I had a few seedlings of this variety planted out but were being choked off by native competition. I dug them up early spring and for an experiment grafted on some known varieties. 2 of which are King David & Myers Royal Limbertwig, in my small nursery they kept up vigor with the likes of B118 & Ranetka graftings.

Has anyone used this as a rootstock? If so, what was your experience with it? Did you notice anything about it you didn't like? How hardy did you find it to be?
 
If you're gonna buy things, buy this thing and I get a fat kickback:
