    I said it from the beginning, I had a feeling that Phil will not carry this line. maybe cuz it not very popular? just becuz 50+ people knows n likes to try this line, as a company, are you gonna cater to these 50+ people rather than 1000s of who knows about a product line?

    DB is a small fraction of his customers, he sponsors many boards.

    I have it on pretty good authority that he's gonna carry some of it ;) He had PRIMA listed as a vendor on his web store yesterday but changed it when I posted about it. :p

    As for popularity, you're right it's not. Because it's a small company with a dozen boutique items and no 'big' resellers in the USA other than themselves. You don't hear a lot about Werkstat products either, but the people who use them rave about them AND Phil has tried to get Werkstat in his lineup but they (Werkstat) won't do it.

    Also, in the case of DB I find that there isn't TONS of talk about products that Phil doesn't carry. The board is sort of centered around what Phil stocks. Sure there's some talk about CG stuff and this and that, but there's more talk about Sonax and 1Z and the stuff that's sponsored here like Rubbish Boys. The primary exception seems to be Duragloss, since p1et sure loves it. :)

    Oh, and 56!

    It's a solid line .I already use some of it as it flat out works.I would prefer to buy them from Phil But in the end it has to be worth it from a business aspect

    I am also curious if Phil is going to stock the Prima line. I'm all for a bigger selection from DD and any auto detailing vendor, but it's gotta be worth it for his business.

    He had up the brand name in the manufacturer pulldown on his page yesterday and then removed it. So my guess is he's gonna give it a go in some capacity.

    Why don't we stop sweatin it and if Phil decides to sell or not too I'm sure he'll tell us. No point wasting time in speculating.

    This man hearts hearts Prima!!!

    like DSMS said, less is better. jus look at AG, PAC, DI, and ADS. all these company have too much n they give more deals than DD. so does DD wanna head to that direction?? I dunno, cuz I was at Phil's place and its not so big.....but if phil has it, I won't be jumping on it like some people, cuz I have gallons of polishes already!! :sorry:

    Mindflux Welcome to Detailing

    Prima isn't just polishes. Also what are you going on about with ADS? they carry meguiars and optimum and a bit of menzerna. If anything they carry less than almost every other vendor.

    I for one hope he stocks it. None of the other guys do.
  13. Frankastic

    I know Prima is not just polishes, but whatever they have I have already. ADS seem to rotate Meg, Menz, and Opt every other week offering 25% off, man I wish Phil can do that, one week 1Z, Adams, Opt, Meg, Menz, .......on and on.
  14. Mindflux

    Mindflux Welcome to Detailing

    Says the guy that just got 40% off.

    FWIW ADS's sale two weeks ago was a Dozen Meguiar's towels for $9.99.

    on topics, prima is fairly good line. I prefer other things today but for amateurs they are easy enough for use.

    I buy from ADS and others because its exhausting with everyone plugging product in everything they do and having sales every 2 seconds.

    Some people call it business saavy but I call it obnoxious when people have sale on everything all the time. You read forums where people sponsor and the response to people is just a link to a product instead real help... what does that do for people who don't know?

    Back years ago, sales were much more valuable. Now everyone has "affiliate" and everyone discounts and undercuts everyone else

    Vendor may as well lower prices with all the sale. Thats a huge factor for me and making purchase.

    Swirl and SIP were owned by the Black Obsidian IS250awd I was working on. I had to resort to M105 via Rotary to cut down on time. I did use Amigo to remove the light holograms though. Worked like a charm since I did the alcohol wipedown before 845 and Banana Gloss

    Plenty of good stuff in this line for both amateur and pro.

    Even local retailers do these things now. Lowes will match Home depots prices. They know todays consumers are savvy shoppers that want the best price over service. This is why the WalMart corporation makes more overall in one day than Target Corp does ALL year.

    Running sales is how you attract customers. Hell if AG didn't have a sale in June I wouldn't have spent $150 bucks with them on stuff I "needed" (note, I didn't "NEED" any of it).

    Likewise with Phil, if he didn't have his 20% off July sale I wouldn't have spent $125 with him so readily. It's just how things go now. The economy is down, competition is up.
