Collinite, I've tried many different types of wax and this stuff is very, very good. The paste wax seems to be a little more durable then their liquid wax. The paste wax requires a tad more labor to remove than the liquid. If your looking for that "wet" look, you will not be disappointed. I've never tried Leverage, but heard many good things about the product.

3M is a good product and I've tried just about every wax they make. IMO, Collinite seems to be more durable and has a deeper longer lasting shine. There is a lot of good information about Collinte on the web and most of it seems to be favorable.

From with I've heard Leverage is a great product....I met Donnie down at the Miami Boat show where he was doing the OL's and MTI's, I would think it's pretty good stuff if they are using it...

I plan on using it on mine when she gets done...
