man, I know the stuff is good, but christ, $1100 and $2500 for the stuff is a bit out of my league!

is there something else that is somewhat comparable, long lasting, in the $100 range.....something OTHER than Zaino?

i am telling you at 6.66$ an application for Swissvax BOS there is nothing better imo in that price range.. you get about 30-35 apps per pot.. that will last you for years unless store it in the desert.. if you don't wanna spend that much.. go to pete's 53 or victoria.. everyone raves about victoria..though i haven't used either personally.. I LOVE SWISSVAX!!!!!!!!!!!! you don't have to buy mystery or Crystal Rock.. Crystal Rock hands down is the best i have ever used.. but in reality BOS isn't that far behind.. it is an amazing wax to both work with and admire!! i am on month 4.5 now and i still have nice beads after applying cleaner fluid then jet seal 109 then Swissvax Bos as the nuba topper.. i used about half as much BOS as i did CG ezyme..ezyme is soooooooo greasy.. it melts super easily henze the applicator soaks it up.. when i used BOS the pot still looked almost like new..ezyme was a 1/4 inch down at least..point is if you buy a 100$ wax (not that ezyme is it is a 275$ wax) during application it can cost you double or triple b/c of the way it is applied.. some just soak up the applicators more than others. so if you want a wax that will last and not break the bank too much go for swissvax BOS.. if you really can't handel spending 200 on a pot go for victoria wax.. the red one.. oh and i forgot..dodo juice super natural..and fyi i find swissvax concourso and BOS to be much superior to zymol concourse in every way.. zymol concourse is much much more difficulrt to remove and doesn't pop quite as well as swissvax concourso.. swissvax BOS isn't as bright as concourso but it has better depth and a ton of gloss.

Under $100 for a beauty wax I'd go with Souveran or P21S 100%. For a decent compromise of looks and durability I'd go with Collinite 476S.

Souveran isn't too long lasting, I would go with Lusso Oro, there is a sale for it right now on DD. Or Victoria's, I just got some of that in the mail yesterday.

And the Wolfgang Fuzion thats on sale right now, there is no free refill, so I don't know.
