hopefully on my way to a great reef tank. A few small fish and a few small soft corals. T5 HO Lights and ro/di unit.

I've never tried it, but I paid $31.99 for the 160G of IO salt from drsfosterandsmith.com
I am not sure if they still do, but when I ordered, they didn't charge extra for weight.
Maybe you could buy a small bag of the other stuff and mix it and test it, to see if it is worth it.
I did a quick google on it and couldn't find much, other than it's sold at Petsmart. Maybe someone else may have used it...

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
