Ease and Shine Like no Other
I used to detail old cars that were trade-ins at the dealership with the whole rubbing compound and building up that deep shine after multiple applications and tools. Early on I got hooked on Meguiar's cleaner wax and have tried Mother's as well. What I HATE about paste wax is the elbow grease it takes to get it on and off (I know some use fancy tools - I prefer by hand). I also actually hate having to wait for it to dry as well - it's a time consuming evolution. I read some reviews and popular products on Autogeek and found Pinnacle. This stuff lasts forever and the shine looks wet. It's so easy to put on and you can do one panel/section at a time and just wipe right off. My last Pinnacle can lasted 3 years waxing 2 medium size sedan/hatchbacks. It's soft and does not scratch the surface and really makes your car pop. I ran out recently and purchased some Mother's Carnuba Paste Wax and I immediately regretted that decision with the amount of work it took to get the dried wax off...it was not fun! I scrambled back to the site and purchase more Pinnacle immediately. I don't even have a whiz-bang car, just a Japanese version of the Nissan Versa. I just enjoy making my car look good and preserving the paint job.
Pros-Can lasts forever - very little wax is needed
-You can do one panel at a time - put it on, and wipe it right off
-Paste is nice and soft, easy to put on with very little elbow grease
-Makes car look like that wet-look shine

Exceeded my expectations
Gave up on paste waxes years ago and was pretty much hooked on polymer polishes like Duragloss on my Corvette. After talking with a professional detailer I decided to take his advice and try a premium Carnauba like Pinnacle. Without a doubt the easiest wax to use I have ever tried. The results were outstanding. I am a convert. Well worth the money if a show quality appearance is your goal.
ProsEasy to use, beautiful shine.
ConsNone so far.

The application of Signature Series II was extremely easy, went on easy, buffed off easy. Left a nice shine and made the car beautiful.

Worth its weight in Carnauba
This is the first time I've splurged for a more expensive wax but so far I've not been disappointed. I previously used Prima products and think they worked well in comparison until now. This stuff removes just as easily as you can apply it. Not having to buff the product off with tons of effort like most other waxes makes this a breeze. Applied this to my Starfire Pearl IS-F and it looks amazing. Great gloss and depth for a white car and the finish is buttery smooth. Would recommend even to my non hardcore car care friends.
ProsApplies and removes quickly/easily.
A little goes a long way.
Doesn't appear to attract dust/pollen like most waxes. Huge plus in the summer months!
ConsHaven't found any yet.

I just finished waxing my F150 and had to let people know how good this product is. Number one you don't wait for this to dry to a haze and get out the elbow grease to get it off. Apply to a panel then buff off. I have a Porter Cable 7424 and don't bother getting it out....don't need to this wax comes off with ease especially if you clay bar your vehicle first!! The shine is eye catching and the product is a pleasure to work with.
My application is a layer of Pinnacle Deep Gloss Paint Sealant let cure for 24 hours and follow with the Pinnacle Signature Series II.
In my experience the wax lasts longer than 90 days even in the Florida sun!!

Pinnacle Carnauba Wax
This wax is OK I prefer Collinite Super Double Coat Wax .I find both are easy to apply both come off rather easily but Collinite is much cheaper wax and last longer on the car and in the can. I would say that I wax a car every week and a can of Collinite lasts much longer than 50 applications
ProsEasy on off
ConsCost of the product is quite expensive

Best Wax Ever
This is by far the best wax I have ever used. It is also the most expensive. I really thought a lot before spending this much on car wax. Would I really see any difference? Was it going to be worth the cost? Well, It Differently was. I was a auto painter, before owning a high end Body Shop for thirty years. So I do have lot's of car experiences. After using Klasse sealer on both our cars. I put on several coats of Pinnacle Series 2. It is so easy to use. Comes off as easy as it goes on. And WOW, my cars fell like satin. It make them so smooth and shinny. My S 55 is a 2004. So I first used a clay bar, to remove contaminates, and really clean the paint. When people see my car, than can not believe it is 11 years old.
I think you have to consider that there are a lot of waxing s in the jar. And, the ease of use, really cut's down on the labor.
This is the only wax I will be using, from now on.
ProsResults, Ease of use, so it cuts down on the labor and it goes a long way.

Great Wax, Worth The Extra Money!
Waxed my new white Kia Optima sxl and it looks great. A lot of waxes don't make a big difference on white paint but this one does. Definitely better than the Meguires waxes I have bought in the past. Great product!

So much better than OTC waxes
I was very sceptical buying a wax that cost 5 times more than something you can pick up at the local store. This wax is well worth it, though. Since you apply and immediately wipe it off, there is no dust produced, and it wipes off very easy, as long as your buffing towel is clean. It made my crystal black silica (metallic black) Subaru really shine. Plus, the slickness is great, and one application (by hand) didn't even make a dent in the tub. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to take car care to that next level.

Easy to use; long lasting.
ProsGoes a long way
ConsNo cons on the wax. Free shipping & handling order amount and actual shipping & handling is absurd. I won't order until I can get free shipping and handling.

The best wax I have ever used
I have always used this wax on my 1989 z24,with low mileage and limited use. People frequently ask", who painted your car ?",they are astonished> The wax is a pleasure to use, the shine is like no other wax, which i may add,and is every easy to apply ! I have been using carnuba waxes since 1964, in my opinion no other wax comes "close". Sincerely, Tom Rigby

Awesome all around
This stuff is really nice to use. It applies literally like butter. Smells amazing like tropical citrus and lemon. The container is its hidden gem, it has about a 1/8" thick o-ring along the bottom to keep it air tight. Its not as slick as "Fire over Ice" but I love using it for its smell and look. It makes the paint more clear. My first use after wiping it off revealed water spots I had never seen before. I enjoy using this once a month or so.
smells great, decent wax
decent wax at best. Just about the same as souveran for less money. Doesn't last very long but creates a good wet look

It is a great product . We use it here in Sofia, Bulgaria

Is the price worth it!? YES
I was on the fence about this. I wasn't sure if I was ready to spend this much money on a beauty wax.
I'm glad I did. My car already had a coat of Menzerna Power lock and Collinite 845. I topped everything off this SSII and the shine it left made me grab my camera immediately.
The ease of application is bar-none. Apply a light coat and wipe off immediately. Requires almost no effort to buff off and the shine! I can't get over it!
I will be trying out Blackfire's paste wax next time, but I will definitely come back to this. I thought White paint was difficult to make glow, but SSII made it possible.
cannot be beat for the $$$
I selected this wax to try after reading many reviews and have to say it is awesome for the cash! As a test I applied this to my personal car on one side to test against WG Fusion on the other for a 90 day stretch in the Michigan winter. This wax held it's own against the fusion every step of the way. The only real difference was static, which caused a bit more dusting than the Fusion side did.

I'm used to using relatively cheap waxes (Meguiars NXT Gen, Etc) so this was a new field for me in the world of detailing. I'm so impressed by this wax that I don't believe I'll ever go back to anything less.
Goes on easily, comes off easily, and puts an excellent shine on my bright red Jeep Wrangler. I have an 02 Wrangler with near-perfect original paint thanks to plenty of care by my father and I, and this wax looks incredible on it. All those years of hard work keeping the paint nice comes to a "Pinnacle" here, pun intended. =D
The only "Cheap" wax I would ever use after this is Meguiar's #26 High Tech Yellow wax... which is probably the best low-cost wax I've ever used by the way. Doesn't compare to this though.
Effortless to apply
An excellent choice for a deep shine. Goes on super easy and smooth. Wipes off with little effort, so long as you don't allow it to haze. Durability is limited, especially after a few washes, but it's so quick to apply that it's not a big problem.
A must have
This wax can hold its own against any high end wax for sure. The looks are superb, it will make metallic flakes just jump out at you, paired up with one of the easiest waxes to apply and it is a sure winner

I am smitten
This is the best wax I ever used. I used Meguiars Ultimate Polish, NXT Gen Tech Wax, then followed it up with Pinnacle Signature Series II; I was blown away at the deep, wet look. Wipes off real easy but leaves a smooth coat. Highly recommend this product.
