Charles ,

Gel stains are designed to avoid blotching and depending on the wood thay can do very well, the formula above was looking to emulate a slightly aged cherry , it did do well.

If you have wood that is really blotch prone then you do need a pre stain, you just have to experiment to see.

We use alot of dyes and unless sprayed they blotch , and we had issues with shellac , which we used for years, it was just not consistent , so we developed the Blotch control .
