Default shock oil

I know this question has been asked in a number of different ways, but, does any one know the CST rating of Trinity shock oils. Someone posted a chart awhile back, but it didn't show Trinity's CST rating. Sorry for beating a dead horse, just curious. Thanks.

Trinity is not on the list but it should be pretty close to the others. If not, get a better shock oil.

This list can't be very accurate though. 40=505 while 45=497. It's not linear at all.

Yeah they said that was probably a mislabeled bottle, remember this is Trinity we are talking about.
