    nope. its what ever you like for instinse ive tryed poorboys nattys blue because a lot of guys love it so i gave it a try e and dont like it at all. i tryed pinnicles waxes and fell in love the offer a nice shine and are easy on easy off. pinnicel is one of my favorite line of products by far

    Okay!

    So its just waste of money to buy CG 5050?

    I'm just wonder why 5050 is so much more expensive than Sig Series II then...?

    It is just a gimmick?

    its hard to say there is alot of fancy marketing in this industry. does it cost more to make 50/50 wax? who knows. but if u try it and like it then stick with it .for instice i bought a gallon of pinnicles body work shampoo for 70 bucks. alot of money yes!!! is it worth 70 bucks a gallon not sure . do i like it yes. does it cost alot to make it probably no. but who really knows only a chemist knows whats in this stuff. but it works for me so i use it . thats all . rememeber one thing just because it cost more dosnt mean its any better.

    CG 5050 will give you more depth and clearity.

    More carnabua then sig series II

    I see...

    But Swisswax gives us the carnuba in prosentage... also from 30 to 60 % Carnuba.

    But i don't see Pinnacle or Chemical Guys gives us that... why?

    Its easy to say that one wax have a lot of Carnuba. I want to know how much Carnuba the wax have.

    If not, i do not think i would pay a lot more...

    Its possible 5050 is better than Sig Series II, but why...

    I don`t think you will see the big difference on your car. But on a darker car you will.

    I love to try waxes, to see for myself whats good and whats not.

    All the waxes that you list are very good and you really cannot go wrong with any of them. Personally, I take durability into consideration as well. Some high-end waxes (like Souveran for example) look smashing but don't last quite as long. I use Pete's '53 and have been very pleased with the durability.

    for me i go for the looks in a wax if the wax only last 2 monthes thats ok. i love to wax the truck so i dont mind reappling it. some of the higher end waxes might last 6 monthes as apposed to 2 but thats up to what ever you want to try .

    im sure these are nice but for me there just to exspensive. and ive heard that side by side with pinnicle waxes theres really not a big enough of a difference to justify the price.although i wouldnt mind trying zymol vintage:joint:
    im waiting for calgery detail to send me a little in a baggy:shh:

    For me the Pinnacle Liquid Spray works great. My vehicle is my avitar. But It works wonders on dark colors too!

    For some customers 2 months will not do... Of course this has to do with knowing your customer base, what they want and what they value

    remember, some people are willing to pay $225 for a tin of CG 5050. LOL

    For the $ DP MW is one of the best. (at the double pack price, i think it was like $15 each)

    5050 will NOT give you the protection you are looking for but it looks awesome.
