Thanks for the edits Picus. I never actually used the Absorber before, I just heard good things about it. I've stuck with waffle weave all my life. I also know nothing about Zaino lol I've gone my own little way since I started doing my own car.
I've tried Mother's Reflections, Meguiar's Gold Class, Pinnacle Souveran, and I'm currently testing out Natty's Paste Wax this weekend. Mother's Reflections is my personal fave one that you can find at the store, and Pinnacle was actually a tad disappointing for me, although I sprang for the liquid version rather than the $80 paste version. I'll see how the Natty's does this wekend.
+1000 on the Zaino Z9/Z10. Can't go wrong with that.
