    Ditto on #16. Glad I have more than half a can left.
    Thanks,

    Re: Which Wax gives you the best Gloss and Reflection?

    I like the Paste, but my concern is the "passion" it takes to remove the product from the paint, makes believe that I will leave scratches on the paint. From your experience with the past, how are you able to mitigate that, especially with #16?

    Where did you get this information and what was the methodology used to get to these findings?

    How do you measure, "highest percentage of gloss increase"? Seems pretty subjective to me, no?

    Thin applications. Really thin. I get about 80 applications out of a tin. It comes off quite easily if you apply it very thin.

    If you have any thick spots when removing re-moisten the area with the wax applicator again. It will re-dissolve the dried product and you can thin it out.

    Are you saying NXT and #21 are more durable than #16?

    Thumbs up Re: Which Wax gives you the best Gloss and Reflection?

    Right now since I just tried the NXT 2.0, I would have to go with that. It really gave my Honda agreat wet looking shine.

    If I am not mistaken, Mike uses NXT 2.0 now

    Seriously just a fantastic wax!

    NXT??
    This answer depends on how you define durability and of course this is my opinion after using these products over a period of years in my environment. Others may, and likely do, have other opinions.

    Between NXT 1.0 and #16

    Durability and length of protection - winner NXT
    Initial appearance - winner NXT
    Longevity of shine - winner #16

    I am now 4 months into a NXT 2.0 application and can easily say that it rates at the top of my list in all categories.

    (Still not used #21 2.0)
