Zymol Spray Glaze vs Meguiars Ultimate Spray Wax vs ???

I just picked up a bottle of Zymol Spray Glaze. I've never used any Zymol product before, but I've read a lot of good and nothing really negative so I thought I'd give it a try.

Last season I was using NXT2.0 as my main waxing product and am very pleased with it. I used Collinite over the winter and the stuff is as durable as advertised. It held up through the entire winter and is still beading

Anyone have any input or feedback on the Zymol Spray Glaze?

I prefer either Duragloss aquawax or Optimum car wax when it comes to spray waxes. Aquawax can be found at carquest if there is one by you.

I've tried a lot of wax's over the years, and have not found a better compromise between application and durability of Colinite 845.
The stuff just plain rocks.

I have used the Meguiars Ultimate quick wax and I love it. Its a great easy to apply quick wax for in-between waxes.

I haven´t used the Zymol product you mention, but the Zymol paste waxes I´ve used have all been awesome! They don´t last much but they always leave the cars in show quality

For a quick, in between wax spray, I've been using Turtle Wax Ice Synthetic Spray Wax. I really like it actually.

Thinking I might try something else though this summer. Maybe NXT stuff.

+1 on Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Wax...I use it after every weekly wash...until it's time for the quarterly wax job.

Zymol product is a cleaner wax, I am not a fan of cleaner waxes, if I want to remove the old wax, I will just wash the car with some Dawn dish washing detergent...
Apply a polymer base then a carnauba wax over that and you are good to go for several months… But the best way to make your wax stay the longest, avoid water…
I have never had any luck with a spray wax, spray detailer, the only thing I ever use spray wax for, clay baring the car… then I wash it off with some Dawn dish washing detergent...

Nor am I. The bottle does not say anywhere that it is a cleaner wax. I even put on my reading glasses to be 100% sure.

I initially used the Collinite in early November for winter proection. It's still beading! Really impressed.

i think I am going to put down another base of Collinite, then NXT and try the Zymol for my weekly after-wash wax

If the Zymol doesn't do it for me, back to Meguiars I'll go

Exactly, my wife picked up the turtle wax stuff one time and it worked perfectly.

Back in the day(really long time ago) Zymol was my favorite wax, you could get in liquid paste and can. At that time it was a cleaner wax, with much less cleaner and much more wax than Meguairs cleaner/wax. I have not used their spray wax/detailers, actually haven't seen Zymol in years. It was a PITA to remove and leave an even coat, but when done properly looked incredible, especially on black.

One other product I used in the spray wax/detailer category not yet mentioned with excellent results was Lucas quick detailer.

Collinite is my go to wax. But I do like using a spray wax after washes as a topper.

+1 on the Lucas. This gives more pop and shine than any other quick detailer I've used. And it smells like bubble gum

Yes, not just bubble gum, but Bubblelicious..... If the Zymol spray smell likes the original paste it's not bad either, it had more of a banana smell IIRC. Talking about all this is making me hungry...
