at long last, I got this!
December 15, 2014
Finally got the ultimate paste wax LONG after this was first launched. Even on the paste version, the thin film technology does work, although I expect that thin film thing to be more apparent on the liquid. Why just now? Too much mixed reviews especially the liquid version. I tried it on a silver car, and working it in, you can barely see the wax.
I found application and removal a lot easier with the ultimate vs. NXT 2.0, it also seems to have a glassier, more polished look vs. the NXT’s more candy coated and thicker look. I also found that the Ultimate’s look is similar to Collinite 915. So far, my initial experience has been EXTREMELY POSITIVE, even if applied too thickly (as I did), removal is still easy (well, I found the heavily applied Ultimate as easy to remove as a properly applied NXT 2).
I've read others' experience with Ultimate Wax tendency to smear, but so far even on a dark colored car that I did, no smearing at all. I like the shine, however, great as it is, I still see where the NXT 2.0 has the edge. The "candy coated" look seems to work well on slightly older paint, and NXT 2.0 does have depth, while the more polished, crisp and glassier look of the Ultimate Wax seems to have the edge on newer paint.
Why 4 out of 5? After using this and my experience with NXT 2.0, there are aspects where NXT 2.0 is actually better. But overall, I'm loving Ultimate Paste!
Pros:Ease of use (easy on, easy off, and No streaking)
