Some discussion here (Anyone using the POK foam quick stick?).
The comments were not terribly optomistic, although I suppose it could have it's uses.Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

Why not get your local sales rep bring it out for you to experiment with. Then whether it is what you want will be obvious to you in your circumstances.Crazy, but that's how it goes

If I or my department was going to get anything new, foam systems, pumpers, trucks, etc, we would have the dealer or someone who is trying to sell this to us, bring it out to the drill school and let us play with it and see what it can do.
As a rule we don't buy anything sight unseen as we always wnat to get our hands on it, try it and see if it does what they claim it does.
You sure don't want to make a mistake and buy a pig in a poke and not knowing what it can do.Stay Safe and Well Out There....

Sounds like a much better idea than it is. Poor quality foam. You'd do better just mixing Class A in your booster tank.
