I prefer the cream hardener vice the MEKP. It seems smoother and easier to tell when the hardener is properly mixed.

What wood do you need to repair?
No filler is ideal for repairing decking. Any wood that is filled should have all the surrounding punky wood removed first.

I don't know that one brand would be better than another because wood will shrink/expand with moisture changes and that makes it difficult for any filler to stay put. Ideally you'd replace that board, short of that the better you seal the repair the better chance it has.
