Poorboys Natty Blue - liquid or hard?

I was on DI's website looking at their Columbus Day sale, and noticed a LIQUID version of Natty Blue. I was wondering if anyone's used it and how it compares to the traditional hard wax they sell? I personally think that the regular one is a great bargain wax so I was wondering if the liquid is just easier to apply or if its actually a different formula?

I have the liquid and it works well. Smells great too.

Don't know how it compares to the hard wax. I use a rotary buffer to apply and wipe clean with microfiber clothes. Super easy to use.

I was a actually wondering about this too. I have a DA polisher and being able to apply the liquid with that is tempting, but I want to make sue its still a good product. This would be going over the top of some BFWD sealant, so I'm not too worried about protection. Just wondering of it has good depth. Both my cars are silver, so I probably won't be able to tell anyway.

I put it over BFWD too. Great minds

Ive tried the liquid. Quick on/off. Great shine and protection. Great value wax for sure

Have and used both, no discernible difference in looks between the two. The liquid is stupid simple to apply via a DA and ensures you get thin even coverage. I can do a whole car in 30 minutes that way. I say get whichever is cheaper and apply via machine either way.

I use pbn liquid blue. It's been working just fine for me and has lived through weeks of rain and power washes when applied properly.

Nice results on your space grey! I think I'll switch to a bottle when I finish my paste wax (no sense wasting it), because it looks like it's at least as good but easier to apply
