    Mother's was good but you don't get much use out of the bar and heard the same about meguiar's too

    now riccardo i would love to try there is so much talk and hype about it i would have to see for myself

    danase who and where do you buy it from could not find it when i searched?

    did not try the magic cause thought that was the same as the chem. stuff and heard bad thing's about that too

    i think what i should ask is what is the closest to riccardo clay you can get with out getting riccardo??

    TROJAN, it depends where you are situated. If your in the US, unfortunetly you wont be able to get Ricardo but if your in Canada you can get your hands on as much clay as you wish just go here:
    eShine Canada: Riccardo Clay (6.2oz)

    OTC clay works fine for me, Clay Magic, Meguiars, or Mothers.

    I saw that when i searched the other posts for riccardo and ordered a bar to try for now have to see what the hype is hahaha.

    As for the other bars i need something i can get alot of easy but works great and does what it is made to do which i find out not many clays do what they say but cost alot.

    I like the easy to need not the super hard crap or the chalky break apart ones suck too a little stretchy would be good i see you post alot on here what do you use???

    i used megs clay kit most of the time. IMO it's the best OTC clay. It has not cause any marring to my honda and honda is one of the softest paints out there. Second to me would be clay magic blue imho. another OTC. There was something wrong with mothers when i used it. Well, i haven't tried any others. It may not be one of the best out there but it's the best when need one as quickly as possible.

    I also use the Griot's clay and just picked up the Pinnacle's clay - I like the Griot's clay better.

    Fwiw - I really don't know if this does any harm, but I use the microwave to heat the clay for about ten seconds to make the clay more malleable.
