prism in 1/16th- joints?

I was recently at Daltile in Seattle and while I was waiting for them to get my tile order, I was reading about Prism Grout. I was thinking about giving it a try on my current job. I was reading about it on this forum, and it looked like some people were having problems getting it into their joints. Then I read some newer posts saying they have a new formula now? Would it be a bad idea to use it on my wall tile that has joints that are maybe a hair under 1/16th inch? And does anyone know how prism holds up compared to other grouts as far as flexibility? Thanks

Hi Levi - Welcome to the forum.

I don't know, never used the stuff, just wanted to say hi.

Someone will be along shortly with an answer for you.

I'm an apocaloptimist. I'm well aware that everything is going to hell - but I'm convinced it's going to be okay.

I'm still not convinced that they actually make Prism grout. I've never seen it.
Try Laticrete's Permacolor grout. I've stuck that in 1/32" joints with no problems.
